The Vice President of Colombia, Marta Lucía Ramírez, described as unacceptable the creation of a Contact Group, which will be integrated by countries in Europe and Latin America, which will supposedly work for the realization of new elections.
Through her Twitter account, the Colombian official said: “Unacceptable that Spain and Portugal pass over the majority position of Latin American democracies. The famous 90-day Contact Group only gives air to a criminal dictatorship, without taking into account the risk of the region. What would happen if we acted like this with Europe?”
On Thursday, January 31, the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Federica Mogherini, announced the organization of this group that will create conditions for the realization of elections.
Inaceptable que España y Portugal pasen por encima de posición mayoritaria de democracias de America Latina. El famoso Grupo de Contacto a 90 días sólo dá aire a una dictadura criminal sin tener en cuenta el riesgo para la región. Que tal que nosotros actuaramos así con Europa?
