The deputies of the National Assembly (AN) praised the participation of Venezuela in the European Union – Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (EU-Celac) Summit, in which the country was represented by the Executive Vice President of the Republic, Delcy Rodríguez.
In an intervention during the ordinary session this Tuesday, Deputy Roy Daza highlighted the pride of Venezuelans for the participation of the vice president, who “today is raising the Venezuelan flag on the stage of the CELAC European Union” that was held in Brussels, Belgium.
He also highlighted that the Venezuelan delegation raised the discussion of the economic and commercial blockade against the nation, and stressed that the scenario also served “to talk about cooperation, to talk about the search for agreements, to talk about the necessary political dialogue with precisely those who have supported the sanctions against Venezuela”.
Daza remarked that the Summit meant recognition of the Venezuelan government, and “that the extreme right and the right of Europe could not impose a war agenda on Celac, and we are champions precisely because we have come to dialogue, to cooperate, and above all to fight for the peace that Europe so needs and the world so needs”.
Legislator Óscar Ronderos also celebrated Venezuela’s participation in the EU-Celac Summit, stressing the importance of occupying all international stages to carry “our truth with our heads held high.”
“It is not true that we are at war, it is not true that we are starving, it is not true that people are fleeing here for political persecution,” he said.
In this regard, he reiterated the need to “bring that truth to all parts of the world, and the European Union and CELAC are suitable scenarios for that.”
