Venezuela, note from the Prime Minister’s Office

Dalla Presidenza del Consiglio dei Ministri:

4 Febbraio 2019

Italy supports the desire of the Venezuelan people to have new free and transparent presidential elections as quickly as possible, through a peaceful and democratic process and with full respect for the principle of self-determination.

It is most urgent to take immediate action to relieve the suffering of the population and allow immediate access to humanitarian aid.

The security of citizens must also be guaranteed by abstaining from all forms of violence and also free and peaceful demonstrations of dissent and protest must be guaranteed, without any form of coercion. Italy will actively participate in the work of the International Contact Group through its Foreign Affairs Minister, who will participate in the first meeting scheduled for February 7th in Montevideo.
