Venezuelan opposition figures who are engaged in a European tour to win support to apply pressure on the Venezuelan government have met with French President Emmanuel Macron on Monday at the Elysee presidential palace in Paris.

Macron promises to the US-backed opposition that France will lead European dialogue towards “adopting measures targeting those responsible for this situation,” referring to the crisis in the Latin American country.

Earlier in the day, Venezuelan Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza said he had filed complaints with the ambassadors of France and three other European countries planning to meet with the Venezuelan opposition figures during their European tour for interference in the nation’s internal affairs, PressTV reported.

“These types of expressions are absurd and offensive to the functioning of Venezuelan democracy and its institutions,” Arreaza said.
