Don Felipe said, “Political action and the use of military means, while necessary, are not sufficient to prevent and confront the number of conflicts rooted in the terrorist phenomena.”

He went on, “That’s why there’s a need to analyze and put into practice a strategy that incorporates non-traditional security measures, concrete foreign policy actions and fundamental actors, like young people, women and local communities.”
