Likewise, the official indicated the problems in the Venezuelan territory must be solved by its own population and said he is against any military intervention. 

"We hope this will be solved soon, so Venezuelans' suffering can go away. We hope a solution will be found in the short term, so our sister Republic can follow the path of democracy (…)," the statesman expressed.

His remarks were made during a Muni-Executive meeting in Cajamarca region

On Monday, the Lima Group member states that convened in Ottawa, Canada, released a declaration reiterating their support for Juan Guaido as the Interim President of Venezuela and embracing the self-proclaimed leader's request to join this multilateral body.
