No interference in Venezuela

The Ministry of Foreign Relations (Mirex) has reiterated the conciliatory position of the Dominican government in regards to the political crisis in Venezuela, warning that the country “will never intervene in the internal affairs of a friendly nation”. Vargas said that the administration of President Danilo Medina would continue with this position until a solution is found.

The Ministry said the government’s position was sent in an official communication to the chargé d’affaires of the US Embassy in the Dominican Republic, Patrick Dunn. Dunn had published an article in Diario Libre on Saturday, 17 June 2017 requesting that the Dominican Republic take the side of democracy in the conflict.

Vargas responded to reporters’ questions from Cancún, Mexico where he is taking part in a meeting of the ministers of foreign affairs of the Organization of American States (OAS). The OAS consultation was suspended when the needed 23 votes to approve a resolution on the Venezuelan crisis were not achieved.

The Dominican Republic abstained from voting and proposed creating a commission to work closely with the sides in conflict. Minister Miguel Vargas maintained the Dominican government position that Venezuela resort to its own democratic mechanisms to solve the conflict.

An editorial in El Dia criticizes the position of the Dominican government calling it a showing of a lack of responsibility.
