Ex Colombian President Álvaro Uribe blasted on Wednesday the government of Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro for being "a promoter of violence" and required the democratic world to issue an opinion on the Venezuelan standoff.

"The Government of Venezuela has fueled violence (...), it has supplied weapons to Venezuelan gangs meant to mistreat political dissenters," he told Mexican radio station Radio Fórmula, Efe cited.

The situation in Venezuela "is as serious as or more serious than that of Syria." However, it seems that the international community does not mind despite "people are being killed just for expressing their political dissent," he asserted.

Uribe called upon the democratic world to require the release "at the earliest possible" of opposition leader Leopoldo López. On Tuesday, during a multitudinous congregation of government opponents in Caracas, López turned himself into Venezuelan authorities due to a bench warrant against him for the alleged crimes of murder and terrorism.

The Venezuelan government has held López liable for the clashes last week at the end of a student demonstration with a death toll of three and dozens of injured people.
