The President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro, welcomed the initiative taken by Mexico and Uruguay for a national dialogue and reaffirmed his willingness for a dialogue with all political sectors.
“I have seen that two Latin American governments have taken an initiative, which seems to me, must be the path. A diplomatic initiative, initiative for dialogue. The governments of Mexico and Uruguay have proposed what is believed to be an international initiative to promote a dialogue between parties in Venezuela for searching a negotiation, a national consensus,” he declared.
“To the governments of Mexico and Uruguay, I say, I am in agreement for a diplomatic initiative for a national dialogue in Venezuela. I am ready for a dialogue, a negotiation, for consensus”, he stated from the headquarters of the Supreme Court of Justice.
During the start of the judicial year 2019, he stressed that this dialogue must respect the Constitution of the Republic, and all political sectors of national life will participate in it.
He specified that Venezuela is now within a historical battle for international law in the face of coup attempt of the USA. “Interventionism is not the way,” declared Maduro.
Also, he thanked the governments of the world like Turkey, Russia, China among others, who have ratified their support for the sovereignty of Venezuela.
