To explain what the National Salvation Agreement is about, its scope and urgency, the President of Venezuela, Juan Guaidó, held a meeting with the Youth of the Christian Democratic Organization of America (JODCA).
In the online meeting held this Wednesday afternoon, and in which more than a hundred youths from Latin America participated, Guaidó thanked in the first instance the defense, which each one gives in their nations, of the values and principles that govern democracy.
“The National Salvation Agreement is a process of joint pressure with our international allies to achieve a solution to the crisis in Venezuela in an effective and urgent manner. Our banner of struggle is very clear: recover democracy.”
The Interim President explained that said Agreement basically proposes to generate the entry of vaccines against COVID-19 and Humanitarian Aid, stability and guarantees for economic recovery, release of all political prisoners, reconciliation, reinstitutionalization and democratic guarantees for all political sectors of the country, and the return of democracy with free and fair presidential, parliamentary, regional and municipal elections.
He also said that the Agreement is for all sectors, including those that support Maduro’s regime.
Present at the meeting were the President of Copei, Roberto Enriquez, as well as the main authorities of the ODCA.
Democracy at stake
The President in charge of Venezuela told the JODCA youth that “democracy is always at stake,” so he called on them to be alert and not to lower their guard in its defense.
“Simón Bolívar once said: if one of our neighbors is at risk, we all are. That is why today I ask you to take on the challenge of always looking for spaces to act, to link citizens in the exercise of politics.”
He also made a call to the International Community not to limit themselves to being a rapporteur of the crises, but to act more effectively in the search for solutions.
