MONTEVIDEO /Uruguay/, February 8. /TASS/. The International Contact Group in Venezuela will assess its progress in settling the crisis in the republic after 90 days, EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said after the group’s first meeting in Montevideo on Thursday.
The EU high representative for foreign affairs and security policy told reporters that the previously announced 90-day period is not the timeframe for holding new presidential elections in Venezuela. “This is the time framework for the group to have a review of its work,” she said.
“We did not want to enter in an undetermined process, an open-ended process, so, when establishing this group we agreed to review and assess the results – if any – of our work by 90 days and decide the way forward,” the EU diplomat added. “The group can decide to finish its activities even earlier or to extend its activities if we see that there is a process in place.”.
