President Iván Duque has received several criticisms, who will present before the UN Security Council, progress in the implementation of the Peace with Legality policy.
Senator Iván Cepeda pointed out from his Twitter account: “Why is Duque going to the UN Security Council? He says that he is going to promote the “achievements” of “peace with legality.” Will you explain that in the first three months of this year violence increased more than 620%? Will he explain the army massacre in Putumayo as a new ‘false positive’?”, he questioned.
