Foreign Minister Yván Gil participates in the presentation of a book on Venezuela

The book called: “Corporate Coup: Venezuela and the End of the United States Empire” was written by American journalist, Anya Parampil.

From New York, the Minister of Popular Power for Foreign Affairs, Yván Gil, participated this Friday in an event with the renowned American journalist, Anya Parampil, who presented her book “Corporate Coup: Venezuela and the End of the Empire of the United States.” .

In the activity, the Venezuelan Foreign Minister commented on his participation the previous day in the 89th plenary meeting of the General Assembly of the United Nations (UN), in relation to the topic “Elimination of Extraterritorial Unilateral Coercive Economic Measures used as Instrument of Political and Economic Coercion,” says a note from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Within the multilateral organization, Venezuela reiterated its denunciation of the more than 930 systematic and sustained measures of economic terrorism applied to date by the government of the United States (USA), the European Union and other satellite nations.

“We have seen unanimous condemnation within the General Assembly, because the large groups, such as the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM), the G-77 + China, the Group of Friends in Defense of the UN Charter, “They rejected the application of unilateral coercive measures (MCU),” he noted.

He condemned that shamefully, a group of countries defended the sanctions, but they are the countries that apply them, that is, “the criminals who defended themselves. We saw a debate between the attacked and the aggressors, between the world that rises up and builds the new, and between the world that still has the colonialist mentality and actions.”

Minister Gil asserted that it was clear at the UN plenary meeting that the application of the MCU is not only criminal and illegal, but also has no effect on changing the behavior of people, beyond generating collective punishment.

He stressed that the sanctions are nothing more than the expression of the decline of an imperial world system and leadership that today succumbs to the reality of its decline.

Gil also spoke about the responsibility of the Bolivarian Government in the administration of resources from the commercialization of its oil and gas, demonstrated for example in the creation of the Petrocaribe program for energy support to Caribbean countries, including Haiti.

He also presented the country's strengths in view of its aspiration to become a full member of the BRICS group, such as the largest proven reserves of oil, one of the largest reserves of gas and many other minerals, in addition to its successful political experience in promoting systems. integration, such as ALBA-TCP, UNASUR, CELAC, and affinity with the principles that govern the actions of the block of emerging countries.
