Venezuela’s Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza held a meeting on Friday with representatives of the Congress of the Dominican Republic as part of the agenda followed by a Dominican delegation on an official visit to the South American country.
In the company of Vice-minister for Latin America, Rander Peña, the head of the Venezuelan diplomacy welcomed deputies Juan Dionisio Rodríguez, Franklin Martínez and Ramón María Ceballo, with whom he discussed the countries’ need for rapprochement for the benefit of their people.
The authorities and members of congress highlighted the importance of moving forward with the creation of groups of friendship among parliamentarians from the two countries.
In the context of the countries’ solidarity and sovereignty, the Dominican deputies rejected the unilateral coercive measures imposed on Venezuela.
Also, they seized the opportunity to praise the model implemented by the Bolivarian Government to avoid the propagation of COVID-19.
In this regard, they extolled the 7×7 system promoted by the Presidential Commission for the Control and Prevention of COVID-19, as well as the sanitary prevention policies adopted by the Bolivarian Government.
