The European Union stands with the people of Venezuela and is at the forefront of the international mobilisation to solve the crisis in the country and support a political, democratic, peaceful and Venezuelan-owned solution.

The multidimensional crisis in Venezuela requires an urgent political solution. This can only be achieved through a peaceful, democratic and Venezuelan-owned process leading to free and fair presidential elections.

The Venezuelan citizens deserve full democracy in all its dimensions, from the rule of law to the respect of human rights, from the separation of powers to the respect for the constitutional mandate of the country’s institutions, starting from the democratically elected National Assembly.
