Any foreign interference in Venezuela to harm future international relations — diplomat

BRUSSELS, March 15. /TASS/. Any interference into the crisis in Venezuela will deal a serious blow to the basis and the future of international relations, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Vershinin said.

"We believe that Venezuelans need to find the solution on their own, through a broad dialogue. Anything else, including calls to recognize some illegitimate president constitute a very serious violation of the fundamental basis of international relations and of the basic principles of the UN charter. We must not let this happen, because it’s not only about Venezuela, it’s about how we view the future of international relations today," he said.

The Russian deputy foreign minister added that the UN Security Council has already rejected the Russian and US draft resolutions on situation in the country.

"Of course, we could not give our consent to the US variant, which constituted a blatant, totally cynical interference into the domestic affairs of a country and envisaged the use of humanitarian aid for political purposes," he said.
