From the opening page: Synopsis of the Agreements Reached Between the Government of El Salvador and the Frente Farabundo Marti para la Liberacion Nacional (FMLN) Under the Auspices of the Secretary-General of the United Nations. Background: On 16 January 1992, at a solemn ceremony in the Castle of Chapultepec in Mexico City, in the presence of many Heads of State and of the new Secretary-General of the United Nations, Mr. Boutros Boutros-Ghali, the Government of EI Salvador (henceforth referred to as the Government) and the Frente Farabundo Marti para la Liberaci6n Nacional (henceforth referred to as FMLN) signed the Peace Agreement that would put an end to 12 years of bloody civil war in which over 75,000 Salvadorians had lost their lives. The Agreement marked the culmination of a long process which began when the five Central American Presidents asked the Secretary-General of the United Nations to use his good offices to help bring peace to the Central American region, a mission endorsed by the Security Council in its resolution 637 (1989) of 27 July 1989.

The official birth of the peace process, however, was on 7 Au­gust 1987, when the Esquipulas II Agreement designed by Costa Rica's then President Oscar Arias was signed. The Agreement envisaged a comprehensive solution for bringing peace to the region, based on the consolidation of democracy and on the promotion of national dialogue, a general amnesty, a cease-fire, the holding of free and fair elections and the rejection of insurgent groups and irregular forces. It also included a commitment by each country to prevent the use of its territory for destabilizing other countries in the region.
