United Nations, Sep 24 (Prensa Latina) During his speech at the 74th session of the UN General Assembly, Venezuelan Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza assured that his country has the right to build its own political system, which does not imitate any other.
‘We have our challenges, but it is a model created by our people,’ he emphasized as part of a meeting to defend the UN Charter, a document signed on June 26, 1945, at the end of the United Nations Conference on International Organization, which entered into force on October 24 of the same year.
Arreaza reiterated that Venezuela’s commitment has always been to peace.
Since his arrival in New York (United States) on Monday to join the UN General Assembly, the Venezuelan minister has held bilateral meetings with authorities from countries such as Portugal and Equatorial Guinea.
He also signed a Memorandum of Understanding for future collaboration with the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Michelle Bachelet.
As part of the document, the possibility of an agreement that would allow the establishment of a UN office in Venezuela was evaluated.
The memorandum includes the strengthening of national mechanisms for the protection of human rights and access to justice, while facilitating possible visits by UN special rapporteurs over the next two years.
The details of these activities will be agreed in a work plan to be defined between the government of the South American nation and the UN Human Rights Office within 30 days of signature.
