Latin America nations condemn Venezuela violence


The governments of Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Mexico, Paraguay, Peru and Uruguay are “energetically condemning” the violence in Venezuela and lamenting that international calls for the ongoing demonstrations to be peaceful have been ignored, APA reports quoting the Washington Post.

 

Argentina’s foreign ministry released a statement saying the nine countries back the declaration by the United Nations secretary-general calling for “concrete measures to be adopted by all sides to reduce the polarization and create the conditions necessary to face the country’s challenges for the benefit of the Venezuelan people.”

 

It calls on Venezuelan authorities to respect rights and “retake the path of democratic institutionality,” release political prisoners and set dates for elections, among other things.
