Spain urged Venezuela on Monday to respect human rights and freedom of expression in light of the demonstrations taking place across the South American country since February 12.

The statement was issued by Spanish Foreign Minister Manuel García-Margallo in a press release, DPA reported.

The Spanish official called for calm among government supporters and dissenters, said the end of confrontations should be a "priority." Some 10 people have died and hundreds have been injured in Venezuela amidst anti-government protests.

García-Margallo advocated dialogue between the parties and endorsed the appeals made by the European Union, the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (Celac), and the Union of South American Nations (Unasur) to overcome the crisis in Venezuela.
