Yoel del Valle Perez Marcano

The Embassy of the Republic of Venezuela held a press conference this morning to update the local media on the current state of affairs of that country, in the wake of an attempt by the opposition to ouster President Nicolas Maduro from political office.  The effort to destabilize the government and cause social upheaval through violence has resulted in the deaths of twenty-nine people in Venezuela.  Today, Yoel del Valle Perez Marcano, spoke on the PetroCaribe initiative and whether Belize would be affected by the insurgence in Caracas.


Yoel del Valle Perez Marcano, Venezuelan Ambassador

“All the time that may be deemed necessary the government of the President Maduro will always be willing and open to dialogue, with all the sectors of the country. Inclusive controlling of manifestation, probably we could have controlled these actions from many, many years ago. Bit it has not been possible because in a responsible manner, we have preferred to detain ourselves…we want to dialogue, we have preferred dialogue that violence than using the army in the country. From this point of view the assistance those who use violence on the streets on sectors of the country may continue for some time. In 2002 that process began on the 6ht of December and ended mid-March and we resisted. And we think that is the route, dialogue, you have to adhere to the law.”


The protests are spreading to other areas in Venezuela as the military clashes with students as well as residents.

    Its ironical, they give out financial poverty aleviation left right and center in the hope of buying out international support when in a lot of impoverished slums in Venezuela people are starving. I mean, we do appreciate the help but hey, stop being such a farce.
