September 20, 2019


The governments of Mexico and Uruguay have reiterated this Thursday their support for dialogue and negotiation between the Government and the opposition of Venezuela to achieve a peaceful solution in the country.

“We reiterate, as we did on February 6 in Montevideo, that the path of dialogue and negotiation is the only acceptable way to reach a peaceful solution to the situation that Venezuela is going through,” said the Mexican Ministry of Foreign Affairs it's a statement.

The Mexican Ministry has indicated that it hopes that the current dialogue efforts will take place within an “inclusive framework of civility and peace” to achieve “real and democratic solutions that foster trust between the parties.”

Both governments have applauded the release of the vice president of the National Assembly of Venezuela, Edgar Zambrano, and have called on the Venezuelan authorities to continue efforts to free “all those who are in similar circumstances.”

The dialogue between the teams of the opponent Juan Guaidó and the president of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, started in Oslo in May and continued in Barbados until in August the 'Chavismo' left the negotiating table, as he explained then, in protest the new sanctions of the United States on Venezuela.

This week, Guaidó has revealed that he offered Maduro a transitional government in which neither were present to lead the country to “real” presidential elections, revive the Venezuelan economy and get humanitarian aid to enter the country.

The Miraflores Palace has moved token this week signing an agreement with four minority parties of the Venezuelan opposition, the so-called National Mesa, to initiate a new dialogue with a view to future political forces that wish to join.
