Vatican Invited to Mediate in Venezuela

Vatican Invited to Mediate in Venezuela

The Roman Catholic Church may soon join Ibero-American leaders seeking dialogue between Venezuela’s feuding government and opposition, the head of a regional bloc said on Thursday. “I think it’s good news this petition has been accepted by both sides. It will enrich us spiritually and, hopefully, politically,” said former Colombian president, Ernesto Samper, who heads the UNASUR bloc of South American states. With Venezuela enduring an unprecedented economic crisis, President Nicolas Maduro’s socialist government is locked in a bitter standoff with the Democratic Unity opposition coalition, Reuters reported. The opposition won control of the legislature in 2015 and is pushing for a recall referendum this year to try and remove Maduro, who they blame for Venezuela’s runaway inflation, product shortages and third year of recession.
