During the 9th Economic Conclave of India, Latin America and the Caribbean, Rodríguez mentioned that the economic blockade in Venezuela also impacted international relations: “The blockade against Venezuela is not only against Venezuela, it is against the European bloc, it is against the Caribbean, It is against Latin America, it is against the BRICS bloc, it is against India”.

If you realize, this ninth conclave is taking place within the framework of countries that are part of the movement of non-aligned countries, India, the founding country, and Latin America and our Caribbean are also part of the NAM, practically as a whole, and that means that there is a path where success is marked by respect, is marked by friendship and can be efficiently translated into cooperation and benefits for all peoples”.
