Supporting Good Faith Negotiations Among Venezuelans

 

The United States reiterates its call for the complete restoration of democracy in Venezuela. We support earnest negotiations in good faith that will achieve this goal. We call attention to the importance of the Government of Venezuela fulfilling its previous commitments to a democratic path in order to advance the negotiation process.

The United States applauds the efforts of President Medina and the government of the Dominican Republic to foster a process that helps find a peaceful, democratic, and comprehensive solution to Venezuela’s political and humanitarian crisis.
