During the visit by Uruguayan Foreign Minister, Rodolfo Nin Novoa, to his Mexican pair, Marcelo Ebrard, a bilateral meeting was held as part of the "Montevideo Mechanism," a tool created in February of this year to provide a solution to the political conflict in Venezuela.
As a result of the meeting, the "Mexico Declaration" was issued, a document in which the member countries of the Montevideo Mechanism emphasized their willingness to contribute to a peaceful and democratic solution that would allow Venezuela to achieve peace and stability.
Secretary @m_ebrard held a meeting with the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Eastern Republic of Uruguay, Rodolfo Nin Novoa, during the II Meeting of the Montevideo Mechanism.
Countries called on "all actors to resume the path of a broad, credible and inclusive dialogue".
The document also states that "in light of the fact that other initiatives have not prospered, we endorse our position in favor of a dialogue based on impartiality as proposed by the Kingdom of Norway".
They also "reiterated" to the Venezuelan actors "the willingness of the Montevideo Mechanism to accompany any initiative for inclusive dialogue within a framework of respect for the principles of non-intervention, the legal equality of States, the peaceful settlement of disputes, respect for human rights, constitutional order and the self-determination of people".
In addition, they expressed their "concern" for the humanitarian situation in Venezuela, and in this regard "categorically rejected the activation of the Inter-American Treaty of Reciprocal Assistance (TIAR), as it is an instrument designed to stop aggressions between states, not to address humanitarian situations. Uruguay voted against the invocation of this treaty and then announced its withdrawal from it.
Towards the end of the document, they "thanked" Gustavo Béliz, a member of the transition team of Argentina's elected President, Alberto Fernández, and "invited" this country "to join the Montevideo Mechanism, once the new government takes office," on December 10.
