Colombians are happy because the government signed a peace deal with the rebel group FARC. It ends 52 years of fighting. Over 220,000 people died and millions lost their home. There were two years of talks between the two sides. Colombia's president said it was, "the beginning of the end to the suffering, pain and tragedy of war". A spokesman said: "This agreement opens the door to a more inclusive society." Both sides will now work together for the victims.

FARC started during the Cold War. It will now help in the process to shape Colombia's future. In the capital city, thousands of people celebrated the peace on the streets. One Colombian said: "I can die in peace because finally I'll see my country without violence, with a future for my children." Colombians will vote on the peace deal in October. The president said: "It will be the most important election of our lives."
