Answer given by Vice-President Mogherini on behalf of the European Commission
Question reference: E-003525/2018

As stated in the Council Conclusions of May 2017: ‘Venezuela is a country with more than 600 000 European citizens adversely affected by the present situation and whose security and well-being is a matter of concern for the EU. In this respect, the EU reiterates its readiness to cooperate with the Venezuelan authorities to ensure assistance, protection and security of all European citizens in Venezuela.’

The EU has been using the different instruments(1) at its disposal to alleviate the most pressing needs of the population, including of the European citizens in Venezuela, by supporting the provision of medical assistance, food and nutrition to the most vulnerable groups, as well as protection and legal assistance to those leaving the country. At the same time the EU will remain engaged in a constant and continuous dialogue with national, regional and international actors in search of a political negotiated solution to the multidimensional crisis in the country.

(1)Humanitarian aid, Development Cooperation Instrument (DCI) thematic programmes, the European Instrument for Democracy and Human Rights (EIDHR) and Instrument contributing to Stability and Peace (IcSP).
