The spokeswoman of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Asian giant, Hua Chunying, has defended Thursday the new measures of the Venezuelan president, Nicolás Maduro, to recover the national economy.
The diplomat has urged not to interfere in the internal affairs of Venezuela, while has expressed the willingness of Beijing to work to resolve the political crisis that crosses the country through dialogue between the parties involved.
The regional media have interpreted China’s announcement as an endorsement of Maduro’s second term in the face of the denial of the opposition sector and certain countries in the area that do not recognize the legitimacy of the new mandate of the Chavista leader.
The head of the National Constituent Assembly (ANC) of Venezuela, Diosdado Cabello, informed on Wednesday the decision of the National Justice to open a “formal investigation” to find out if the National Assembly has brake the law in its recent decisions.
