This Wednesday, the president of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, informed that he spoke with the newly elected president of Colombia, Gustavo Petro, about the willingness to restore normality on the border that unites both nations:
“I spoke with the president-elect of Colombia, Gustavo Petro, and on behalf of the Venezuelan people I congratulated him for his victory. We discussed about the willingness to restore normalcy at the borders, various issues about peace and the prosperous future of both peoples”, said the head of state through his social networks.
It is worth mentioning that last Sunday, June 19, Gustavo Petro was elected as the new president of Colombia, where he obtained a 50.48% advantage against 47.26% of his adverse candidate, Rodolfo Hernández.
In this sense, the National Executive congratulated Petro for his electoral victory: “I congratulate Gustavo Petro and Francia Márquez, for the historic victory in the presidential elections in Colombia. The will of the Colombian people, who came out to defend the path of democracy and peace, was heard. New times are in sight for this brotherly country”, he published in another tweet.
“I spoke with the elected president of Colombia @petrogustavo, and on behalf of the Venezuelan people, I congratulated him on his victory. We discussed about the willingness to restore normality on the borders, various issues about Peace and the prosperous future of both peoples.”
