The formation of a National Emergency Government to address and end the complex humanitarian emergency in Venezuela, which has caused the migration of more than five million Venezuelans, would be the solution to curb this situation, as proposed by the President of the country and re-elected to the National Assembly, Juan Guaidó.
“The only way to solve this crisis (in reference to migration) is by installing a National Emergency Government. Of the five (global) humanitarian tragedies, which end up in refugees, the largest on the planet are Southern Sudan, Afghanistan, Syria, Myanmar, countries in conflict; at war. Venezuela is unique, in this continent”.
The remarks were made by Mr Guaidó during the debate on the “Draft Agreement in commemoration of World Refugee Day,” which took place in Parliament’s online session on Tuesday June 23rd of this year.
He said that in Venezuela “the war that took place was that of the dictatorship against the citizen”, against development opportunities by expropriating companies, for example. He highlighted the work that MEPs have done to make visible the Venezuelan migration crisis that is now recognized throughout the world.
“In Venezuela we do not hear the bombs as in countries at war, but we do see the destruction. They destroyed freedom of expression, to cite one example. Today we raise our voices for the Venezuelan migrants, not only so that they return, but also to resolve the conflict.
The Acting President recalled that a few weeks ago was held the Donors’ Conference in Europe, sponsored by the European Union and the Government of the Kingdom of Spain, where funds were raised to be destined to countries receiving Venezuelan migrants to attend to their needs, which are becoming greater in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. He once again thanked for the gesture, but reiterated that it is not enough. Therefore, it is urgent to put an end to the crisis in Venezuela through the formation of a National Emergency Government so that, among other things, Venezuelans can return home.
