.- The Secretary General of the Bolivian Bishops’ Conference, Bishop Jesus Juarez, called on both the government of Evo Morales and opposition leaders to seek sincere dialogue rather than confrontation to solve the country’s problems.

“We said we have to always look for ways of understanding and not confrontation, and understanding comes through honest, sincere and responsible dialogue with a desire to solve the problem,” the bishop said.

He stressed that everyone involved should put forth their best effort to bring peace to the country.  Entrenched positions prevent agreements from being reached, he added, and each side “must see what good things exist in order to find the solution together.”

Opposition leaders and the government should “sit down with an open heart and attentive ears to listen: what good things does the government bring to this dialogue, what good things does the opposition bring to this dialogue, in order to find a true solution together,” the bishop said.
