Turkish Foreign Ministry opposes foreign intervention in Venezuela
Turkey opposes foreign interventions including coup attempt in Venezuela, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said.
Speaking on Turkey’s position on the Venezuelan crisis in a panel in Mexico City, Cavusoglu said: "We are against foreign intervention, resorting to undemocratic means, including coup attempts, imposing unilateral sanctions to replace legitimate governments."
Highlighting the importance of sovereignty and non-intervention in internal affairs, he said: "We are concerned over attempts to undermine the constitutional order and sovereignty of Venezuela.
"These attempts not only threaten stability, peace and security of Venezuela but also create a dangerous precedent and put the whole region in danger," Anadolu Agency cited Cavusoglu as saying.
According to the Turkish minister, a disaster in Venezuela would have "extremely grave" consequences for the whole region.
