Venezuela – Political situation (25 April 2017)


France deplores the renewed violence in Venezuela, which has already left more than 20 people dead. It renews its appeal for calm and for respect for the right to demonstrate peacefully.

We call on the Venezuelan authorities to establish a clear electoral timetable as swiftly as possible and to restore the powers granted to Parliament under the Venezuelan constitution.

Dialogue between all Venezuelan political forces must be resumed as swiftly as possible and implemented in good faith.
