The Union of South American Nations has called for an end to the unrest in Venezuela, after violent protests left another two people dead. Venezuela has been gripped by almost a month of demonstrations that have killed a total of 20 people.
Venezuelan Minister of Foreign Affairs Elias Jaua announced that the Union of South American Nations (Unasur) will meet on Tuesday in Chile to discuss what Caracas has branded as “fascist violence” in Venezuela. Jaua said the meeting will analyze the causes and consequences of “this new attack on Venezuelan peace and democracy.”
“We are ready to work together with Unasur on a dialogue between Venezuelans to achieve political stability, and eradicate the threat that these violent groups represent when they attack the Venezuelan democratic institution and the democratic values of South America,” said Jaua in a statement on Saturday.
