CARICOM URGES PEACEFUL RESOLUTION TO “UNSATISFACTORY SITUATION” IN VENEZUELA

Venezuela must not be further tipped into chaos by external powers attempting to enforce some kind of rule not necessarily democratically entrenched.

Regional Heads of Government want all actors, internal and external, to avoid actions which will escalate an already explosive situation to the detriment of the people of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela and which could have far-reaching negative consequences for the wider region.

CARICOM Heads met by video conference from 3.30 yesterday afternoon for about seven hours.
