Caracas, Apr 24 (Prensa Latina) President Nicolas Maduro met with the German lawmaker Andrej Hunko, as part of the so-called Bolivarian Peace Diplomacy with which Venezuela seeks to strengthen relations with the European community.
The head of State said on Twitter that the meeting took place at the Miraflores Palace (the venue of the Executive) with a view to propitiating through dialogue the respect for International Law, ‘violated in recent times by whoever wants to besmirch the sovereignty of the South American country’.
Maduro explained that Hunko is a member of the Commissions on European Affairs, Foreign Policy and Budget of the German Parliament, in addition to represent the Die Linke party in the Federal Congress. The German lawmaker was received on April 18 by Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza to analyze the mechanisms to foster bilateral ties between the regions in favor of peace and political and social stability.
The visit by the German lawmaker is taking place a few days after the Juridical Service of the Federal Parliament (Bundestag) of Germany published a report in which it described as premature the recognition by Berlin of the self-proclaimed ‘president in charge’, Juan Guaido, an action that Venezuela authorities have described as an attempt at establishing a parallel government.
However, according to the document, a mere recognition of the opposition lawmaker would not imply its legitimization.
