Bolivia and Venezuela will work together to promote multilateralism in the region.
Both countries' representatives highlighted the historic nature of the moment and their shared interests in enriching mutual cooperation.

During the event, both countries' representatives coincided in highlighting the importance of bilateral relations between the two nations and their intentions to promote multilateralism in the region.

Likewise, they highlighted the historical moment, representing the return to Bolivia of the diplomatic representation of the Constitutional Government of Venezuela, headed by President Nicolás Maduro.
After the coup d'état that led to the resignation of former President Evo Morales, the de facto government broke diplomatic relations with the legally constituted authorities in Venezuela and recognized the self-titled "interim president" Juan Guaidó.
President Luis Arce abandoned such a position. He had announced the reestablishment of diplomatic relations with the Venezuelan Constitutional Government as one of his administration's first acts before he took office.
