Venezuela promotes momentum of the Group of Countries in Defense of the UN Charter
Through a message on his Twitter account, the People’s Power Minister for Foreign Relations, Jorge Arreaza, called on Monday to strongly push the Group of Countries in Defense of the UN Charter, in the face of the daily violation of its principles by the United States government and its allies.
Ante el escenario mundial, debemos impulsar con fuerza el Grupo de Países en Defensa de la Carta de la ONU, creado en 2019 ante la agresión a Venezuela. EEUU y sus aliados violan a diario los principios de La Carta, poniendo en riesgo permanente la Paz y seguridad internacionales https://t.co/uO4hpeZGsu

Last Friday, the permanent representative of Venezuela before the United Nations Organization, Samuel Moncada, reaffirmed in New York the commitment of the Bolivarian Government with the founding letter of the multilateral mechanism and with the norms of international law, while reiterating the support for the Group of Friends in Defense of the UN Charter.
During the High Level Open Debate of the Security Council on the “Defense of the United Nations Charter for the Maintenance of International Peace and Security”, the Venezuelan delegation stressed that the document on which the creation of the Organization in 1945 is a code of conduct for all its 193 member states.
The Group of Countries in Defense of the UN Charter was formed on February 14, 2019 by a set of member states that share the concern about the need to maintain respect for the principles of the fundamental Charter that governs the behavior of the international community.
The coalition seeks to defend respect for the principle of equal rights and self-determination of peoples, and the promotion of mechanisms for the peaceful settlement of international disputes and never jeopardize international peace and security, among other purposes.
