Saint Vincent and the Grenadines calls for constructive dialogue in Venezuela and non – interventionism
During his speech at the 73rd General Assembly of the United Nations Organization, the Prime Minister of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Ralph Gonsalves, said that among the principles of the UN is the equality of the countries, the non-intervention in the internal affairs, independence and the search for peace, this in reference to the recent statements of the president of the United States, Donald Trump, against Venezuela.
“Venezuela needs a mission of peace and reconciliation, it does not need more subversion, nor threats of armed interventions. A constructive dialogue between the contending parties and the characters involved is extremely necessary. The peoples of Latin America and the Caribbean on numerous occasions have reaffirmed that our region is a zone of peace”.
He also reiterated the need for multilateralism in the United Nations Organization to guarantee international peace and security.
“The attempt to return the genius of multilateralism and globalization to its respective bottle is a real madness. Walls can not replace bridges, insulation can not replace cooperation, and a closed fist can not replace a narrowing of hands”.
Gonsalves recalled the origin of the economic crisis that hit the world a decade ago, and the political consequences based on the rise of populism and reactionary positions.
In response, the Prime Minister called to jointly address global problems as the only way for a cordial coexistence.
