[email protected]Beware those who advocate for foreign intervention, brutal sanctions, and war on their own people. The US-backed @OAS_official is blatantly and unabashedly admitting that it doesn’t care about the human rights of the Venezuelan people. Where’s the outrage?? #HandsOffVenezuela
China’s Ambassador to Venezuela Li Baorong condemned the “hypocrisy and cruelty” of certain countries that are intensifying arbitrary sanctions against Venezuela instead of lifting their blockade.
“The comprehensive strategic partnership between China and Venezuela is of true gold. At this moment China and Venezuela are together,” he said.
Over 618 cooperation projects have been signed under the framework of a strategic association between both countries.
The Bolivarian government has also already signed agreements to participate in the clinical trial of Chinese COVID-19 vaccines. China has developed 5 vaccine candidates so far this year.
