During an act, the head of state recalled that “today the negotiating table for peace between the Colombian state, represented by the government of President Gustavo Petro, and the guerrillas of The National Liberation Army (ELN) have sat down to negotiate a peace agreement.”

“From Venezuela we tell you, with all our people, all the support of the people of Venezuela for the peace negotiations,” the president emphasized.



In addition, he assured that this dialogue represents a message of hope “for a Latin America, a Caribbean territory of peace, as defined by CELAC (Community of Latin American and Caribbean States) at the time in Havana.”

“That is why I congratulate the Colombian youth present because they are going to have peace. Youth of Colombia, the time for peace has arrived,” stressed the Venezuelan president.

Likewise, he reaffirmed Venezuela’s willingness to contribute to the total peace of the neighboring country.

Previously, the delegations of the Colombian government and the ELN held an act to reinstate the peace talks, in compliance with the agenda agreed last October.
