Statements by the Spokesperson

The EU profoundly regrets the decision by the Venezuelan authorities to declare the EU Head of Delegation in the country as persona non grata. This will only lead to further international isolation of Venezuela.

We call for this decision to be reversed.

Venezuela will only overcome its ongoing crisis through negotiation and dialogue, to which the EU is fully committed but which this decision undermines directly.
