The Union of South American Nations (UNASUR) will hold Thursday, June 23 in Quito, Ecuador, an extraordinary meeting of the Council of Ministers of Foreign Affairs to evaluate the dialogue process promoted by the national government with all sectors of the country, including the Venezuelan opposition, to overcome the current national situation.
According to a communique of UNASUR, released Saturday in its Twitter account (@UNASUR), this meeting will also be attended by ex-presidents Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero of Spain, Leonel Fernandez of the Dominican Republic and Martin Torrijos of Panama, who accompany the initiative from the Venezuelan government and supported by the General Secretariat of UNASUR.
The purpose “is to find the best solutions for Venezuelans to resolve their differences,” says the statement signed on Saturday June 18 at its headquarters, located in Quito.
The first meetings to explore the start of a national dialogue between the Venezuelan government and representatives of opposition political parties were held in late May in Santo Domingo, capital of Dominican Republic. In a later statement, UNASUR ratified its support for this process of dialogue and invited the opposition to attend meetings in pursuit of peace, welfare and respect for the Constitution.
On several occasions, the Government has reaffirmed their wish to establish dialogue with all sectors in order to build common proposals for the development and social progress of the country, including the contributions of sectors opposed to the Bolivarian Revolution.
