CARACAS – The European Union is refusing to recognize Venezuela’s new assembly tasked with rewriting the constitution, saying it could undermine the country’s institutions.

EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini says the election of the assembly amid violence over the weekend “has durably worsened the crisis in Venezuela.”

She says it raises doubts about whether the body can represent all parts of Venezuelan society.

Mogherini added Wednesday that the EU and its member countries stand ready to “gradually step up their response in case democratic principles are further undermined.”

No mention was made of any possible sanctions.
