President Maduro agrees to invite again the Office of the UN High Commissioner

I have received the proposal to once again invite the Office of the High Commissioner of the United Nations (UN) to be in Venezuela. I agree on overcoming the differences, the conflict that existed, and I am prepared to receive the UN envoy!”, announced this Tuesday the Constitutional President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro Moros.

From Miraflores Palace, where he received the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC), Karim Khan, on his fourth visit to Caracas, the head of state said that he decided to accept the initiative brought by the prosecutor to overcome what happened between the office of the UN and Venezuela. “I have welcomed the proposal that Prosecutor Karim Khan brought to me, and that he ratified today.”

He added that, just as he sent the message to the President of the United States (USA), Joe Biden, he reiterated in English to the authorities of the Office of the UN High Commissioner: “If you want, I want as well. I want us to rebuild the communication bridges on the basis of dialogue and respect,” concluded the national leader.

Last February, the Chancellor of the Republic, Yván Gil, announced the suspension of the activities of the Technical Advisory Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights in Venezuela, and the expulsion of the organization’s officials due to their partial and illegal activities against the Bolivarian Republic.

The head of the office for Foreign Relations reported that Venezuela would comprehensively review the terms of technical cooperation described in the Letter of Understanding signed with said office, when requesting the staff of this office to leave the country in the next 72 hours.
