    They said in for the acts of violence that have left at least three dead, 60 wounded and 69 arrested, it is pertinent that the Venezuelan authorities investigate and establish responsibilities for the victims and injured.

    They also expressed hope that Venezuela can find ways to solve their issues using dialogue and understanding.

    “Costa Rica is confident that the Venezuelans, without any interference, know how to strengthen channels of harmony among their people and overcome these pressing times,” they said.

    On Thursday, the Costa Rican president and 1987 Nobel Peace Prize winner, Oscar Arias, criticized the “indifference” of Latin American governments and regional organizations on the situation of Venezuela and urged them to react.

    “I’ve been critical in the past and now of the indifference with which democratic governments see what is happening in countries like Venezuela where there is a blatant disregard for human rights,” Arias told reporters after meeting with a resident of the Venezuelan community in Costa Rica.
