Venezuela’s president rejects dialogue proposed by Mexico and Uruguay, will not negotiate with human rights violators

Venezuela’s interim president, Juan Guaido, is rejecting offers from Uruguay and Mexico to organize talks with murderous dictator Nicolas Maduro. Guaido stated emphatically he will not negotiate with human rights violators.

Moreover, Mexico’s support of the socialist dictatorship in Venezuela in addition to the extensive business relationship between the corrupt Maduro regime and the son of Uruguay’s president makes any talks organized by these two countries quite dubious.

Guaidó Tells Uruguay and Mexico: We Won’t Dialogue with Human Rights Violators

Venezuela’s interim president has emphatically rejected Mexico and Uruguay’s offers of dialogue; while recent information has come to light showing the extent of the Uruguayan president’s son’s business dealings with Venezuela.

Claiming to be neutral, the presidents of Mexico and Uruguay, recently sent a statement to Venezuela’s interim president, Juan Guaidó, with an invitation to dialogue; Guaidó unequivocally rejected the proposal.

“If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you are on the side of the oppressor,” said Guaidó, echoing the words of Nobel Peace laureate Desmond Tutu, who called for the release of Venezuelan political prisoners.

He invited both leaders, Tabaré Vázquez Rosas and Andrés Manuel López Obrador, to “join the right side” and endorse what is dictated by articles 233, 333, and 350 of the Venezuelan Constitution, which call for early elections and decree the president of the National Assembly to be interim president.

He affirmed that he will not be a participant in “talks and negotiations whose purpose is to keep human rights violators in power by means of deception.”

He asked that they support the cessation of the usurpation, “because the presidency of Nicolás Maduro is not legitimate, to the degree that it led to the creation of the Lima Group, made up of the leaders of a dozen nations in the region who affirm the illegitimacy of Maduro.”

Guaidó is also calling for collaboration to achieve a transitional government through free elections, as dictated by the Constitution.
