Venezuela demands UN Security Council brings an end to war-policies of US and Colombia

VENEZUELA has urged the UN security council to “stop the war policies of the US and Colombia” and carry out its role of maintaining peace and security in the region in the face of escalating hostilities.

The country’s ambassador to the UN, Samuel Moncada, denounced the two countries’ involvement in the botched mercenary coup attempt earlier this month and their constant violations of international law and the UN Charter

“The world has seen the armed actions carried out against my country. The US government and Colombia helped in the planning, financing, training, and today they are protecting the mercenaries and terrorists who wanted to attack the civilian population, commit targeted assassinations against officials and kill President Maduro,” Mr Moncada said.

He told delegates that the economic blockade was a crime against humanity as well as a breach of the UN Charter.

“Our country does not represent a threat and we have to learn this lesson, Venezuela is not for sale, it will never be the colony of anyone and our people will continue to fight to remain free,” he said.
