From the residence of the Secretary General of the United Nations Organization (UN), in New York, the Foreign Minister of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Jorge Arreaza, held an important meeting with António Guterres.
It should be noted that both sides agreed to deepen the cooperation between Venezuela and the UN.
In this sense, the Head of the Bolivarian Diplomacy highlighted the importance of multilateralism as a space to overcome the problems that attack the Venezuelan economy.
