After the reception of the ministers and senior officials who will participate in the ministerial meeting of the Countries of Non-Aligned Movement (NAM), the Foreign Minister of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Jorge Arreaza, said that the member States should demand respect for international law at the crucial moment when foreign powers seek to impose unilateralism.

The Government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, asked the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Michelle Bachelet, to correct the report she presented after her visit to the country between June 19 and 21, because she lacks impartiality and objectivity by ignoring the information on the progress of social policies and protection of the Venezuelan people executed by the National Government, dismissing the impact of the economic and financial blockade.

“Venezuela is sure that you know that the report does not reflect the reality of what you saw in Venezuela. We demand the correctness of its content, and we urge you to make a respectful performance of the office”, said the Vice-minister of International Communication of the People’s Power Ministry for Foreign Relations, William Castillo.

The president of the Caribbean Community (Caricom) and Prime Minister of Saint Kitts and Nevis, Timothy Harris, reaffirmed on Thursday the position of the regional bloc in favor of dialogue to resolve the political situation in Venezuela through peaceful and democratic means.

The principle of self-determination and non-interference, respect for sovereignty and constitutional principles “is what we have to cling to in a world where international law and multilateralism are being undermined”, Harris said in St. Lucia where, since last Wednesday the 40th Ordinary Meeting of the Conference of Heads of State and Government of Caricom was heald.

With a clearly partial and selective vision of the Venezuelan reality, this Thursday, the report made by the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Michelle Bachelet, on the situation of human rights in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, was disseminated. It privileges lacking in objectivity sources and excludes almost the whole of the official information and elements provided by the Venezuelan State authorities during her visit between June 19 and 21, as well as during the visit of her technical team between 11 and 22 March 2019.

The following is an integral text of the letter sent to the High Commissioner for Human Rights, Michelle Bachelet, by the Venezuelan Human Rights Network and the non-governmental organizations that comprise it.
