Venezuela’s President, Nicolas Maduro, will address the UN General Assembly on Wednesday. Speaking in the General Assembly, he agreed with the “demand” that “all sanctions” against his country be lifted.
“We accept our demand against the Venezuelan economy and the lifting of all sanctions against the Venezuelan community by the governments of the United States and the European Union,” Maduro said in a statement.
In this sense, he thought his country was “on several occasions” a “severe attack on the various bodies of the United Nations and the General Assembly, a condemnation of harsh propaganda.” The first country to be “the elite that ruled America.”
The campaign was always hailed by the Venezuelan ruler as “the complicity of the elite who run organizations in Europe and elsewhere.”
“They wanted to instruct the international bodies of international law to justify the harsh propaganda and criminal attacks against the Venezuelan people,” he stressed.
In his view, Venezuela is experiencing “a permanent and systematic occupation through economic, financial and oil sanctions” which he described as “terrible”.
He explained that these sanctions were an attack on the “right to economic freedom” and “economic rights and guarantees that all the peoples of the world should enjoy.”
This, according to the head of state, is “a serious attack on the right of our country to buy what it needs and on the right of our country to produce, especially the great oil and mining wealth.”
Financial accounts are being harassed, we have seized gold from the legal international reserves of the Venezuelan Central Bank in London, we have smuggled and we have seized billions of dollars in bank accounts in the United States, Europe and beyond, ”he said.
In addition, Maduro “bans Venezuelan oil and mining companies from trading their products and from opening bank accounts in the world, making payments, charging and preventing trade transactions as thought in international trade.”
Optionally ask for support for the conversation
The Venezuelan leader sought the full support of the United Nations for the “negotiation process” that began with the opposition in Mexico last August.
The Venezuelan executive and the opposition began in Mexico on August 13, and the third round of the dialogue process, with Russia and the Netherlands as comrades and Norway as a mediator, will take place from the 24th to the 27th of this month.
“I am grateful to United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres for his support for the Mexican dialogue process, and I urge the United Nations to extend all support to move the dialogue process in Mexico towards new regional agreements. It is a global agreement to strengthen Venezuela’s peace, sovereignty and integrated prosperity,” he said.
Maduro also recalled that this year they have established several dialogue tables with the business, trade union and social sectors and “with all political sectors”.
These tables were set up by a special chamber commission on the instructions of the Speaker of the National Assembly (AN, Parliament), George Rodriguez, Maduro.
Rodriguez is also chairing a government committee on talks with opposition parties in Mexico.
As part of this process, the “most radical opposition parties in Venezuela that sought to overthrow the coup” have returned to the “political, constitutional and electoral path.”
