The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Delcy Rodríguez Gómez denounced a new attack of the Embassy of the United States against Venezuela, by denying visa to officials of the Ministry of People’s Power for Foreign Affairs, as well as senior officials of the Bolivarian Government to attend multilateral international events.
This action, disassociated from the International Law, once again ratifies how arrogantly and violently the US embassy assaults the International Laws and the Vienna Convention, since it is the host country of the head offices of the Organization of American States (OAS) and of the United Nations Organization (UN), therefore cannot refuse to grant visas but are obliged to make all efforts to ensure the participation of officials to the scheduled events in that nation.
It is not the first time that these irregularities are presented by the USA Embassy. “This is very serious, because it violates and undermines public international laws”, said Rodriguez, who expressed that tomorrow, the new Vice Minister for North America, Bernardo Álvarez, in the name of the Bolivarian Republic will submit a letter of formal protest to the US government.
The Head of the Bolivarian Diplomacy for Peace, quoted words of President Nicolas Maduro who pointed out to the US embassy, as a war machine against the constitutional and legitimate government of Venezuela. Nevertheless, Rodriguez reaffirmed that such aggression will not achieve to break the libertarian spirit of the Bolivarian Government.
“They only give visas to opponents who permanently conspire to overthrow the constitutional government, and deny visas that should legitimately been given, to Venezuelan government officials. We know that they are acting as a war machine against our country” she indicated.
