11:30 | Bogota (Colombia), Apr. 30.
Colombian Foreign Affairs Minister Carlos Holmes Trujillo has on Tuesday called for an urgent meeting of the Lima Group to discuss the situation in Venezuela
Reacting to the events on Twitter, Trujillo said: "I call on all the member countries of the Lima Group
so that today we continue our task of supporting the return of democracy and freedom to Venezuela and we define by mutual agreement an emergency meeting."
The Colombian minister added in another message that on instructions from President Ivan Duque he has sent communications to the member countries of the Lima Group to "convene an emergency meeting in order to continue supporting decisively the return of democracy and freedom to Venezuela."
The Lima Group, of which Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Guyana and Saint Lucia are members, was created in the Peruvian capital in August 2017 with the purpose of finding a solution to the crisis in Venezuela.
However, Mexico has stayed away from the initiative since the arrival of President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador.
