Foreign ministers and top representatives of 17 Latin American countries lambasted on Tuesday the breach of democracy in Venezuela and refused to recognize a National Constituent Assembly (ANC) championed by President Nicolás Maduro. Concomitantly, they vouched for a peaceful solution to the standoff in Venezuela.
In the Declaration of Lima, composed of 16 items, the diplomats expressed their “condemnation to the rupture of the democratic order in Venezuela” and their “decision not to recognize the Constituent Assembly” elected last July 30, including any acts that may arise from there, due to its “illegitimate character.”
The ANC, a supra-power, has plans to make laws for two years –beyond Maduro’s term in office- to restate the Constitution of 1999 and decision making with an immediate effect.
For the opposition, that refused to take part in the election of the ANC members, the ANC is set to perpetuate Maduro’s regime.
