Capriles meets Shannon, says "there's no dialogue" in Venezuela

Caracas, June 22 (efe_epa).- The two-time presidential candidate Henrique Capriles said that he met with the U.S. Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs, Thomas Shannon, who arrived Tuesday in Caracas, and he told Shannon that "there is no dialogue" in the Caribbean country.

"I told Mr. Thomas Shannon, with whom I had the opportunity to talk to a couple of hours ago, that in Venezuela, there's no process of any dialogue," said Capriles during his program "Pregunta Capriles," broadcasted via the Periscope website.

"Maduro wants to deflate concerns of our sister countries and the governments of Latin America. Since the Latin American governments are aware that the social unrest in Venezuela, for which Venezuela has no solution, will also have an impact on their countries," Capriles, also the governor of Miranda state, added.

Capriles told Shannon that the government of Nicolas Maduro invited three international mediators with a delegation from the opposition and one from the ruling party to meet separately in the Dominican Republic recently.

The leader was referring to the international commission made up of the former head of the Spanish government Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero and the former presidents Leonel Fernandez and Martin Torrijos, of the Dominican Republic and Panama, respectively.

Capriles said he noticed that Rodriguez Zapatero did not mention the process of the recall referendum that the opposition wants to activate in Venezuela during his participation at the Permanent Council of the Organization of American States (OAS).

"The government does not allow the country to hold dialogue process. We cannot waste any more time, because Venezuelans are in an emergency situation," Capriles concluded.
