"It is an absolutely global violation of International Law, the Charter of the United Nations and I must say it as a country victim of the blockade, that the countries feel defenseless because we do not have mechanisms to which to resort" - Vice President Delcy categorically asserted Rodriguez.
Next, she asserted that "Venezuela was excluded from the international financial system, showing a disrespect for international law, with serious human consequences."
