The Vice-minister for Multilateral Affairs, Daniela Rodríguez, held a meeting on Monday with the Ambassador of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea to Venezuela, Ri Sung Gil, to review the working agenda between the two countries.
In this regard, Rodríguez said the meeting served “to review the challenges faced by those countries fighting for their independence, sovereignty, and the defense of the principles of the UN Charter such as the self-determination of the peoples and the defense of territorial integrity.”
Likewise, the two diplomats discussed “multilateral cooperation at international organizations such as the United Nations to strengthen the defense of our peoples’ interests despite some powers’ threats and attacks, support multilateralism and peaceful, harmonic relations,” said Rodríguez.
The meeting took place at the headquarters of the Venezuelan Foreign Ministry, in Caracas.
Venezuela and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea have maintained diplomatic relations since 1965. After the Bolivarian Revolution came to power in 1999, these relations have been strengthened in areas such as trade, education, politics and culture.
