The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, European Union and Cooperation of Spain confirmed this Sunday the arrival of the Presidential Commissioner of the Center of Government of Venezuela, Leopoldo López, in Madrid.
The department also recalled that his arrival came after he had been a guest at the residence of the Spanish Embassy in Caracas since April 30th, 2019.
“The decision to leave the Embassy is a personal and voluntary one,” reads the press release.
The same document stated that Spain accused the regime of violating the Vienna Convention after arresting its personnel and later searching the homes of those working in the diplomatic headquarters.
“Acts that imply a breach of the obligations contained in the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations,” the Foreign Ministry said.
Likewise, Spain reiterated its support to a peaceful solution to the political crisis that Venezuela is living.
“Its conviction that the multidimensional crisis that Venezuela is going through requires a negotiated solution, led by the Venezuelans themselves, that allows the celebration of presidential and parliamentary elections with full democratic guarantees”, the document subscribed.
This Saturday, the EFE news agency reported that Nicolás Maduro’s regime kidnapped the private guard of the Spanish Embassy, José Jerjes Neira, and López’s domestic employee, Nubia Campos.
