Venezuela Meets With UN Human Rights Council in Geneva

(TELESUR) – Venezuelan Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza appealed again to the countries of the U.N. to act in the face of the U.S. interventionist aggression.

Venezuelan Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza appeared before the Human Rights Council of the United Nations (UNHRC) in Geneva Wednesday to discuss the interference and threat of military intervention being wrought on his country by the United States.

He asked the international organization to speak out about the false flag operations they are using to justify a military intervention in Venezuela.

“President Nicolas Maduro, has been calling for dialogue between the disputing parties, but they have not wanted them because they come with strings attached,” he explained.

The Foreign Minister also stressed to the UNHRC that: “We’re calling for dialogue, dialogue with the United States — why not between Presidents Maduro and Trump? Why shouldn’t they meet so that they can try to find common ground and work out their differences?”

At the same time he also called for “dialogue between Venezuelan citizens.”

This Geneva trip comes on the heels of a session Tuesday of a special session of U.N. Security Council called by the United States to discuss Venenzuela.

At that meeting, many countries, including those who have come out against Venezuela’s government, have rejected the use of force by the U.S., which Arreaza called a threat to Venezuela’s sovereignty and the rights of a free people as well as a violation of the United Nations charter.

After this meeting, Arreaza will meet privately with U.N. Geneva.
