BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:00 P.M.) – The U.S.-backed Lima Group that consists of several Latin American nations has rejected military intervention in order to solve the Venezuelan conflict.

The Lima Group “rejects any threat or course of action that implies a military intervention in Venezuela,” said an official statement issued by foreign ministers of the bloc after a gathering in Santiago.

The members of the group support a peaceful solution “led by Venezuelans themselves,” the statement added.

This announcement came as Canada announced new sanctions against 41 members of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro’s government.

Canada is reportedly holding the Maduro government “responsible for the deterioration of the situation” in the South American country.

Chilean Foreign Minister Roberto Ampuero said that the group’s policy “is very clear,” which seeks “a democratic, political and non-violent solution” to Venezuela’s crisis.

The Lima Group, comprising 13 Latin American countries and Canada, was formed in Lima, Peru in 2017 with a proclaimed aim to settle Venezuela’s domestic crisis. The group agreed to hold its next meeting in Guatemala at an unspecified time.

What did I explained about there was no military intervention on the table 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 Trump is doing a Kim Jong Un… Good ‘ole carrot+stick method 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 The real goal is to get over the pre US oil companies funded botched military coup attempt on Chavez and resume business.
