The Ambassador of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela to the United Nations (UN), Samuel Moncada, rejected the inclusion of the topic “The Responsibility to Protect and Prevent Genocide, War Crimes, Ethnic Cleansing and Crimes against Humanity”, on the agenda of the UN General Assembly, because it is an instrument that violates the sovereignty of States.

“As a nation, we have been the target of attacks by the same colonial powers that perverted the notion of responsibility to protect in order to loot our national assets and apply economic terrorism against our people”, said the Venezuelan diplomat from the UN General Assembly.

This Thursday, the Eastern Republic of Uruguay withdrew itself from the 49th General Assembly of the Organization of American States (OAS) that is being held in Medellin, Colombia, after ignoring the representative of Juan Guaidó – deputy of the National Assembly in contempt – sent to the meeting.

“Venezuela left the OAS on April 27, after two years since its denunciation made in 2017, to the Organization’s Charter. Therefore, Uruguay understood that the presence of a delegation supposedly representing the government of a country that has withdrawn itself from the Organization – and that is not recognized by half of the OAS membership – lacks legitimacy, violates its legal regulations and sets a very grave precedent for the future of the Organization, seriously undermining the credibility of the Organization’s General Secretariat”, said a statement issued this afternoon by the Uruguayan Foreign Ministry.

This Wednesday, the president of the National Commission for Refugees (Conare), Juan Carlos Alemán, revealed that “from this July first will start the thirty days trial period, for a new card, which will serve as identification for Refugees in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela”, these statements were issued during the commemoration of World Refugee Day.

“This new form of document is part of the progress in international human rights that is developed in the country and will be delivered to 50 families”, said the President of Conare.

The Foreign Minister of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Jorge Arreaza, held a bilateral meeting on Wednesday in Madrid with the Minister of Foreign Relations, European Union and Cooperation of Spain, Josep Borrell.

During the meeting, the diplomats evaluated the existing relations between the two countries and shared the interest to advance along the route of dialogue as the only way to guarantee the prosperity of Venezuela.

On behalf of the 120 member states of the Movement of Non-Aligned Countries (Mnoal), the ambassador of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela to the United Nations (UN), Samuel Moncada, made a call to the Government of the United States of America to assume its responsibility to accelerate the process that will allow the Puerto Rican people to fully exercise their inalienable right to self-determination and independence.

During the meeting of the UN Committee on Decolonization, held on Monday, the Permanent Representative of Venezuela reaffirmed that the Puerto Rican people have the right to freedom and called for the consideration of the question of Puerto Rico in all its aspects.

On June 23 we learned about the regrettable statements made by the Colombian national leader, Iván Duque, who, referring to the political situation in our country, pointed out that it is necessary to consolidate the rupture of the FANB, instead of a military solution of a foreign character. This new act of stolidity, is typical from those who, in their blindness and despair, refuse to understand the failures of each attempt to disintegrate the homeland which gave them freedom.

unoCaracas, 21 June 2019

Good evening, and thank you for coming.

This has been a short, but crucial, visit for me – the first-ever official mission by any UN High Commissioner for Human Rights to Venezuela. I will leave Caracas shortly but I leave behind a presence in the country – again, a first in Venezuela for the UN Human Rights Office. We have reached an agreement with the Government for a small team of human rights officers to be based here, with the mandate to provide technical assistance and advice, as well as – importantly – to continue to monitor the human rights situation in Venezuela.

This Friday, at night, the High Commissioner of the United Nations Organization for Human Rights, Michelle Bachelet, ended her official visit to the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, after having fulfilled a broad agenda of work, from the past June 19.

On her arrival at Simón Bolívar International Airport, in Maiquetía, the High Commissioner thanked the invitation made by the Head of State, Nicolás Maduro, as well as his cooperation and commitment with the Office, including the tour of his technical team last March.

The visit of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Michelle Bachelet, is a transcendent step to strengthen the rapprochement and cooperative relations between the Venezuelan State and the multilateral organization, assured the President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduros Moros.

These statements were offered by the Head of State after culminating the meeting with the High Commissioner who, for three days fulfilled an important work agenda by holding meetings with the representatives of the public powers who exposed the consequences of the unilateral coercive measures imposed by the government of United States through the modalities of financial and economic blockade.

On Thursday, June 20, the last Plenary Meeting of the Conference on Disarmament (CD) was held, under the Venezuelan presidency.

Ambassador Jorge Valero at UN-Geneva presented the final report to the CD giving an account of his management. The Bolivarian diplomat said that the CD, under the leadership of Venezuela, has advanced towards substantive negotiations on legally binding instruments, which contribute to the building of a world in which nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction disappear, which constitute the main threat to the peace of the nations.

The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Michelle Bachelet, arrived on Wednesday in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela after the invitation made by the head of State, Nicolás Maduro Moros, last November, with the aim of showing the devastating effects of the economic and financial blockade imposed by the United States on the Venezuelan economy.

The President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro Moros, during his speech in the framework of the second anniversary of the Great Mission Chamba Juvenil, welcomed the High Commissioner, and also former President of the Republic of Chile, Michelle Bachelet, to the country, who arrived at the Maiquetía International Airport, in the state of La Guaira, after 6pm.
