Venezuela advocates before the UN for the consolidation of a culture of peace in the world
The Vice-minister for North America of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Carlos Ron, participated this Thursday in the annual “Culture of Peace” debate held at the UN General Assembly, where he reaffirmed the importance of consolidating a culture of peace, based on the promotion of political understanding and constructive dialogue between member states, on the basis of mutual respect, and in strict adherence to the purposes and principles enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations.
In this regard, Vice-minister Ron also stressed the importance of preserving future generations from the scourge of war to achieve lasting peace.
“That is why, without fear of being wrong, we affirm before this General Assembly that a world of peace will only be possible when social justice becomes a reality and equal access to health, food, housing, and education, culture, social security, science and sports, and other fundamental rights, based on national and international cooperation commitments, be guaranteed”, said the Venezuelan diplomat.
During the debate, Vice-minister Carlos Ron also reiterated the complaint against the United States government for the illegal imposition of unilateral coercive measures against Venezuela, for it constitutes a flagrant violation of international law, the Charter of the United Nations and human rights of more than a third of humanity.
Finally, the Venezuelan diplomat reaffirmed the nation’s commitment to the promotion of a Culture of Peace as an intrinsic value of Venezuelan democratic model that recognizes peace as a right and a duty, so the human being achieve its great aspirations.
