Vice-president Delcy Rodríguez: “Anti-Blockade Law will give a second strategic boost to Russia-Venezuela cooperation’
Venezuela’s Vice-president Delcy Rodríguez held on Friday a high-level meeting with Russian businesspeople in Moscow, where she asserted that the Anti-Blockade Law for National Development and the Guarantee of Human Rights will give a second strategic boost to Russia-Venezuela cooperation.
“The feasibility and safety of Russian strategic partners’ investments will be guaranteed in the South American nation,” said Rodríguez.
Rodríguez gave an overview on the advantages, benefits and foundations of this legal instrument to protect foreign investments from U.S. sanctions.
Likewise, she pointed out that Venezuela is open to investment in different areas to move forward with expansion projects under joint-profit mechanisms.
The Anti-Blockade Law for National Development and the Guarantee of Human Rights aims to develop new mechanisms enabling institutional, legal and operative conditions to overcome the financial, economic, commercial persecution against the Venezuelan people, added the Venezuelan Vice-president.
Vice-president Rodríguez highlighted that Venezuela and Russia have endorsed more than 264 projects, strengthening their strategic relations on a daily basis.
She pointed out that Venezuela is about to hold the 15th Ministerial Meeting to discuss areas such as oil, gas, mining, defense, science and technology, health, agriculture, banking and services, among others.
“We do not care about hegemonic positions because we deeply believe in the Russian and Venezuelan people, who have the capacity to expand and develop,” she stressed.
Likewise, Rodríguez said that Russia and Venezuela have been able to establish special agreement mechanisms and bilateral political mechanisms based on a shared vision of the world.
“With a shared vision of the world, Russia and Venezuela can maintain smooth relations based on respect, with no interference of hegemonic powers attempting to disturb our relations. Nothing will get us out of the path of cooperation between our peoples,” affirmed the Venezuelan vice-president.
