Caracas, Sep 13 (Prensa Latina) The Venezuelan government and opposition will start a new round of talks in the Dominican Republic today aimed at solving the political crisis in the South American nation, President Nicolás Maduro said.
The president announced yesterday that the socialist leader Jorge Rodriguez will lead the governmental delegation to the meetings, which resulted from an initiative of the Dominican Republic and former head of the Spanish government José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero.
He also expressed his approval for the peaceful proposal and welcomed the willingness of the national right to join that route of dialogue in order to guarantee the tranquility of Venezuelans.
Previously, Maduro read a statement signed by the Secretary General of the United Nations, António Guterres, in which he expresses the full support of the international entity to the proposal of the Dominican Republic and former head of the Spanish government.
In the text, the UN held such initiatives ‘to demonstrate the commitment of Venezuelan politicians to address the challenges of the country through mediation.’
On the other hand, the Venezuelan president affirmed that the Bolivarian Revolution must assume the construction of a pluripolar and multicentric world with the objective of defending national sovereignty and rejecting imperial hegemony against the peoples of the world.
The head of state urged communal power, social organizations, and popular power, to fight to win that battle. ‘Without the people, it will be impossible to advance,’ he said.
Maduro also called on young people to join in the productive work for being the main protagonists of the future development of the South American nation.
