After the visit of British Prime Minister Theresa May, Colombian President Juan Santos said that he could not exclude a possibility of another referendum after a new peace agreement between the government and the rebels.

The Prime Minister and President Juan Manuel Santos singed several agreements; in addition, London would transfer 33 million pounds, probably to cover the costs of negotiations. 

There May said: « As the UK prepares to leave the EU, I am determined that Britain should become the global champion of free trade, and that means boosting trade with fast-growing economies like Colombia».

Moreover, Juan Santos didn’t want to hold a referendum, explaining it with a lack of funds, which were immediately transferred by the United Kingdom.
