Chancellor Arreaza held meeting with UN Secretary General


The Minister for Foreign Affairs of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Jorge Arreaza, met this Thursday with the Secretary General of the United Nations Organization (UN), Antonio Guterres, to whom he asked to act to enforce the Organization’s Charter.
Through the Twitter social network, the Venezuelan Chancellor indicated that, during the meeting, he transmitted to the UN secretary the position of the Venezuelan government on the need to enforce the fundamental document of the international organization, taking measures against the unilateral actions that the US government exerts against Cuba – for more than 60 years – and Venezuela.
Earlier, Minister Arreaza participated in the UN General Assembly in which was passed a resolution presented by Cuba, in rejection of the US administration’s embargo against the island.
The resolution was passed with 187 votes in favor. Brazil, Israel and the United States voted against, while Colombia and Ukraine abstained.
