WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton praised the peace deal between Colombia and the rebel group FARC in a statement on Thursday.

"As president, I'll ensure that the United States remains their partner in that process. The people of Colombia deserve nothing less," Clinton said. "And the safety and security of our hemisphere and world will be strengthened by Colombia's success."
