No Possibility of Coup in Venezuela, Risk of External Meddling Remains – Caracas

Venezuelan Deputy Foreign Minister Ivan Gil has said in a statement that any resolution to the crisis in the country should be through a dialogue between the opposition and the government.

“We can assure our strategic partners here in Russia that there is neither a possibility of a military coup, nor of a popular uprising in Venezuela, because most of the population understands what is happening and is mobilised to support the legitimate government”, Gil said at a Moscow meeting with lawmaker Konstantin Kosachev, who chairs the Foreign Affairs Committee in Russia’s upper house of parliament.

Gil added, though, that there was always the risk of external interference that could “wreak havoc”.

He continued on by saying that Venezuela’s oil industry is one of the country’s main targets.

Venezuela is ready for a dialogue with the opposition and maintains in constant contact with its representatives, according to Ivan Gil.

“Any decision that will help resolve differences between the opposition and the government should be made through a national dialogue, so we supported the proposal by the group from Mexico, Uruguay, and the CARICOM countries, which includes four phases of conflict resolution”, Gil said in Russia’s Federation Council.
