Zapatero came to Venezuela to continue dialogue process

The former president of Spain, Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, arrived Monday in Venezuela to continue his work in the dialogue process between the Government of Nicolas Maduro and the opposition in the country, which it is driven by the Union of South American Nations (Unasur).
The former President said his arrival in Venezuela responds to the weekly visits to advance the dialogue process he described as “long”. However, he stressed that there is a willingness to advance on it.
Zapatero said on Tuesday that members of the commission will meet with representatives of the Government and the Venezuelan opposition, to advance on what he called a work of “constancy and perseverance.”
In connection with the demonstrations held last September 1 in the South American country, he said its peaceful realization means a breakthrough, “is a common response. Now we must continue working all other issues. ”
In the immediate and medium term, Venezuela will be much better as the Government and the opposition are working together, he said.
In context:
A committee of the Union of South American Nations (Unasur) advances efforts to promote dialogue between the Government of Venezuela and the opposition in order to address fundamental issues for the nation.
As part of the team working on the agenda of dialogue, are the former Presidents of Spain, Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, of Panama, Martín Torrijo; and of the Dominican Republic, Leonel Fernandez.
Venezuela has denounced since 2013 an alliance between business sectors and the Venezuelan opposition in order to sabotage the Venezuelan economy through price gouging, hoarding and smuggling of products. Before the attacks of this sector, President Maduro has insisted on dialogue, especially in the last days before the plans to generate violence.
