The National Constituent Assembly in Venezuela will analyze the economic situation in the country, as it has already approved measures to respect and protect the legality of the state's institution including the opposition-led National Assembly.

The legislative body will meet with the National Economic Council which includes 15 strategic sectors of the economy, and will also discuss political measures to strengthen a diversified productive economic model, away from an economy based on exporting oil.

The first vice president of the ANC Aristobulo Isturiz said this will help the country fight "the economic war that Venezuela is facing."

The constituents also approved Tuesday during their second session a decree of coexistence with the state's public powers, reiterating that they will not replace the National Assembly that is currently led by the opposition.

"This is a decree that reflects the goodwill of this assembly that has a very clear message of cordiality, coexistence, and understanding among Venezuelans," Delcy Rodriguez, president of the ANC said.

Among the other agreements reached by the ANC is the support to the Commission of Truth, Justice and Peace to investigate the deaths during the violent protests in the country led by the right-wing opposition.

The ANC also approved an agreement rejecting the unilateral measures imposed by the U.S. government against Venezuela and reflected its support for President Nicolas Maduro against foreign threats.

The final agreement was in support of the Bolivarian National Armed Forces in its defense of the Venezuelan people after the terrorist attack carried out Sunday against Fort Paramacay in the central state of Carabobo.

"This is a decree that reflects the goodwill of this assembly that has a very clear message of cordiality, coexistence, and understanding among Venezuelans," Delcy Rodriguez, president of the ANC said.
