Venezuela – UNASUR mediation (June 6, 2016)


The situation in Venezuela is troubling.

Working with its European partners, France supports the mediation effort by the Union of South American Nations (UNASUR) led by former Spanish Prime Minister José Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, former Dominican President Leonel Fernandez, and former Panamanian President Martin Torrijos.

We hope that their efforts will enable the Venezuelan Parliament and Government to renew their dialogue to find a solution to the crisis, ease the political climate, and bring about a true national reconciliation that respects human rights and fundamental liberties.
