The representative of the Venezuelan Government thanked the invitation, saying that it is essential to deepen the current situation of the South American country, in order to provide accurate information on unilateral coercive measures, the blockade and the steps that the Bolivarian Government develops to face the media attack. The occasion was conducive to introduce Venezuelan union leaders Hernán Brito and Marco Tulio Díaz, members of the National Constituent Assembly.
