Unilateral Coercive Measures Violate the Charter of the United Nations
With regard to the policy of economic aggression promoted by the United States against the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, the Ambassador to the UN, Samuel Moncada, held a bilateral meeting with the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the Negative Impact of Unilateral Coercive Measures on Human Rights, Idriss Jazairy, in order to exchange points of view regarding this scourge.
During the meeting, Mr. Jazairy expressed that such actions endanger international peace and security, as well as preventing States from fully guaranteeing the development and well-being of their peoples, including the provision of goods and services of primary necessity and its possibilities to carry out transactions in the international financial system.
In this regard, he reiterated his rejection of such measures, in violation of international law and the Charter of the United Nations, and stressed the importance of multilateral diplomacy to reduce tensions and promote political dialogue.
Both diplomats agreed to keep in dialogue and close cooperation, in order to move towards the goal of repealing unilateral coercive measures, for the benefit of the peoples of the world.
