United Nations, Jul 17 (Prensa Latina) The Venezuelan Foreign Minister, Jorge Arreaza, has reiterated this Wednesday to the UN Secretary General, Antonio Guterres, the will of his government for peace and offered details on the dialogue process developed in Norway.
In a meeting on Wednesday, Arreaza gave an update to the head of the United Nations on the most recent events in Venezuela, a country under aggression and blockade, he stressed.
As he told the UN-accredited press after that meeting, it is always good that multilateralism offers a response to the unilateral positions that try to choke my nation.
The Foreign Minister expressed the gratitude of the Caracas government and the UN to Norway for facilitating the dialogue between the Venezuelan sides and stressed the need for the international community to respect these negotiations for as long as they last.
I hope this process will lead us to a coexistence political agreement, but if we want to progress, it is necessary that there be a truce on the part of those who attack Venezuela, he said regarding the aggressive positions of the United States and the European Union.
While we advocate negotiations, he added, some are insistently trying to meddle in Venezuela’s affairs: they should put arrogance aside and put an end to their efforts to twist the current course.
Arreaza’s meeting with Guterres is one of his activities at the UN High Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development, which ends this week.
