‘The Nobel Interview with Juan Manual Santos’
The Norwegian Nobel Committee has decided to award the Nobel Peace Prize for 2016 to Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos for his resolute efforts to bring the country’s more than 50 year long civil war to an end, a war that has cost the lives of at least 220,000 Colombians and displaced close to six million people.
Al Jazeera’s James Bays and Folly Bah Thibault talk to Colombian president and Nobel peace prize winner Juan Manuel Santos LIVE in Oslo.
Santos won the award for his efforts in negotiating a peace deal with FARC rebels ending Latin America’s longest conflict.
In a live, one-hour interview, Al Jazeera will look at how the peace deal came about, and how Santos now faces the challenge of implementing a plan that was initially rejected by Colombians in a referendum.
Follow the ceremony and Al Jazeera’s news coverage from the weekend’s events in Oslo, followed by the Nobel Interview with Juan Manuel Santos in this exclusive interview.
This is a live broadcast from Oslo at 7.00 pm on Aljazeera Bamba Channel 50.
