The governments of Peru and nine countries of the Group of Lima reiterated the urgent call to the government of Venezuela to allow the establishment of a humanitarian channel that facilitates the immediate attention to Venezuelans in precarious states of health and malnutrition.
The countries that confirm the Group of Lima (Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Panama, Paraguay, and Peru) agreed that Venezuelans who are crossing the border need prompt attention.
“In the communication, they also condemned the ‘rupture of the constitutional order and the rule of law’ in Venezuela, reflected in the loss of democratic institutions and the lack of guarantees and political freedoms for citizens”, wrote El Peruano.
In addition, the Group of Lima pointed out that they do not recognize the legitimacy and credibility of the electoral process developed in that country, which ended on May 20, for not complying with international standards.
The group also called for the installation of “a true national dialogue” with all Venezuelan political actors, explained the aforementioned website.
Finally, they expressed their “deep consternation and alarm” for the serious violations of human rights in the country, which have been denounced before the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, such as extrajudicial executions, excessive use of force, arbitrary arrests, torture and ill-treatment, and lack of access to justice.
