Venezuela rejects EU statement on 6D parliamentary elections
The government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela rejects the statement by the High Representative of the European Union, Josep Borrell, on the December 6 legislative elections in Venezuela. It is regrettable that the EU persists in its interventionist policy towards Venezuela, in frank disregard of the most elementary principles of international law.
However, despite this inertial position of the European Union and beyond the colonialist reminiscences envisaged in the aforementioned declaration, Venezuela takes note of the interest expressed by the member states of this organization in supporting and respecting the inclusive processes of political dialogue. that are undertaken between Venezuelan men and women, in order to overcome the difficulties of the current economic situation.
The Government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela reiterates the broad will for dialogue it has shown in recent years with all sectors of the Venezuelan opposition, including those who participated in the electoral process on December 6 and those who decided not to don’t participate.
In this sense, President Nicolás Maduro Moros has already announced the imminence of new meeting processes to which the most diverse political, social and economic actors in the country will be invited. To this end, the new National Assembly, which should be installed on January 5, 2021, is called to be the great forum for national dialogue in which all actors can participate, without restrictions, to reach the agreements that the peoples of Venezuela aspire to and deserved.
