Peru has invited China, Russia, Cuba, Bolivia, Turkey and dozens of other countries to Lima on Aug. 6 to discuss the political crisis in Venezuela, Peru's foreign minister said on Wednesday.

Nestor Popolizio said the idea was to gather countries that are in some way connected to the crisis in Venezuela in hopes of encouraging dialogue and building support for new elections. Popolizio added that representatives of the government of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro and the opposition were not invited. "We don't want to polarize the meeting," Popolizio told a news conference.
