Secretary-General Voices Concern over Developments in Venezuela, Urges Government, Opposition to Relaunch Negotiations

The following statement was issued today by the Spokesman for UN Secretary-General António Guterres:

The Secretary-General is closely following events in Venezuela.  He is concerned that recent developments could lead to further escalation of tensions and distance the country from a path conducive to a peaceful solution to its challenges.

He is convinced that the Venezuelan crisis cannot be solved through the imposition of unilateral measures, but requires a political solution based on dialogue and compromise.

At this critical time for the country, the Secretary-General once again urges the Government of Venezuela and the opposition to relaunch negotiations for the benefit of the Venezuelan people.  He is strongly supporting the ongoing efforts of the international facilitators and regional actors who are seeking to contribute to this end.
