Beijing, June 5: Chinese President Xi Jinping has expressed willingness on Wednesday, saying Beijing will cooperate with the international community in order to play a “positive and constructive role” on Venezuela’s issues to get back economic-hit nation back to normal development as soon as possible.

Xi told a Russian state-run Rossiyskaya Gazeta newspaper and TASS news agency China strongly opposes any military intervention in Venezuelan internal affairs.

Chinese foreign ministry published a transcript ahead of his arrival in Moscow on Wednesday, in which Xi has stated, “China is willing to work with the international community to play a positive and constructive role on the Venezuela issue,” according to Reuters news reports.

Moreover, when asked Colombia if it was keen to provide its territories to the United States to initiate a military operation in Venezuela, if Washington decides, Colombian foreign minister Carlos Holmes Trujillo has on Wednesday said the nation does not back any military intervention in Venezuelan internal affairs.

Trujillo stated, “Colombia supports only political and diplomatic measures. Colombia does not support either the use of force or military interference. Only political and diplomatic measures.”

Embattled Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has proposed early elections for opposition Juan Guaido-led National Assembly in a bid to renew efforts to calm protesters. The president was quoted by Al-Jazeera news as saying, “We will legitimize the sole institution which has not been legitimized in the last five years.”

Recently, Maduro has said the second round of negotiations has been conducted with the opposition in the Norwegian capital, Oslo, noting secret dialogues have been underway for around a couple of months.

Maduro blames the widespread hunger and lack of medical supplies on the US and its opposition allies – but most independent economists say the recession began years before the sanctions, which at most accelerated the collapse.

Venezuela has the world’s largest proven oil reserves. But its oil output, once Latin America’s largest, has fallen faster in the past year than Iraq’s after the American invasion in 2003, according to data from the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries.
