Lastly, the President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, receives this Monday the credentials of the Ambassador of the Republic of Argentina, Oscar Laborde, an action that represents the will to restore alliances of mutual respect, self-determination and non-interference between both nations.

The accreditation of the Argentine diplomat acquires a special nuance of importance, due to the fact that the bilateral relations between Argentina and Venezuela were strained during the mandate of the liberal Mauricio Macri (2015-2019), who recognized the figure of parallel governments in the South American nation and I also support interventionist formulas that promoted the economic and financial attack against Venezuela.

In this thorny journey of the ties between the two countries, it is also said that the Argentine Army prepared for an invasion of Venezuela during the last year in office of then President Mauricio Macri (year 2019).

The operation against Venezuela thus supported the plans of the United States to overthrow the Venezuelan president, Nicolás Maduro.

It should be noted that these military exercises were carried out at a time when the former president of the United States, Donald Trump, was planning ways to remove the Venezuelan dignitary, including trade sanctions that had the support of several South American nations, including Argentina macrista .

With the mandate of Alberto Fernández that began on December 10, 2019, these tensions dissipated, but the positions of the president remained lukewarm, who once came to declare about the situation of human rights in Venezuela and He pointed out that this “problem was disappearing in the Caribbean nation that has been experiencing a serious unprecedented humanitarian, political and social crisis for years under the dictatorship of Nicolás Maduro.”

This made relations between Argentina and Venezuela delicate, since the president of the southern nation supported the UN reports on alleged human rights abuses, in the mandate of President Maduro.

In April 2022, with a friendly tone, Fernández himself maintained that Argentina wanted to “regain its full diplomatic ties with Venezuela”, considering that it meant an important step.

At present, fully restoring alliances of mutual respect, self-determination and non-interference will be sustained largely on the basis of the work carried out by the new ambassador Oscar Laborde in Venezuela.

From 2008 to 2015, Laborde was Coordinator of the Consultative Council of Civil Society of the Foreign Ministry and Special Representative for Economic Integration and Social Participation of the Argentine Foreign Ministry with the rank of Ambassador.

In 2014, he served as director of the Institute for Latin American Studies (IDEAL). He was dedicated to academic research on issues related to the region.
