The National Government normalizes its diplomatic relations with Germany after declaring persona non grata on March 6 to the ambassador of the European country, Daniel Martin Kriener, because of his recurrent acts of interference in the internal affairs of the country.
The information was released on Monday by the Chancellor of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Jorge Arreaza, through a publication in his account on the Twitter social network.
The senior diplomatic official stressed that President Nicolás Maduro authorized the return of the German ambassador to the country to build an agenda of mutual interest, based on respect.
Following, the complete text:
“The Government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela informs to the Venezuelan people and the international community that, after various contacts with the government of the Federal Republic of Germany, a process of normalization of diplomatic relations between the two States has begun, agreed at a meeting held today in Berlin, between the Venezuelan Deputy Minister for Europe, Yván Gil, and the Director for Latin America and the Caribbean of the Federal Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Germany, Marian Schuegraf.
