PARIS — Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos praised France's constant support for peace during a meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron in Paris.

Santos won last year's Nobel Peace Prize for his effort resulting in a peace deal with the country's main guerrilla movement, the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia.

Both leaders paid tribute to the victims of a weekend attack in a shopping mall in Colombia's capital that killed three people, including a French woman, and threatened to undermine years of security gains.

Macron and his wife Brigitte greeted Santos in the Elysee courtyard amid ordinary visitors attending concert organized for France's music day. They then had an official dinner at the Elysee palace.
