Delcy Rodriguez and Rafael Ramirez held a meeting with the ambassadors of ALBA
At this meeting, they discussed the importance that Venezuela represents for the people of Latin America to be in front of one of the most important bodies of the United Nations, such as the Security Council, which is responsible for ensuring peace and security worldwide.
During the day, the Venezuelan delegates spoke with the ambassadors of the Community of American and Caribbean States (CELAC), reiterating the invitation to the foreign ministers of the aforementioned countries to accompany Venezuela during the Security Council’s Open Debate about the respect for the purposes and principles of the UN charter, which will take place on February 15.
During this visit to the United Nations, the Venezuelan delegation took part in a meeting with Jeffrey Feltman, Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs of the UN, regarding details about the Political Mission to Colombia, adopted unanimously by the Security Council on January 25th.
Moreover, on February 15, under the framework of Venezuela’s presidency in the Security Council, a symphony orchestra concert will be held at the headquarters of the United Nations, featuring the great conductor, Gustavo Dudamel.
"United Nations, now, in the 21st Century and for the third millennium, should focus all of its efforts, to the utmost, on moral, intellectual, scientific, social, cultural, economic and financial order, in the fight against the demons of hunger, poverty and death that scourge our planet."
"We will take with us to the UN a voice that repudiates terrorism and speaks out in favour of world peace; that respects the sovereignty of peoples and has the credit of the 181 countries who voted for us, not as an imperialist power that conquers peoples, but with our Bolivarian vision of peace and the right to exist."
"We must speak clearly and firmly on this point: during the United Nations’ 70 years of existence, the Palestinian people have faced a constant lack of respect for the most basic rights, and it is shameful that this organisation has known about the situation since it was founded and to date no political solution to the conflict has been reached"
"Venezuela will now, more than ever, be an active voice in the defence of the sovereign equality of nations; in particular of the inalienable rights of the peoples of the South to development and peace"
