Iran declares support for democratic process in Venezuela
Tehran, Aug 2, - The Islamic Republic of Iran supports democratic processes arisen from the Venezuelan people's desire for peaceful and legal resolution of current issues in this country, Foreign Ministry spokesman said.
Bahram Qasemi on Wednesday voiced hope that holding the recent election would help establish peace and stability in the country and become an introduction to national dialogue and consensus in the country.
He expressed opposition towards any type of foreign interference in Venezuela's internal affairs, and called the US' unilateral sanctions against Caracas unacceptable.
Respecting Venezuela sovereignty and independence within the framework of international law is necessary, the official added.
He noted that the world experience proves that manipulation of sanction tool as a leverage to pressure the independent states and nations to upset their confidence is a fruitless and inefficient approach.
