بهرام قاسمی

Tehran (ISNA) – Iranian foreign ministry spokesman Bahram Ghasemi stressed that Iran would support the continuation of negotiations between the Venezuelan government and the opponents to settle the dispute there.

"Iran is against any kind of foreign meddling in the internal affairs of Venezuela," Qasemi noted in reaction to the recent developments in that country.

“Iran attaches importance to the security and stability in the Latin American region, the friendly country of Venezuela in particular,” Qasemi stressed.

The senior diplomat went on to say that continuation of unrest in Venezuela will be of benefit to no sides, and can put the increasing pressure on the Venezuelan people.

“Iran’s principled policy is support for Venezuela’s legitimate government coming from the people's votes,” Qasemi concluded after calling for respecting the sovereignty and independence of Caracas.
