Venezuelans return from Peru through the Plan Vuelta a la Patria is hindered again
The day of the Plan Vuelta a la Patria scheduled for this Saturday from the Republic of Peru was suspended due to the repeated and intentional impediment of the government and companies of that country to refuel these flights, denounced the Foreign Minister of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Jorge Arreaza.
The People’s Power Minister for Foreign Relations, through his Twitter account @jaarreaza, demanded respect for the human rights of Venezuelans who wish to return to their homeland.
Denunciamos que debido al reiterado e intencional obstáculo del Gobierno y empresas del Perú para abastecer de combustible al vuelo humanitario del #PlanVueltaALaPatria nos vimos obligados a suspenderlo. Exigimos respeto a los DDHH de los venezolanos que desean volver a su Patria pic.twitter.com/JsU3jphzSi

Meanwhile, the president of Conviasa (Consorcio Venezolano de Industrias Aeronáuticas y Servicios Aéreos SA), Ramón Velásquez, disseminated – also on Twitter – the communication of the Peruvian part through which he alleges that the measure obeys the “new and older” Unilateral coercive measures imposed on Venezuela from the United States.
Queda visible ante los ojos del mundo, que mientras un Gobierno socialista realiza esfuerzo por el bienestar del pueblo, existen otros mandatos que no estan interesados que esta misión se cumpla. #MáximaProtecciónSocial pic.twitter.com/VfZjsCiHsr

This is not the first time that a flight of the Plan Vuelta a la Patria from the Inca nation is suspended for this reason.
Last May, the return of the nationals from Peru was irretrievably suspended due to the refusal of the multinational energy company Repsol to supply fuel to Conviasa’s airplanes, even though it had previously been paid by the Venezuelan government.
The Plan Vuelta a la Patria has also been hindered by the governments of Colombia and Argentina, which have refused to grant the necessary permits for its execution.
