Vice-president Rodriguez: Persecution and US sanctions prevent quality of life of the Venezuelan
The Executive Vice-president of the Republic, Delcy Rodríguez, indicated that the unilateral coercive measures imposed by the United States (US) government cause suffering to the people of Venezuela, because they prevent the arrival of medicines and food to the country, among other goods and necessary services to guarantee quality of life to the Venezuelan.
During an interview on the “José Vicente Hoy” program, Rodríguez explained that with these actions the US violates the principles that regulate the relations between countries, of sovereignty, independence and non-interference, applying a set of economic measures that affect the lives of its citizens of the Homeland of Bolívar and Chávez.
“The persecution of the US reaches such a level that they take the time to call businessmen, ship owners so that they do not transport medicines and food to Venezuela”, denounced the Vice-president.
Violations of International Law
Sanctions, blockages and any other similar measure are forms of intervention, Rodriguez said; and in turn expressed that through economic aggression they intend to coerce governments of the world for certain political and economic purposes, which in her consideration is in violation of International Public Law and International Humanitarian Law.
Given this, she stressed that the President of the Republic, Nicolás Maduro, in the historical responsibility he has to protect the entire Venezuelan population, as well as the integrity and sovereignty of the Republic, was encouraged “to go to the multilateral justice system to request that this type of violations of International Law be stopped, which is undoubtedly affecting the entire Bolivarian people.
