VENEZUELAN President Nicolas Maduro has called on the United Nations to create a fund for countries affected by unilateral coercive measures “which only aggravate the conditions of poverty of their people.”
Speaking at the virtual UN general assembly on Tuesday, Mr Maduro said: “Human life has to be the centre of our strategies today more than ever.
“Therefore, it is essential to prioritise international solidarity above any political interest.”
The Bolivarian leader proposed the creation of a public fund within the UN system to guarantee that developing countries have access to health and food products.
“This idea will tackle inequities effectively and urgently. Our Agenda 2030 must prioritise that no country is left behind,” he said.
Mr Maduro also called for an end to economic, financial and commercial blockades against countries such as his own.
“The US blockade and persecution against Venezuela hurts all the people without distinction of race, creed and political ideology,” he later tweeted.
“It is an aggression that we have faced together as a people with dignity and courage.”
