The Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela rejected on Thursday the unfriendly and interventionist attitude of the Republic of Germany against the country, endorsing attacks against the nation of Bolivar that some countries, backed by the United States, try to carry out from the International Criminal Court (ICC).
In a statement issued by the Chancellory of the Republic, Venezuela emphasizes that the “arrogant attitude assumed by the German government has a negative impact on bilateral relations. In this regard, we urge the Government of the Federal Republic of Germany to rule out interference, and focus its relationship with Venezuela on the construction of mechanisms of dialogue and cooperation based on respect”.
Earlier, a spokesman for the German Chancellory endorsed the petition presented at the end of September by Argentina, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Peru and Paraguay for the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC) to investigate alleged violations of human rights in Venezuela .
Following, the full text:
“The Government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela categorically rejects the unfriendly attitude assumed by the Government of the Federal Republic of Germany, against the infamies that a group of cartelized governments seeks to promote against Venezuela, in the International Criminal Court (ICC).
It is not surprising to the Bolivarian Government that Germany should bend to the designs of the warmongering government of the United States, which insistently presses the world’s governments in an obscene manner to establish a position against our country, violating the most elementary principles of International Law.
The arrogant attitude assumed by the German government has a negative impact on bilateral relations. In this regard, we urge the Government of the Federal Republic of Germany to rule out interventionism, and to focus its relationship with Venezuela in the construction of dialogue and cooperation mechanisms based on respect.
