German foreign minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier is in Colombia, where he has praised the peace process that has put an end to more than half a century of conflict in the country.
Colombia is set to succeed in its fight against drug trafficking, following the FARC peace deal. But coca-growing farmers worry they will be left without any means of support. Mira Galanova reports.
No one knows what will happen in Colombia after the peace deal with FARC rebels was rejected in a referendum. For now the ceasefire is in place - but the winning "no" campaign better come up with a plan, analysts say.
Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos has met his predecessor Alvaro Uribe - the key opponent of his deal with the FARC rebels. The two agreed to form a commission to evaluate the terms of a new accord with the group.
With a narrow majority, Colombian voters have rejected a peace deal between the government and Marxist FARC rebels in a surprising upset. Colombia's president has said a ceasefire agreement will remain in effect.
