The National Government ratified on Monday its willingness to resume the process of dialogue with sectors of the opposition sectors, under the auspices of the Kingdom of Norway.

The President of the Republic, Nicolás Maduro Moros, applauded the series of partial agreements signed by representatives of the opposition and the Bolivarian Government on Monday, to advance the political, economic and social agenda of the country.

In this regard, he instructed the Vice-president of the Republic, Delcy Rodríguez, to act in correspondence with the proposals emanating from the national dialogue, specifically at the point that proposes the implementation of the oil exchange program for food, medicine and supplies for basic services accordingly with the existing technical mechanisms in the United Nations System.

In the presence of the diplomatic corps accredited in the country, the government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela and representatives of the opposition signed an agreement on Monday that includes the installation of a national peace dialogue table, aimed at achieving measures that guarantee the political and socioeconomic rights of Venezuelans.

The founding principle of this mechanism is the broad dialogue, without exclusions, whose method is based on partial, open and transparent agreements to which all the representative sectors of Venezuelan society and the political forces may be added.

The treaty was always a mechanism imposed by the USA with the aim of legitimizing military interventions in Latin America for ideological reasons as it has happened in Guatemala (1954), in Cuba (1961), in the Dominican Republic (1965), in Grenada (1983) and in Panama (1989).

The Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation (CPPC) repudiates the worsening of the illegal US blockade against the people of Venezuela and its Bolivarian Revolution, announced by the US/ Donald Trump Administration.

The CPPC defends the legitimate right of the peoples to sovereignly decide their path of development - a right enshrined in the UN Charter and International Law - a long-standing position that is all the more important to restate at a time when there is an increasing open and blatant threat, with pressure, blackmail, blockade and interference with the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, which aims to hit and worsen the living conditions of its people.

The People’s Power Minister for Tourism and Foreign Trade, Félix Plasencia, announced that they analyze the possibility of directly connecting, via commercial air, the capitals and other cities of Russia and Venezuela.

He explained that currently Russian visitors have to stop at other airports to reach Venezuela, but “soon we must have the possibility of making direct trips between capitals or major cities of Russia and Venezuela”.

The People’s Power Minister for Foreign Relations, Jorge Arreaza, said that the Venezuelan government, unlike Colombia, will demonstrate, with reliable and irrefutable evidence before the General Assembly of the United Nations Organization (UN), the manufacture of guerrilla acts in Colombian territory to assault Venezuela.

“We will bring irrefutable information to the UN, not absurd elucubrations like those presented by Colombia. We will demonstrate with locations, coordinates, photographs, testimonials, dates and names, ”wrote the Foreign Minister through his Twitter account @jarreaza.

On Tuesday, the Vice-minister for Multilateral Issues of the People’s Power for Foreign Relations, Alexander Yánez, on behalf of the Bolivarian Government ratified his unrestricted support to the Republic of Nicaragua after the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (UN), Michelle Bachelet, presented a report devoid of objectivity and impartiality about the reality in the Central American country.
