MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russia will not be participating in international talks on the political crisis in Venezuela due to be held in Peru next month, its Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday.

It said it declined the invitation as one was not extended to representatives of the government of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, among other concerns.

Peru invited China, Russia, Cuba, the United States and dozens of other countries earlier this month to discuss the situation in Venezuela in Lima on Aug. 6.
