VATICAN CITY (AP) — A delegation representing Venezuelan Opposition Leader Juan Guaid met yesterday with Vatican officials as the Holy See weighs a request from socialist President Nichols Maduro to intervene in the country’s political crisis.

Officials from the Secretariat of State expressed Pope Francis’ sympathy to all Venezuelans who are suffering, the Vatican said. Spokesman Alessandro Gisotti said “the grave concern was underlined that a just and peaceful solution be urgently sought to overcome the crisis, respecting human rights and seeking the good of all of the inhabitants of the country and avoiding bloodshed”.

The Vatican didn’t say who participated, but the delegation was photographed with Monsignor Edgar Pea Parra, the Venezuelan-born “substitute,” or deputy secretary of state. His boss is Cardinal Pietro Parolin, a Venezuela expert stemming from his years as the Vatican’s ambassador to Caracas.

Maduro has asked the Vatican to help launch talks. Francis has said both sides must request external mediation and expressed a willingness to sound out Guaido’s camp.

The Venezuelan delegation later met with the Italian interior and foreign ministers. Italy’s populist government, which splits power between the right-wing League and the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement, has not joined other countries in lining up to back Guaido.

The Italian Foreign Ministry identified the delegation members as Francisco Sucre, president of the foreign affairs commission of the anti-Maduro National Assembly; former Caracas Mayor Antonio Ledezm, and Rodrigo Diamanti, an activist whom the ministry identified as Guaido’s representative.

The wife of Ledezma, Mitzy De Ledezma, told reporters the message from the delegation to the Italians was clear: “That they will support our current president, who is Juan Guiado, a democratic president that God willing will bring the next Venezuela toward a democratic transition under the flag of democracy, which is what we mainly need in our country.”
