To quell the wave of protests and violence, Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has called for a national constituent assembly.
Venezuelan Foreign Minister Delcy Rodriguez on Saturday reiterated calls for supporting peace in the South American country and criticized ongoing violent right-wing protests, which have since reached the 50-day mark.

Rodriguez, speaking at a community event promoting Venezuela’s constituent assembly, said President Nicolas Maduro’s proposal would establish dialogue to resolve differences and create a state of peace and stability.
“We want no one to stay in their house because we have an essential task before us, which is the defense of Venezuela,” she said.
