Venezuelan authority and the opposition sign an agreement in Mexico City

The delegations of power and opposition in Venezuela after the signing of the agreement in Mexico.


The Venezuelan government and opposition signed on Saturday in Mexico City a "second partial agreement in the field of social protection" at the conclusion of negotiations closely monitored by the United States, France, Norway, Mexico and Colombia.

Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard said that representatives of President Nicolas Maduro and the opposition signed this agreement after negotiations that constitute "the hope of all Latin America" ​​and "a victory for politics."

The agreement may lead to a new easing of US sanctions imposed on the Caracas regime, according to analysts.

Indeed, on Saturday, the US government authorized the Chevron oil group to partially resume exploration activities in Venezuela.

The Treasury Department said the group could partially resume the activities of its subsidiary in Venezuela in partnership with the Venezuelan public company Petroleos, making sure that the latter "will not receive any revenue from oil sales by Chevron."

After being suspended for fifteen months, negotiations resumed after the intervention of Colombia and the United States.

French President Emmanuel Macron, who was concerned with the resumption of negotiations, praised the "excellent news" and offered his support for achieving "tangible results."

In turn, Spanish Foreign Minister Jose Manuel Paris suggested that Madrid play a role "if the Venezuelans want it."
