US Senator sees an "opportunity of transition" in Venezuela
"Depending on what will happen in Venezuela, there could be a real opportunity of transition there"
"Depending on what will happen in Venezuela, there could be a real opportunity of transition there," said Kerry in his hearing of confirmation for his position, where he also expressed confidence in renewed US relations with Ecuador and Bolivia, Efe cited.
There is "an opportunity looking at our face" in US-Latin American relations, Kerry reckoned. The Senator also expects the United States to "improve and making a greater effort" in the region during his incumbency as the next Secretary of State.
As late as Tuesday, February 25, there was some visible response from Gabriela Ramírez's office. Representatives of the Office of the Ombudswoman would visit independent human rights watch groups to find what happened in connection with repression of protests. That day, they visited NGO Provea. The next day, they met with the attorneys of NGO Venezuelan Criminal Forum. They pursued specific data because -they argued- no claims of human rights violations of demonstrators had been filed with the Office of the Ombudswoman.
