Venezuelan President urges UN to build new geopolitical system that respects needs

Noting the presence during the annual General Debate of world leaders, including the President of the United States, Mr. Moros said that rather than edicts from certain countries, he would rather talk about a “philosophy of peace.” “It is only peace that can ensure that we will achieve the 2030 Agenda, which is indeed a very lofty and optimistic programme,” he added.He then paid tribute to Colombia and its President, Juan Santos, who he said had achieved a peace agreement with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC). Mr. Moros also acknowledged the bold decision taken by the US to develop a new policy vis-à-vis Cuba, noting however that the “56 years of economic blockade of Cuba must come to an end as soon as possible.”He went on to address the border disputes with Colombia and Guyana, emphasizing that “today, I can say that we have really positive hopes that the situation will be resolved and we will be able to resume normal working relations with the Government of Colombia and the same applies to our sister republic of Guyana.”He continued, adding that some issues had arisen on the subject that had to be resolved. Mr. Moros said that Venezuela met with representatives of Guyana last Sunday and “the diplomacy of peace did prevail and we were able to take a positive decision and resolve the issue.” read more
