Members of the European Union and various Latin American representatives arrive Thursday for the meeting with world leaders in an effort to educate on the state of Venezuela and encouraging a peaceful resolution, void of international interference.
Confirming Minister Marcelo Ebrard’s attendance, the Mexican Foreign Ministry stated, “Mexico welcomes the dialogue initiative endorsed by the International Contact Group (ICG), which will take place on February 7 in Montevideo, Uruguay... to promote dialogue towards a peaceful and democratic resolution of the situation in Venezuela.”
Bolivian Minister of Foreign Affairs Diego Pary who also plans to travel to Uruguay Wednesday said peaceful dialogue is the only way to assist the Bolivarian country.
"Bolivia will be present at the conference convened by #Uruguay y #Mexico. We forcefully reject any threat of intervention,” Pary said.
The pair of Latin representatives will be joined by delegates from the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) as well as the ICG, which includes France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom, as well as Costa Rica, Ecuador and Uruguay.
The meeting which was promoted by both Mexican and Uruguayan state authorities, takes place amid the threats and aggressions of the United States and its Western allies against the Venezuelan Government and people.
In a statement Sunday, the ICG said the conference is meant to “identify the way forward, required steps and confidence-building measures for all relevant national actors to engage seriously in a credible process.”
Last week, Uruguayan ambassador to the United Nations, Elbio Rosselli said, "There will be no stability or peace in Venezuela without a political agreement between the various actors through broad and non-exclusive dialogue that includes the government, the entire political spectrum and civil society.”
