We have noted the International Democrat Union (IDU) statement on Venezuela. We have been following the situation in Venezuela closely, including recent political, social and economic developments, some of which are referred to in the IDU statement. We encourage all parties in Venezuela to work together to reduce tensions and promote reconciliation for the benefit of all Venezuelans, both before and after the municipal elections on 8 December. The British Government continues to work with the Government and people of Venezuela to strengthen our relationship and deepen co-operation in areas of mutual interest.
