Bolivian President Evo Morales expressed his support for the beginning of dialogue between opposition forces in Venezuela and the Bolivarian government, and demanded that foreign forces not interfere with the process.
“We salute and support the opening of democratic dialogue in Venezuela,” the President said on his Twitter account.
In the face of the threats and attacks against Venezuela's sovereignty through the Organization of American States, headed by Luis Almagro, and by the United States, Morales demanded that these foreign interests “stop conspiring” in Venezuela's affairs and allow their democratic process to continue.
We demand that [Luis] Almagro and the CIA respect and stop conspiring,” he continued on Twitter.
Saludamos y respaldamos apertura de diálogo democrático en Venezuela. Exigimos a Almagro y CIA que respeten y dejen de conspirar.— Evo Morales Ayma (@evoespueblo) September 13, 2017
The Bolivian president also called for unity of Latin America against foreign invasions by imperialist forces. “Today all the peoples of Latin America must unite to avoid invasion, now we are not the backyard of any great country,” he said.
The Venezuelan government announced on Tuesday that talks with the opposition will begin on Thursday.
A Venezuelan government delegation of Jorge Rodriguez, Delcy Rodriguez, and Roy Chaderton Matos will attend talks in the Dominican Republic with opposition leaders Timoteo Zambrano, Luis Florido, Manuel Rosales, Vicente Diaz, and Julio Borges.
Bolivian President Evo Morales has been a steadfast supporter of Venezuela as it faces attacks against its sovereignty. He has accused the United States of attempting to carry out an "economic coup" in the South American country.
Morales is planning on attending a "We Are All Venezuela" solidarity event against foreign intervention, to be held in Caracas this week.
