The leader of the delegation of the Venezuelan Unitary Platform, Gerardo Blyde, affirmed this Saturday prior to the new round of negotiations in Mexico, that said process is the result of the constant struggle of the Venezuelan people to restore democracy and freedom.
“We come to work, to seek agreements that alleviate the serious humanitarian crisis suffered by the people of Venezuela, whose sole responsibility is the regime, which has imposed a model that generates misery,” said Mr. Blyde during a meeting with the media in Mexico City.
However, the Venezuelan representative said that it is still necessary to open this process to various social sectors to receive its contributions and ideas.
“These agreements seek to alleviate the humanitarian crisis to some extent, but all Venezuelans know that there will be no permanent solution to our deep economic crisis as long as there is no democracy, which means autonomous institutions, respect for human rights, return to constitutional order, clear coexistence rules , and that Venezuelans can freely choose their destiny. With them, Venezuela will reintegrate itself into the concert of nations, regain confidence and move towards a sustainable economic recovery,” he added.
Finally, Blyde indicated that the actors in the process will not forget history or redeem those responsible for the tragedy that Venezuela has suffered.
“We come to open respectfully, but decisively, a space where we remember the need to rethink ourselves as a Republic, to abandon the stubbornness of the model that has only brought hunger and misery, to abandon the agenda of annihilation of dissent and especially, that we can give back to the Venezuelan people the voice that tells us the path we must travel,” concluded Blyde.
