The EU insists that representatives of the Assembly are “privileged interlocutors” after the dismissal of Guaidó

BRUSSELS, Jan. 13 (.) –

The European Union has designated this Friday the representatives of the 2015 National Assembly with an opposition majority as “important actors and privileged interlocutors” after the dismissal of Juan Guaidó as president of the institution and “president in charge” of the country.

In statements to Europa Press about the future treatment that the EU will maintain with Guaidó and the Venezuelan opposition, a spokesperson for the bloc has underlined the support for the actors who work for the democratic future in Venezuela and specifically its recognition of the Assembly elected at the end of of 2015, which for the international community is the last democratic institution of the South American country.

“We respect the decision of the deputies to the National Assembly in 2015 on their new leadership, including the creation of the Commission for the protection of Venezuelan assets abroad,” he assessed the decision to end Guaidó’s mandate and abolish the figure of president in charge.

Guaidó proclaimed himself “president in charge” of Venezuela almost four years ago, asserting his leadership of the Assembly. Then more than fifty countries endorsed this movement and recognized him as interim president, but international support has been fading in recent times and in 2021 the European Union stopped giving him preferential treatment to refer to him as an interlocutor among others in the Venezuelan opposition.

In this sense, the EU reiterates its position after Guaidó’s departure and stresses that the representatives of the opposition parties elected to the 2015 National Assembly “continue to be considered important actors and privileged interlocutors for the EU”.

Community diplomacy underlines the European commitment to the Venezuelan people to find a political and peaceful solution to the humanitarian crisis that allows a “total return” to democracy and the Right-wing State in Venezuela, through the holding of “credible, transparent and inclusive.

In the new political context in Venezuela, with the launch of the dialogue process in Mexico between the government and the opposition, the EU stresses that the negotiations are “the only path towards a peaceful and sustainable solution” to the crisis and applauds the first humanitarian agreements reached within the conversations.

In this sense, the community spokesman has reiterated the call to the parties that sit down in the Mexican capital to negotiate pragmatically, “assuming commitments and putting the interests of the Venezuelan people first.”
