Venezuela and Bolivia strengthen ties of cooperation and solidarity

The president of the Plurinational State of Bolivia, Luís Arce, arrived this Wednesday afternoon in Venezuela, in order to deepen strategic alliances with the South American nation, which go through the fields of energy and oil, gas, education, culture, health, ecological mining, air services and news exchange.

After landing at the “Simón Bolívar” International Airport in Maiquetía, he was received by the president of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, and other authorities of the National Executive.

Offered the honors corresponding to his high investiture, Arce steps on Venezuelan soil a few hours after participating in the general debate of the 78th session of the General Assembly of the United Nations (UN), where he called to banish the implementation of unilateral coercive sanctions and condemned the economic blockade by the US towards Cuba:

Banish the international system of implementation of unilateral coercive sanctions, which violate basic human rights. It is an example of a dysfunctional system, far from international law and multilateralism,” said the president during his speech in this general debate.

The Bolivian President visited Venezuela on April 30 this year to participate in the 3rd Venezuela – Bolivia Joint Integration Commission as part of bilateral cooperation.
