Venezuela: Our group demands a clarification from the EEAS and HR/VP Borrell

The Renew Europe Group in the European Parliament is asking for a plenary debate with the HR/VP Josep Borrell, following the European External Action Service’s mission of last week to Caracas, which raises a number of concerns regarding its content and mandate.

Dacian Cioloș (Co-President USR PLUS, Romania), President of Renew Europe Group, said:

“The European Parliament and a vast majority of the Member States of the European Union have recognised Mr. Juan Guaidó, as Venezuela’s legitimate interim President and therefore the main interlocutor for any official dialogues to be conducted between this Union and Venezuela. It is therefore not acceptable to conduct a diplomatic mission to Caracas on behalf of the EU and ignore this. Our group demands a clarification from the European External Action Service and HR/VP Borrell in regards to this mission. Renew Europe strongly asks the EEAS to act within the democratic principle that characterizes the EU and to respect the role of Mr. Guaidó as legitimate interim President of Venezuela.”
