Spain, Germany ask Venezuelan gov't to think it over

Spanish Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, Alfonso Dastis, lobbied on Monday at the European Union (EU) for the possibility of imposing specific, individualized and selective sanctions on Venezuelan government authorities in the event of establishing the National Constituent Assembly (ANC).

The Venezuelan government plans to hold an election for the ANC next July 30.

During her opening remarks at the EU Council of Foreign Ministers held in Brussels, Federica Mogherini, High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy / Vice-President of the Commission, referred to the standoff in Venezuela, where more than seven million Venezuelans voiced in a referendum last Sunday, July 16, disagreement with the ANC.

For its part, the German government strongly recommended Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro to think it over.

“In our view, the plebiscite clearly expressed the country will. While the result is not legally binding, it should make President Maduro rethink his call for a Constituent Assembly,” said Maria Adebahr, the deputy spokesperson of the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

During a rank-and-file survey called by the Venezuelan opposition leadership on the sidelines of the Venezuelan Electoral Power, over seven million people spoke up against the establishment of a ANC pursued by Maduro to change the Constitution.
