Venezue­lan fac­tions vow to find peace­ful so­lu­tion

The Myanmar Times - - World -

Venezuela’s em­bat­tled govern­ment and the op­po­si­tion com­mit­ted them­selves to seek­ing a peace­ful, demo­cratic way out of a deep­en­ing cri­sis that has led to food short­ages and sky-high in­fla­tion.

“We solemnly agree that our po­lit­i­cal dif­fer­ences can only be set­tled strictly within the frame­work of the con­sti­tu­tion, and along a demo­cratic, peace­ful and elec­toral path,” said a joint state­ment read out by rep­re­sen­ta­tives of both sides in a Vatican-backed di­a­logue. Op­po­si­tion MUD coali­tion leader Je­sus Tor­re­alba has warned his side would seek early elec­tions if Pres­i­dent Ni­co­las Maduro keeps re­fus­ing a ref­er­en­dum, as he has vowed.
