Venezuela's National Assembly Deputy Edgar Zambrano, the leader of the parliamentary fraction of opposition party Acción Democrática (AD), has held a meeting with Apostolic Nuncio to Venezuela Monsignor Pietro Parolin as part of the number of meetings and talks in favor of the freedom of prisoners and the return of people involuntarily living in exile.
The deputy, who currently coordinates the team in charge of dealing with this issue, expressed his satisfaction at the outcome of the meeting with the Apostolic Nuncio, who pledged to pray for the success of the initiative aimed at the reconciliation of Venezuelans.
