MOSCOW, May 29. /ITAR-TASS/. Moscow favors a national dialogue in Venezuela without interference from the outside, Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.
“We express solidarity with the Venezuelan government in its efforts to overcome difficulties and promote talks between the government and the opposition,” Lavrov said after talks with his Venezuelan counterpart Elias Jaua on Thursday.
“All problems should be solved on the constitutional basis, without external interference, as well as without sanctions or threats to impose them,” he said.
Venezuela condemns coup in Ukraine
Venezuela had analyzed the course of events in Ukraine in connection with the coup and condemned actions of neo-Nazi groups against the country's civilian population, Venezuelan Foreign Minister Elias Jaua said on Thursday after talks with Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov.
The Venezuelan minister expressed gratitude for Russia's support for third countries that face threats from the outside to overthrow their governments.
“We discussed the situation in Ukraine and stressed the need to stop using the army against the population, to cease violence and launch a nationwide dialogue for ensuring the rights of citizens and Ukraine’s regions,” Lavrov said.
“We thank Venezuela for its principled stance on Ukraine at international forums, including at the UN General Assembly voting on March 27,” he said.
Jaua said, “It is necessary to strengthen Russian-Venezuelan partnership that will foment peace and the peaceful coexistence."
