The nation’s largest rebel group and Colombia’s government have announced a deal to stop among the world’s longest-running armed clashes.
The agreement stops over 50 years of violence that has claimed more than 220,000 lives and driven five million people from their homes.
Voters must still ratify the deal with the FARC group.
Colombia’s president Juan Manuel Santos says national hope has become reality: Colombians, Now I speak with heavy emotion and great enjoyment to you.
A huge selection of Colombians have celebrated a historic peace treaty between the government and left wing Farc rebels, signed after 52 years of conflict.
The announcement was broadcast live from Havana, Cuba on Wednesday, where peace talks are held for greater than two years.
The battle has killed an estimated 220,000 people and displaced millions.
President Juan Manuel Santos called the deal “the beginning of the end to the suffering, pain and tragedy of war”.
