Archbishop hopeful after reelection of Colombian president

.- Archbishop Alberto Giraldo Jaramillo of Medellin expressed his hope this week the president of Colombia, Alvaro Uribe, who has won reelection, will continue to promote dialogue with the rebels in the country and end Colombia’s decades-long civil conflict.

Speaking on local radio, the archbishop said that neither party has broken off dialogue and that the Church would continue to collaborate in peace talks aimed at establishing a humanitarian agreement and a lasting peace.
 
He said he was pleased with the electoral process that the bishops see it as their mission to “support the person who was been chosen by the people to lead the nation forward.”
