Yesterday afternoon, the Alternate Minister of Foreign Affairs, Giorgos Katrougalos, met with the Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of Venezuela, Ivan Gil.
Mr. Katrougalos reiterated Greece’s solidarity with the Venezuelan people at this critical time, highlighting that the crisis can be overcome only through the broadest possible political dialogue.
For this reason, he stressed, substantial progress in the Santo Domingo talks is vital. Mr. Katrougalos also underscored the need to fully safeguard democratic and constitutional processes and ensure the participation of all political forces, with no exclusions, in the 2018 presidential elections.
Greece supports these positions also within the framework of the European Union, supporting the latter’s active diplomatic contribution towards the resolution of the crisis.
