UN: Venezuela 'fighting for its second independence' from US - UN envoy

Соединённые штаты, New York City
авг. 06, 2019 в 21:58 GMT +00:00 · Опубликовано

Venezuelan Ambassador to the United Nations Samuel Moncada accused the United States of implementing a new kind of "brazen colonialism", calling the country racist and white supremacist and saying Venezuela was "fighting for our second independence" during a press conference at the UN headquarters in New York on Tuesday.

The briefing came a day after US President Donald Trump announced that the US would expand its existing sanctions against Venezuela with an executive order banning Americans from doing business with President Nicolas Maduro's government.

"They've abandoned their humanitarian pretences, they've abandoned the pretence that they're fighting for freedom, this is now, clearly, a plan of colonial domination, of direct invasion and direct control by the United States on Venezuela and we're fighting for our second independence as a nation," Moncada said.

"This is the kind of new brazen colonialism in the 21st century, which is fuelled by racism, white supremacism, white nationalism, violence and hate."

He said Venezuela had written a letter to the UN Security Council asking for them "to impede the violation of international law by a permanent member" and asking for a public condemnation by UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres.

On Monday night, in a letter to Congress, Trump said, "I have determined that it is necessary to block the property of the Government of Venezuela in light of the continued usurpation of power by the illegitimate Nicolas Maduro regime, as well as the regime's human rights abuses, arbitrary arrest and detention of Venezuelan citizens."
