Former Colombian President Alvaro Uribe lashed out at Nobel Peace Prize winner Adolfo Perez Esquivel Thursday, calling the Argentine a promoter of terrorism.
Perez Esquivel is one of the participants in a forum on peace in Colombia, held in Buenos Aires, also attended by Piedad Cordoba, a Colombian politician who was banned from the Senate last year for her alleged ties to the FARC.
According to the former President, Perez Esquivel defames the Nobel Peace Prize.
The sculptor, activist and pacifist received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1980 for his work to promote human rights and his protest against the military dictatorship that ruled his country until 1983.
The Argentine has long been a outspoken opponent of Uribe.
