friedenstaubeThe World Peace Council (WPC) denounces strongly the recent decision of a group of States within the “Organisation of American States (OAS)” to activate the Inter-American Reciprocal Assistance Treaty (TIAR) about Venezuela, as an instrument of interference in the sovereign affairs of countries since many decades.

The treaty was always a mechanism imposed by the USA with the aim of legitimizing military interventions in Latin America for ideological reasons as it has happened in Guatemala (1954), in Cuba (1961), in the Dominican Republic (1965), in Grenada (1983) and in Panama (1989).

The Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation (CPPC) repudiates the worsening of the illegal US blockade against the people of Venezuela and its Bolivarian Revolution, announced by the US/ Donald Trump Administration.

The CPPC defends the legitimate right of the peoples to sovereignly decide their path of development - a right enshrined in the UN Charter and International Law - a long-standing position that is all the more important to restate at a time when there is an increasing open and blatant threat, with pressure, blackmail, blockade and interference with the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, which aims to hit and worsen the living conditions of its people.

The People’s Power Minister for Tourism and Foreign Trade, Félix Plasencia, announced that they analyze the possibility of directly connecting, via commercial air, the capitals and other cities of Russia and Venezuela.

He explained that currently Russian visitors have to stop at other airports to reach Venezuela, but “soon we must have the possibility of making direct trips between capitals or major cities of Russia and Venezuela”.

During his speech this Thursday at the Biennial Panel on Unilateral Coercive Measures and Human Rights that took place at the UN-Geneva, in the framework of its 42nd session; Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza announced that this is part of the preparatory work that will lead the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) to “prepare a United Nations Declaration on the negative impact of unilateral coercive measures on the enjoyment of human rights and to the development of the attacked nations”.

In his speech he recalled that the UN Human Rights Council has given a mandate to the Special Rapporteur on Unilateral Coercive Measures, Idriss Jazairy, to identify and propose measures that guarantee the withdrawal of unilateral coercive measures to the peoples and States to which have been imposed.

The People’s Power Minister for Foreign Relations, Jorge Arreaza, said that the Venezuelan government, unlike Colombia, will demonstrate, with reliable and irrefutable evidence before the General Assembly of the United Nations Organization (UN), the manufacture of guerrilla acts in Colombian territory to assault Venezuela.

“We will bring irrefutable information to the UN, not absurd elucubrations like those presented by Colombia. We will demonstrate with locations, coordinates, photographs, testimonials, dates and names, ”wrote the Foreign Minister through his Twitter account @jarreaza.

On Tuesday, the Vice-minister for Multilateral Issues of the People’s Power for Foreign Relations, Alexander Yánez, on behalf of the Bolivarian Government ratified his unrestricted support to the Republic of Nicaragua after the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (UN), Michelle Bachelet, presented a report devoid of objectivity and impartiality about the reality in the Central American country.

The statements were made within the framework of the 42nd Session of the Human Rights Council of the international organization, in Geneva.

On 28 August 2019, Iván Márquez, a lead negotiator of the Peace Accord and former commander within the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia – People’s Army (FARC-EP), alongside Jesus Santrich and other ex-rebels, announced that they are rearming. Among the reasons behind this decision lie the lack of political commitment to implementing the Peace Accord, the rising number of FARC ex-combatants being killed, the conditions in which FARC combatants have had to live, ever increasing number of social leaders being killed and legal insecurity amongst other things. The Peace Accord between the FARC and the Colombian Government was signed in 2016 but was not respected by the latter. More than 150 ex-guerrillas and 600 social leaders were killed in the last three years.

In an interview with the international news agency EFE, the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Michelle Bachelet, negatively described the latest sanctions imposed by the US government on the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.

“The sanctions have been hard, too broad and if they harden even more, the only thing left to wait is unfortunately more migration, because poverty is going to be exacerbated”, she said.

Through the electronic channels of the Peopl’es Power Ministry for Foreign Relations, this Friday, the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela began implementing measures to guide and facilitate the processing of civil and consular documents to Venezuelans residing in the United States.

The Executive Vice-president of the Republic, Delcy Rodríguez, requested the Public Ministry (MP) to undertake a thorough investigation against the deputy to the National Assembly in contempt, Juan Guaidó, for being allegedly involved in plans to deliver the Venezuelan Essequibo to foreign interests.

“We hope that the Public Prosecutor’s Office and that the Attorney General’s Office act against the members of this transnational criminal organization”, she said in statements offered by the Vice-presidency in Caracas.
