The government on Tuesday stated its official position on the unfolding political crisis in Venezuela in which it has said that the internal problems of a country should be resolved within its constitutional parameters.
“In line with its principled position, Nepal believes that internal political problems of a country need to be resolved within its constitutional parameters in a democratic manner, free from external interferences,” read the statement released by Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Calling for resolution of differences through peaceful means, the statement also said that Venezuela people have the ultimate authority to take a decision on the country’s political and constitutional course.
Earlier on Friday, NCP had issued a statement bearing recognition to democratically elected constitutional President Nicolas Maduro. The statement had said that the recognition of self-declared acting president Juan Guaido by US and other states is ‘unacceptable intrusion’ in internal affairs and an attempt of ‘imperialist coup’.
The statement followed the stand taken by China, Russia and a number of other countries who have criticized the role of the US and its allies on Venezuela’s political crisis.
The letter signed by NCP’s Co-chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal, in absence of the party’s other Chairman KP Sharma Oli, also the Prime Minister, had triggered a debate over whether it is the official position of the Oli administration.
Some leaders from the ruling party said that the statement was drafted at the behest of a “strong lobby group” from Venezuela that requested Nepal’s ruling party to support its democratically elected leader.
