The deputy to the National Assembly for the Popular Will party and president of the Foreign Policy Commission, Francisco Sucre, reported that they will raise the case of the dissident Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (Farc) before the Organization of American States (OAS) and the United Nations Organization (UN), stating that this is a global problem that affects the entire continent.
“We will support the report that the president of Colombia, Iván Duque, will take before the United Nations Assembly that will be held on September 23, where the relationship of Nicolas Maduro’s regime with the dissident FARC and other paramilitary groups is evidenced. We are witnesses that the ELN is in Venezuela, its existence in Venezuelan territory is public domain. During a trip to Guyana we were requisitioned by an alcabala (check point) belonging to this group. They are not only on the border of the country, but also in the center of Venezuela.”
The parliamentarian said that from the National Assembly and the Foreign Policy Commission they will continue working in concert with the presidential commissioner for international affairs, Julio Borges, in order to increase the world’s support for Venezuela.
“All the work that is being done internationally is in favor of the cessation of usurpation. Since the Second World War, there was no such a large international coalition in support for freedom and rights of a country. The regime wanted to make a version of North Korea in Latin America, but thanks to the support received in the region they failed and today the world is attentive to everything that happens in our nation.”
Finally, in relation to the Inter-American Treaty of Reciprocal Assistance (Tiar), Sucre informed that the agreement must continue with a series of international protocols yet to be activated. He said that the application of the treaty goes hand in hand with other strategies that aim to achieve political change in the country and allow Venezuelans to participate in a free and balanced electoral process.
