Regarding the meeting between Delcy Rodríguez and Gerardo Blyde in Brussels, Maduro stressed that the opposition “has not yet risen” from the dialogue table, but that “they intend to rise up to cause harm.”


President Nicolás Maduro assured that the countries that make up the European Union (EU) and the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (Celac) agreed that the international community —with emphasis on the United States— must withdraw the sanctions applied to Venezuela.

“There was already a consensus, in the European Union and Celac, that all sanctions against Venezuela be lifted. There is a consensus in the world. Those who defend sanctions are criminals,” he said during the presentation of a balance sheet of the first semester of the bricomiles for health.

In this way, Maduro reiterated what he expressed after the culmination of the EU-Celac summit, held on July 17 and 18, when he offered a balance to Telesur journalists stating that there was a consensus at the dialogue table regarding the lifting of sanctions.

At the summit meeting held in Brussels, the presidents Alberto Fernández (Argentina), Gustavo Petro (Colombia), Luiz Inácio Lula Da Silva (Brazil) and Emmanuel Macron (France) called for a meeting between Vice President Delcy Rodríguez and the delegate of the Unitary Table at the dialogue table, Gerardo Blyde, in order to resume talks between the opposition and Chavismo.

In this regard, Maduro stressed that the opposition “has not yet risen up”, but assured that they intend to do so to “cause harm” by resuming the anti-government protests that characterized the political conflict of 2017.

Regarding the elections, the Chavista leader insisted that the world demands free elections in Venezuela unnecessarily, since “29 free elections” have been held in the country, contrary to the multiple reports from national and international organizations that denounce the irregularities that have characterized the electoral processes in the last decade.

However, while celebrating the supposedly democratic character promulgated by Chavismo, he responded, to those calling for free elections, with the demand that the sanctions be withdrawn.

«Do you want free elections? We want sanction-free elections. The US government must lift all sanctions, without restrictions,” he exclaimed.
