​We are concerned by reports of violence against political groups as Colombia prepares for regional elections on 27 October. The United Kingdom is supportive of the Colombian authorities as they seek to ensure sustainable peace in Colombia, and we will continue to work closely with the Colombian government and civil society on the peace process and related matters.
