Vice-minister Pimentel advocates for the defense of the principles of international law from the UN
In the framework of the working visit that the Foreign Minister of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Jorge Arreaza, made to the United Nations (UN) in New York, the Vice-minister for Africa of the People’s Power Ministry for Foreign Relations, Yuri Pimentel, has held important bilateral meetings with various representatives of countries across the African continent.
“Very important to denounce the situation of attack, aggression, blockade and coup that is trying to be implemented by force against our country currently”, said the diplomat after meeting with Abdoulaye Barro, alternate ambassador of the Republic of Senegal before the United Nations, and with Zacharie Serge Raoul Nyanid, Chargé d’Affaires of the Republic of Cameroon in the United States.
In each of the meetings, the Vice-minister for Africa explained the real situation of the South American country “in the face of the blockade that is also mediatic” and stressed the importance of defending the principles of international law, especially that of non-interference and that of respect for the sovereignty of States.
“These are the rules of the game with which the world understands itself and can continue advancing in peace towards the development of each of the nations (…) The balance has been very positive and we will continue in this battle for the truth of Venezuela against the attack of all kinds of imperialism and of the attempts to recolonize our countries; the African brothers are very alert with this situation”, he added.
The Venezuelan Vice-minister of Foreign Relations also met with the alternate ambassador of the Republic of Uganda to the UN, Ochen Andrew Odida and the alternate ambassador of the Union of the Comoros, Ahmed Abdallah.
