“A victory of Venezuela’s truth,” said President Nicolás Maduro to describe Venezuela’s third participation in the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) of the UN Human Rights Council held on January 25.
The Venezuelan president pointed out that the presentation explained the real situation of human rights in Venezuela in an event where “the extremist opinions of the defeated coup-mongers from the United States, Colombia and some dissonant voices of European governments were present.”
“They have been isolated; they have nothing to say about Venezuela. We have resisted and we have defeated them in all arenas: Now we defeated them in the UN human rights system,” stressed Maduro, who congratulated the Venezuelan delegation headed by Vice-president Delcy Rodríguez.
When reiterating that “Venezuela triumphed with its truth,” the Venezuelan president thanked for the support of over 100 governments that recognized Venezuela’s progress in human rights and speak well about the South American nation.
President Maduro explained that only an “increasingly smaller” handful of countries are still trying to tarnish Venezuela’s reality with their lies.
In this regard, he urged Venezuelans “to reject those speak ill of our Homeland” and to act in defense of human rights.
“Stop speaking ill of Venezuela. Stop the hatred and xenophobia sown by the fascist right in Latina America against Venezuelans. Let’s join forces to defend the country,” he stressed.
At the Universal Periodic Review, Venezuela requested the UN to adopt corrective measures in favor of the countries affected by unilateral coercive measures.
