The Government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela informs the national and international community that it has received notification from the Sovereign National Constituent Assembly, through which this great delegated body, which has given its original power to the Venezuelan people, has been established.

The Government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela informs the national and international community that it has received a notification from the Sovereign National Constituent Assembly through which this great plenipotentiary body, vested with the original authority of the Venezuelan people, has decided, in accordance with the systematic laws of intervention in the internal affairs of Venezuela, to declare the Ambassador of the Republic persona non grata. Brazilian Federation Carlos Pereira and Canadian Chargé d'Affaires Craig Kowalik met on December 23, 2017.

In this regard, the National Constituent Assembly sent letters to the embassies of Brazil and Canada, whose governments complied with this measure, even before receiving written notification, and thus decided to apply reciprocity against Venezuelan diplomatic officials in the aforementioned countries.

The Government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela considers as a good sign the clear compliance with this measure by the Governments of Brazil and Canada, which have finally given signs of recognition and respect to Venezuelan institutions, in particular the delegated nature of the sovereign national authority, the Constituent Assembly.

Likewise, the Bolivarian Government of Venezuela reiterates that it has always respected the internal affairs of Brazil and Canada, a behavior that all Venezuelan diplomats have exercised with discipline. In this sense, it assesses the reciprocal measures implemented by both countries as unjustified. The Government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela expresses its unwavering submission to the decisions of the Sovereign National Constituent Assembly as an expression of the original power of the Venezuelan people.
