The GPP Foreign spokesperson, Valentina Martínez, reproaches the socialists for not supporting the complaint of the EU's high representative for Foreign Policy, Josep Borrell, affirming that said expulsion minimizes the democratic space in Venezuela • Reiterates its recognition of Juan Guaidó as interim president of Venezuela and expresses his affection, support and solidarity towards Venezuelans who continue to suffer political repression, economic collapse and the health crisis
The GPP's foreign spokesperson, Valentina Martínez, has accused the PSOE of bowing to the complicity that United Podemos maintains with the Maduro regime, after rejecting the PP's proposal for the following institutional statement in the Congress of Deputies on the expulsion of the ambassador of the European Union in Venezuela:
1. Expresses its strongest rejection of the expulsion of the EU Ambassador to Venezuela, Isabel Brilhante Pedrosa, decreed by the Venezuelan regime in response to the sanctions ordered by the EU against senior officials responsible for human rights violations, torture, repression politics and collaboration with organized crime.
2. Supports the complaint made by the EU's High Representative for Foreign Policy, Josep Borrell, in his statement on behalf of the Twenty-Seven affirming that “these decisions minimize the democratic space in the country and create additional obstacles to resolution of the deep political crisis in Venezuela ”.
3. Condemns the insults uttered by Nicolás Maduro Moros by calling the EU "supremacist", "colonialist" and "arrogance".
4. Considers both the accusation that the Spanish Embassy was involved in "Operation Gideon" and the threats of expulsion received by Jesús Silva, Spain's Ambassador to Venezuela, unacceptable. The Spanish Embassy in Caracas plays a fundamental role in the defense of the human rights of peaceful Venezuelan dissidents such as Leopoldo López, who under international law has received refuge in the Embassy as a guest, as his life is at risk.
5. Reiterates, like 57 other countries and numerous parliaments around the world, its recognition of Juan Guaidó as interim president of Venezuela and expresses his affection, support and solidarity towards Venezuelans for good, who, in a peaceful and democratic way, continue to suffer political repression, economic collapse and the health crisis within Venezuela, as well as towards the more than 6 million Venezuelans who, due to the same circumstances, have been forced to leave their country.
