Colombian Foreign Minister Claudia Blum resigns amid the social crisis in the country

Chancellor of Colombia, Claudia Blum, introduced the president Ivan Duque her letter of resignation, when the country is immersed in one of the greatest social and political crises in recent years due to more than two weeks of protests and mobilizations.

“By means of the present, I want in the most respectful way to present to you my irrevocable resignation to the position of Minister of Foreign Relations, effective immediately”, reads from the letter, dated May 11, but made public today.

Colombia has been immersed since April 28 in important and massive citizen protests that began as a rejection of the now defunct tax reform that the Government wanted to approve, but which now brings together other demands such as the resignation of the president, the reform of the police or that he lay down an attempt to reform health.
