SUBJECT: STATEMENT OF THE GOVERNMENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF NAMIBIA ON THE POLITICAL DEVELOPMENTS IN THE BOLIVARIAN REPUBLIC OF VENEZUELA
The Government of the Republic of Namibia has been following with great concern the political developments in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela. The concern is that the political developments are arising from the unwarranted interference in the domestic affairs of Venezuela by foreign powers.

Namibia calls on the international community to allow the people of Venezuela to resolve their internal issues in an amicable and peaceful manner and within the confines of the Constitution of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela. We further call on the international community to be impartial and not to take sides in the dispute.
Namibians stand in solidarity with the People of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.
