Remember in 2000, when President Clinton came to Cartagena just before Plan Colombia started, the country was on the verge of becoming a failed state.

Overview: Colombia

Meanwhile, the negotiations between the government and representatives of FARC continued in Cuba. The talks- initially held in secret for some seven months, appeared to be advancing slowly. A five-point agenda had been agreed, but the Santos administration – believing itself to have the upper hand – had refused a ceasefire, demanding instead the demobilisation of the FARC. The government appeared to be playing hard-ball on the agenda itself, saying that it would agree to nothing until agreement was reached on all the five points set out on the agreed agenda. Nearly a quarter of a million Colombians lost their lives in 50 years of conflict, according to a Colombian government-funded report. Some observers calculate that a comprehensive peace agreement could boost Colombia’s gross domestic product (GDP) by as much as 1.5 per cent.
