Russia urges for direct dialogues to resolve Venezuela’s crisis

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Saturday a dialogue to resolve Venezuela's political crisis should have no preconditions, as he visited the small South American country of Suriname at the end of a multi-nation Latin American tour.

We, just like our Surinamese friends, are convinced that it can result through a direct dialogue between the government and opposition with no preconditions, and without any threats that we hear coming from various capitals, Lavrov said at a press conference following his meeting with Surinamese Foreign Minister Yldiz Pollack-Beighle in the capital Paramirabo. He called for support for Venezuelans' own efforts to address the crisis based on non-interference in the affairs of states.
