This Friday during a meeting with Latin-American media in New York, President Rafael Correa celebrated the start of peace talks between the government of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro and the opposition, while rejecting violent incidents during anti-government protests. “Glad you all seated and talk,” said the president. “You have to find ways of dialogue to solve problems,” he added.
Correa also said that the Government of Venezuela must end its mandate and work to resolve the country’s problems based on dialogue and respect for democracy, but it is not acceptable to pretend to “throw the government away” just because the people does not agree with it. “That’s called a coup,” said Correa.
The dialogue between the two sides began last Thursday with a long session in which each side expressed their version of the reality of the country, accusations were made and responsibility was demanded over the current political crisi , but they agreed that the solution is based on dialogue.
