Venezuela’s presidential commissioner for foreign relations, Julio Borges, reported that he notified the European Parliament, European Party leaders and the Vatican of an European tour by a group of fake opponents of the dictatorship.
Borges issued a comuniqué to the European representatives and indicated that the group does not represent Venezuelans or the National Assembly, the only legitimate institution in Venezuela.
In the same way, the diplomatic representative assured that the group “are an instrument of deception of Nicolás Maduro’s usurping dictatorship”.
“The only legitimate interlocutor part for the search for a political solution, with conditions and guarantees, to end the crisis in Venezuela, is held by President (e) Juan Guaidó,” he said.
TEXT OF THE COMUNIQUÉ
By means of this letter, I respectfully address you in the opportunity to reiterate that any action or encounter with guarantees that seeks to consolidate a political solution to the serious generalized crisis facing my country, contemplates a single valid interlocutor in opposition to Nicolás Maduro’s regime, this interlocutor being the President in charge of Venezuela, Juan Guaidó.
As is public knowledge, during the meetings with (sponsored by) Norway, a series of points were discussed among which it was agreed that both President Guaidó and Nicolás Maduro would separate from their posts and a Council of State would be established with the equitable representation of all the country’s political forces and members of the National Armed Force to form a new National Electoral Council that would guarantee respect for the vote and be trustworthy to Venezuelans; political prisoners would be released; humanitarian aid would be granted; and fair presidential elections would be held.
However, Maduro’s regime withdrew from the negotiations in (sponsored by) Oslo demonstrating its lack of political will to reach a consensus with the legitimate actors and put an end to the serious crisis facing my country, in the face of this, it established a pretended dialogue with forces not representative of the Venezuelan people and who only have 8 seats in Parliament and whose members try to hold diplomatic meetings without the legitimacy to do so.
This (negotiations) “table” is a maneuver by the regime to try to create a tailored opposition, aggravating social and political conflicts and generating even more exodus and displacement of Venezuelans outside our borders.
It should be noted that the International Contact Group on Venezuela in its November 1st statement this year stated that: “alternative routes such as the “national table,” which include some minority political forces or recourse to non-political means to remain in power or to achieve a change of power, will not offer the necessary guarantees to overcome the national divide.
This is the reason why we maintain from the government in charge that the only legitimate dialogue as part of the search for a political solution, with conditions and guarantees, and the end of the crisis in Venezuela, is held by the President in Charge, Juan Guaidó.
