Reiterate call in the UN to depoliticize “humanitarian aid” to Venezuela
The spokesman of the Secretary General of the UN, Stéphane Dujarric, reiterated today with respect to the situation in Venezuela that all humanitarian aid must be depoliticized and independent of other objectives.
Thus he expressed before questions of the press accredited in the United Nations about what happens on the border between Colombia and Venezuela, where the United States presses to enter a cargo supposedly for humanitarian purposes.
Of course, said the spokesman, the UN is worried about the outcome of these events and pleads for a peaceful political solution to be found.
Dujarric also reiterated the call to the multilateral organization to avoid any kind of escalation.
The Secretary General of the UN, António Guterres, advocates for a political solution in Venezuela and for the parties to dialogue in pursuit of an understanding, he said.
The head of the United Nations met with the new ambassador of Mexico to the UN, Juan Ramón de la Fuente, and spoke about the initiatives presented by Latin American and Caribbean countries in order to promote that dialogue, the spokesperson said.
The Secretary General expressed his support and welcomed such actions, he said.
The Bolivian government, like the UN, advocates for a dialogue that helps to ease tensions and find a political solution, but the Venezuelan opposition rejected the negotiations outright, following the policy of the United States government.
Washington and its allies try to ignore President Nicolás Maduro – elected by majority in the elections of the previous year – and seek to intervene in Venezuela under the pretext of alleged humanitarian aid.
This is how the authorities in Caracas and countries like Russia, Cuba, Turkey, China, Nicaragua, Bolivia, Syria, Iran and members of the Caribbean Community, among others, warn.
