Amidst the ongoing crisis in the country, the Venezuelan government is struggling to find a way to have absolute power and suppress the rebellion of the opposition. The country is in the state of predicament since January 10, deteriorating the condition of people since then. The disagreement between the parties on legitimate rule over the country has caused crisis of the several basic amenities like medicine, food supplies, and water supply across the country.
However, after months of crisis and foreign intervention by various countries, finally a much needed intervention to resolve the issues of common people has been initiated. The Norwegian authorities have called for the representatives of Nicolas Maduro, Venezuelan President, and Juan Guaidó, opposition leader, to find a common ground and end the political debacle engulfing the country.
The continuous and everlasting approach of either side to form a stable Venezuelan government has not only led to the crisis of basic human amenities, but also worsened the economic stability and tourism in the country. The once populated and famed local tourist destination, the island of Margarita, has recorded a drop in tourist visits.
According to Luis Rodríguez, head of the Tourism Corporation of Nueva Esparta State (Corpotur), the island once witnessed daily flights ranging from the count of 20-22 from various cities of the country. But now, only seven arrives, out of which mostly are from Maiquetía.
Norway’s intervention might finally help end the crisis that the Venezuelan Government is experiencing. While Information Minister Jorge Rodríguez will be taking part in the intervention from the government led by Maduro, Stalin González, one of the members of the opposition, will be representing Guaido.
During the broadcast on Wednesday, Maduro avoided making a comment on the upcoming talks, yet he asserted that Rodríguez is on a “very important” mission. With this intervention, the speculations of the US using armed forces to end the crisis might also dampen.
Earlier Guaido called for a military uprising on April 30, which did not receive much support. Guaido posted a video stating the beginning of the final phase against the Maduro and his government, and asked the masses and armed forces to join him in overthrowing Maduro from the power. The call led to skirmishes, which caused injury to 69 people.
Wednesday also saw the US suspending every flight between the US and Venezuela amidst the ever-increasing political and economic crisis in the country. Maduro criticized the move by the US, claiming the suspension an attack on freedom of movement.
The invention by Norway came amidst European nations preparing to send delegates to help resolve the crisis. The International Contact Group contains eight European countries, the European Union and four Latin American countries.
While the Venezuelan Government continues its struggle of political crisis, a neutral foreign intervention might bring a halt in the current scenario. This intervention might also help the country to revive its economy, politics, and tourism as well.
