The Geopolitical Map of Sanctions was presented by the delegation of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, during a meeting as part of the 78th session of the United Nations (UN), in New York. During his intervention, the Vice Minister for Anti-Blockade Policies, William Castillo, pointed out that “there are no instruments, doctrines and methodological tools, internationally, nor from multilateral bodies, from multilateralism, to analyze the phenomenon of unilateral coercive measures.”
“On behalf of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, it is our responsibility to present the Geopolitical Map of Sanctions, a project born in Venezuela that seeks to strengthen information on the phenomenon of unilateral coercive measures and other measures of economic aggression against sovereign States,” said Castillo.
He indicated that millions of people in the world suffer the impact of these measures. “They are illegal instruments, which are outside international law, which should not exist. “They are cruel, inhuman measures, because they damage health systems, food trade, and human mobility that end up affecting the quality of life.”
The Geopolitical Map of Sanctions will contribute to the exchange and dissemination of information in the global fight against unilateral coercive measures. This tool arises as a global response to the aggressions of Western countries against sovereign nations.
