Comment by the Information and Press Department on the cancellation of a new round of talks between the government of Venezuela and the opposition on August 8, 2019

The Foreign Ministry expresses deep regret over the cancellation of the round of talks between the government of Venezuela and the opposition that was to take place in Barbados. Regardless of who initiated this decision, the main reason for the breakdown in the negotiating process is obviously Washington’s irresponsible policy regarding Venezuela and its legitimate authorities. The methods adopted by the United States to exert economic pressure, alongside other actions in stark violation of international law, are unacceptable. We firmly condemn the outright interference by the United States in the affairs of a sovereign state and Russia’s strategic partner.

The Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela and China share the same principles of brotherhood, cooperation and mutual benefit, in order to consolidate a fruitful relationship in favor of the peoples of both nations, said on Thursday the President of the Republic, Nicolás Maduro.

From the Simón Bolívar Hall of the Miraflores Palace, he stressed that the South American and Asian nations for two decades base their cooperation ties on respect and with a futuristic approach that imperial countries such as the United States (USA) do not understand, product of the hegemonic vision that they promote.

The United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Michelle Bachelet, expressed her deep concern about the “potentially severe” impact of the new unilateral coercive measures imposed by the United States government on the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, contemplated in the Executive order signed in recent days by President Donald Trump.

“I am deeply concerned about the potentially severe impact on the human rights of the people of Venezuela of the new set of unilateral sanctions imposed by the United States this week. The sanctions are extremely broad and do not contain sufficient measures to mitigate their impact on the most vulnerable sectors of the population”, she said.

The president of the Republic, Nicolás Maduro, invited the Venezuelan people, social organizations and State institutions on Wednesday to join the initiative called by the Great Patriotic Pole to hold a world day of protest against the US president, Donald Trump, next August 10.

“I join the call of the Great Patriotic Pole, the Bolivarian Congress of the Peoples and I make it mine, a great world day of protest against Donald Trump on Saturday, August 10. I join the convocation of the Venezuelan people, a thousand forms of protest in the world, on social networks and may the truth be known”, he said during the ceremony in commemoration of the Bicentennial of the Battle of Boyacá.

The surrendered policy of the Colombian government, guided by Iván Duque, was criticized on Wednesday by the Venezuelan Head of State, Nicolás Maduro, during the commemoration of the Bicentennial of the Battle of Boyacá.

From the National Pantheon, in the city of Caracas, he outlined that while the pro-imperialist, oligarchic, surrendered government of Colombia celebrates Boyacá by receiving the commander of the Southern Command, Craig Faller, and rendering him honors as head of State, I know that in the depths of the the people of Colombia, they admire the Bolivarian Revolution and the tribute we pay here to Bolivar, who gave freedom and independence to New Granada”.

Canciller Arreaza: nos toca una vez más estar al frente por la libertad de Nuestra AméricaThe Foreign Minister of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Jorge Arreaza, during the mobilization of this Wednesday in commemoration of the 200 years of the Battle of Boyacá, said that “we are still in the street facing the empires; then it was the Spanish one, and today is American. We have, once again, to be at the forefront, in the epicenter, leading the battle for the freedom of our America”.

He stressed that as two centuries ago, when Venezuelan and New Granadian lancers with Bolivar in front, they freed what is now Colombia, the struggle with the great Bolivarian project remains as the definitive objective of a great Republic that gets this continent together, from Mexico to Argentina.

Venezuela denounced the retention of a ship in the Panama Canal loaded with 25 thousand tons of soy cake for food production in the national territory, a fact sponsored by the criminal blockade imposed by the United States government.

This new aggression that violates the fundamental right to food of the Venezuelan people was denounced by the Executive Vice-president of the Republic, Delcy Rodríguez, through her account on the social network Twitter, @DrodriguezVen.

Specifically, the diplomat referred to the Secretary General of the agency, António Guterres, and the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Michelle Bachelet, whose report released last July by her Office, was questioned by the Venezuelan government which submitted 70 observations.

He also insisted that the Human Rights Council of the United Nations (UN), must act against these threats to peace and international security pronounced by the ruling elite of Washington, “we will insist on each of the Permanent and non-permanent members of the Security Council to comply with the Charter of the United Nations, they have that obligation (…) The United States should be immediately neutralized by the multilateral system, by the United Nations to avoid a tragedy”.
