Foreign Minister: The absolute commitment of President Maduro helps us pave the road for peace in Colombia
From the Yellow House Antonio José de Sucre in Caracas, the Foreign Minister of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela affirmed that from Venezuela, and inspired by the historic guidelines of the Supreme Commander Hugo Chávez, “the peace of our brotherly country Colombia is being forged today, with the common origins of our father, the Liberator Simón Bolívar".
Ecuador will host the dialogue between the Government of Colombia and ELN; while Venezuela, Ecuador, Chile, Brazil and Cuba will participate in the working sessions.
In this context, the representative of the Bolivarian Diplomacy of Peace stated that in Venezuela “we are completely committed to peace in Colombia by taking a historic step that will bring happiness to Colombia, Venezuela, the region, and the international community”.
The minister Delcy Rodríguez recalled the commitment of the South American Leader, Hugo Chávez, for achieving peace in Colombia; a responsibility which remains relevant thanks to the initiatives of the Venezuelan President, Nicolás Maduro, through his peaceful foreign policy.
"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"
