ALBA-TCP Executive Secretary rejects attacks on the multilateral system by the US Government

In an interview for the program The world in context, broadcast by Venezolana de Televisión (VTV), the Executive Secretary of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America-Peoples’ Trade Treaty (ALBA-TCP), Sacha Llorenti Soliz, on Thursday called on some nations of Europe and the United States, which believe themselves as superior than International Law, to respect the sovereignty and self-determination of the peoples and not interfere in the internal affairs of any country, while regretting the actions that violate the multilateral system.

“The multilateral system is, especially in the last four years, under a horrible siege, under a ruthless attack”, he repudiated while exemplifying some attacks on multilateralism from the United States Government, such as its withdrawal from the Paris Agreement, the Nuclear Agreement with Iran, among many other actions that also violate the Charter of the United Nations.

During the interview, the Secretary of the Alliance referred to the meeting he held with the People’s Power Minister for Foreign Relations, Jorge Arreaza, to review the annual agenda and the Post-pandemic Work Plan of the member countries of the regional body that will serve to consolidate the joint cooperation, political agreement and the economic recovery of nations.

Venezuela: Historical example

On the other hand, the ALBA-TCP authority highlighted the historical importance of the democratic process that is being strengthened in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, stating that the installation of the new National Assembly in the South American country, “has been exemplary, in what also corresponds to a democratic scenario of debate”, despite threats of violence from some sectors of the radical opposition and supporters of the outgoing administration of the Legislative Power.

In this sense, the diplomat stressed that “the problems of Venezuelans have to be resolved by Venezuelans”, through the mechanisms and institutions that the people decide, “and it is the responsibility of the International Community to be respectful of the sovereign decisions of any State”, for which he reiterated that the installation of the new parliament evidences the search for peaceful resolutions of controversies.
