Venezuela Military Parades with Maduro to show Unity. "Only the ones who fight have a right to be. You will never invade my country. Listen to us small gringo. We are ready. With weapons in our hands … we are waiting for you" the personnel shouted during the parade. The march was more than a mile long.
Meanwhile, Maduro said on Friday that talks in Norway this week with representatives of Venezuela's government and the opposition sought to "build a peaceful agenda" for the crisis-stricken South American country.
Venezuela's Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza hailed Norway's mediation efforts saying, ‘We Have to Reject War, Bet on Dialogue’ and stressed that "knowing how to listen, agree and comply is required."
On the other hand, there is news that the United States is weighing options to limit Russia and Cuba from meddling in Venezuela, perceived as a stumbling block in the pursuit of a solution to the political crisis in the country, a senior State Department official told the Miami Herald.
On Friday, China has called to strengthen efforts between the Venezuela government and opposition to achieve a peaceful resolution to the situation there, by emphasizing its position of non-meddling in the internal affairs of the South American nation.
While Jorge Arreaza has said on Saturday that Caracas is willing to engage in dialogue with the US administration on the basis of mutual respect.
