Foreign Minister Delcy Rodríguez met UN Chef de Cabinet
One of the issues discussed during the meeting was the promotion of the initiative “International Plan of Solidarity for Haiti” started by President Nicolas Maduro in order to address the damages caused by Hurrican Matthew in the brotherly country.
Last October, the Foreign Minister Rodríguez and the Prime Minister of Haiti, Mr. Enex Jean-Charles, held meetings at the United Nations with different personalities to brief about the humanitarian situation faced by the people of Haiti after this onslaught of nature.
The aforementioned initiative has the support of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM), currently under Venezuela’s Chairmanship, as well as G-77 and China, and CARICOM.
"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"
