Venezuela condemns interventionist lobby of the so-called “Lima Cartel”
Venezuelan Vice President Delcy Rodriguez, sided by Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza, criticized the media lobby taken by the “Lima Cartel”, which promotes a plan of interference against the bolivarian nation, organized from the US Embassy.
“Today a failed technical meeting took place in Quito between the governments of the Lima Cartel, and they took decisions based on aspects that have nothing to do with the reality of voluntary migratory flow of the Venezuelan people”, Rodriguez stated from a media briefing at the VP office.
In this sense, The high ranking officer also informed that President Nicolas Maduro gave instructions to the Foreign Minister to formally protest, trough diplomatic channels, the realization of the Quito meeting because it’s only effect is to increase xenophobic campaign against Venezuelans living abroad.
Rodríguez pointed out that “every day more Venezuelans are going to our embassies and consulates to ask for their voluntary return, attending the call of President Maduro to come back to the land that saw them being born”, and she gave guarantees that the Venezuelan Govt will stand firm in the defense of every Venezuelan living abroad. “Do not let yourself be a victim of aggression, do not let them break the assurances that assist you,” Rodriguez said.
On the other side, she also reported about a fraternal and cooperative meeting with the UN representative, Jorge Baca, where she requested technical cooperation to preserve the human rights of each migrant abroad, so they can be assisted within the framework of regional and international agreements.
“Jorge Baca has highlighted the generosity of Venezuela, as a country with a high receptive migrant tradition, a generous attention to the migrant people and their integration into the Venezuelan society,” Rodriguez concluded.
