The Governments of Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Chile, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Panama, Paraguay, Peru and Uruguay:
Follow with concern the increasing polarization taking place in Venezuela and reiterate their call for the parties to have political will and to engage in a constructive dialogue with solutions that respect the rule of law and constitutional guarantees, thus enabling all Venezuelans to exercise their fundamental rights.
Hope that the demonstrations today develop in total tranquility and safeguard the right of all Venezuelan citizens to express themselves with respect to the democratic practices of our societies.
Welcome with enthusiasm the Vatican monitoring aimed at intensifying , with a sense of urgency, the efforts to provide, with the help of the Government and the opposition, effective and lasting solutions for the Venezuelan people.
