The government of Costa Rica rejected through a statement the Assembly that Nicolás Maduro’s regime illegally installed this Tuesday, January 5th.
“Costa Rica reaffirms that it does not recognize the legality or legitimacy of the National Assembly installed today, which is the result of a process that did not have the minimum guarantees of transparency, of inclusiveness,” it said.
In the letter, the country reiterated its deep concern about the human rights situation in the country, the humanitarian crisis and the obstacles to the full exercise of political rights by the Venezuelan population.
“We strongly underline the responsibility of Nicolás Maduro’s illegitimate regime in its continued deterioration,” he said.
Furthermore, the Costa Rican Government stated that it will continue to attend to the events and the continuous study of technical-legal criteria, and in permanent consultation with friendly governments and regional partners “to determine the next steps towards a peaceful, realistic and pragmatic solution to the multidimensional crisis suffered by the Venezuelan people.”
This Tuesday, President (E) Juan Guaidó reiterated that the regime’s allies who participated in the electoral fraud on December 6th, are usurping functions and they do not have any recognition from Venezuelans or the international community.
