Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro on Sunday unveiled a crime-fighting strategy, which includes the imminent launch of a national pacification plan and a state institute to aid vulnerable youth.

Addressing a large gathering in celebration of the Movement for Peace and Life, Maduro urged his political opponents to back his government's plan to reduce violent crimes in one of South America's most violence-wracked nations.

"It's true that violent crime is generated by poverty and inequality," said Maduro, "we have been building equality, eradicating poverty, (and promoting) education."

Announcing that the plan will be launched on Feb. 8, he called on all sectors to get involved by offering anti-crime proposals.

The president also announced the creation of a national institute for the treatment of victims of violent crime.

Through such an institute, "we are going to guarantee that they (the victims) will continue to work, to study. To the families who have left children behind, we will give scholarships (and) moral, spiritual, psychological support," said Maduro.

The institute will also aid troubled families, many single-parent households, in which the children are vulnerable to criminal influences, said Maduro.
