Moscow welcomes plans to continue consultations between the Venezuelan government and opposition in the Norwegian capital of Oslo later in the week, ONA reports citing TASS.
"Moscow welcomes the announcement about the continuation of contacts between the Venezuelan government and opposition being held in Oslo through Norway’s good services," the statement reads. "We call on all states involved in the Venezuela situation to support the launch of the political process in the form of talks between the country’s major forces, refraining from issuing ultimatums to Venezuela’s leadership," the Russian Foreign Ministry added.
"On our part, we are ready to make everything possible to facilitate dialogue if its participants consider it necessary," the statement notes. "At the same time, we would like to reiterate that we strongly reject any ideas that allow for a forceful intervention in the country’s domestic affairs," the Russian Foreign Ministry pointed out.
