2016-02-01

The Permanent Representative of Venezuela to the United Nations, Rafael Ramirez, said that one of the main challenges of the presidency of Venezuela in the Security Council is contributing to the political dialogue in Syria.
 
"We support the efforts of the Special Envoy of the Secretary General, Staffan De Mistura, and the Syrian government, which is very important and is a key player in the conflict, who has said that they are willing to negotiate without preconditions," said Ramirez.
 
On this issue, Ramirez said that within the United Nations Security Council they have unanimous support for the resolution of the Syrian crisis through political means, based on dialogue between the parties.
 
Principle of non-interference by third parties
 
The Venezuelan diplomat said that one of the fundamental factors of the performance of Venezuela in the Security Council has been respect for state sovereignty and non-interference of third parties in the internal affairs of each nation. "What has happened in the Middle East is a terrible example of what happens when these principles are violated," he added.
