“Venezuela demands the immediate elimination of the illegal coercive measures of the US as an essential part of the global food security plan that the world needs,” the ambassador and permanent representative of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela demanded this Friday in the United Nations Organization (UN), Samuel Mocada.
“We must save millions of lives. This is not the time to use hunger as a weapon of war,” the diplomat said on Twitter.
He warned that the looming famine would be the collateral damage of the decision to bring the world to its knees with an economic war.
“The answer is to free national productive capacities and strengthen international trade. The US orders the opposite: a huge blockade of Russia », he limited.
Moncada stated that coercive measures are a weapon of mass destruction. “The food crisis is imminent and it threatens Africa in the first place. The US wages economic war against 8 African countries promoting world famine.
Finally, Ambassador Monaca warned that a food crisis threatens the world. In the midst of covid-19, the US maintains economic suffocation against the peoples of more than 20 countries, a third of humanity, including Venezuela. “The US must cease its economic war immediately. Millions of lives are in danger.”
