China Defends Venezuelan Elections, Condemns Foreign Interference

BEIJING – China claimed Venezuela’s Constituent Assembly elections had been conducted more or less smoothly on Sunday and urged other countries to stop interfering in the internal matters of the Latin American country.

In a statement late on Wednesday, China’s Foreign Ministry said China does not believe in interfering in the internal matters of other countries and advocates promotion of equality and respect among nations.

“China believes the Venezuelan government and its people have the ability to handle their internal affairs. A stable developing Venezuela is in the interest of all parties concerned,” the statement added.

China also hoped that the government and the opposition in Venezuela would be able to reach a consensus through peaceful dialogue and within the legal framework to protect the country’s stability and further socio-economic development.

China’s statement comes after the United States had slapped sanctions on President Nicolas Maduro’s government a day after the elections, while on Wednesday the European Union announced it did not recognize the Constituent Assembly.

Venezuela is one of China’s key trade partners and the main destination for Chinese investments in Latin America.
