Venezuelan top diplomat Jorge Arreaza stressed that the suffering in Venezuela is due to Washington’s economic war against the South American country.

Foreign Ministers of Russia and Venezuela, Sergey Lavrov and Jorge Arreaza, held a press conference Sunday in the Russian capital Moscow,in which both diplomats urged strengthening dialogue mechanisms that advocate a peaceful solution in the South American country.

 

The Russian foreign minister called on the United States to respect international law established according to the United Nations Charter, while reiterating Russia’s support for a peaceful dialogue in Venezuela. He also urged the United States to cancel its “irresponsible” plans to oust President Nicolas Maduro.

For his part, Arreaza stressed that the suffering in Venezuela is due to Washington’s economic war against the South American country. “Today in Venezuela, the suffering we endure is thanks to how the financial system has blocked our resources.”

He added that the Maduro government continues its calls on the Trump administration for dialogue along with the Venezuelan right-wing opposition so “we are sure that the commitment of the dialogue will prevail over Venezuela.”
