In the final declaration, they requested United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres and the United Nations System to help address the stalemate and continued human abuses in Venezuela.

The Group of Lima enlivened the Venezuelan opposition “to keep united, offering a common programmatic front, as an indispensable condition to sort out the Venezuelan crisis.”

A request to the United Nations Secretary General, António Guterres, to help address the standoff in Venezuela and a call for unity upon the Venezuelan political opposition are among the decisions made in a meeting of the Group of Lima.

The partnership of 12 nations seeks a solution to the current political, social and economic ordeal in Venezuela.

The final declaration, signed on Thursday in Toronto, Canada, also warns that the Member States will not acknowledge “the acts stemming from the National Constituent Assembly.” Concomitantly, they offered “full support” to the National Assembly, mostly composed of opposition deputies.

The meeting was attended by the ministers of Foreign Affairs of Argentina, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Panama, Paraguay, Peru and Saint Lucia, as well as by representatives from Brazil, Costa Rica, Guyana and Jamaica.

At the end of the meeting, the ministers of the Americas requested both the UN Secretary General and “the United Nations Systems to help address said crisis and continued human rights abuses” in Venezuela.

They strongly recommended the “urgent revision of the electoral system, including, particularly, the renewal of the National Electoral Council with members appointed by the National Assembly.”

The paper, released by the Peruvian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and totaling nine items, also emboldens the Venezuelan dissent “to keep united, offering a common programmatic front, as an indispensable condition to sort out the Venezuelan crisis,” Efe reported.
