The President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, said that the dialogue between his Government and the opposition, established last October 30 in Caracas, continues to advance and strengthen, in order to preserve peace and to impulse Venezuela towards higher levels of coexistence.
From Miraflores Palace, where he held a meeting with former Spanish President José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero, who serves as mediator in the talks, the Venezuelan Head of State urged the opposition leadership, headed by Jesús «Chuo» Torrealba, to comply «With the letter, the spirit and the concept» of the agreements signed two weeks ago, among them the National Assembly’s compliance with the decisions of the Supreme Court of Justice.
«When we adopt a document, we do not take it lightly, we comply with the signed word,» he said in a broadcast by Venezolana de Televisión.
He insisted on that the vast majority of the country wants to live in tolerance, and rejected that there still are sectors that want to impose hatred and a desire for revenge.
Rodríguez Zapatero stressed that the dialogue process represents «the future of Venezuela», and ratified his commitment, as an accompanist, so that this initiative will continue to advance strongly in the coming months.
