Caracas, Jul 10 (Prensa Latina) Venezuela advocated for the suspension of the foreign debt's payment, among the proposals submitted to the International Labor Organization (ILO), aimed at mitigating the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Upon speaking at the virtual ILO world summit on Thursday, Eduardo Piñate, Minister for the Social Work Process in Venezuela, called for restoring border coordination among the countries for their organized opening and thus containing effectively the spread of the virus.
The minister asked the international body to adopt a declaration condemning xenophobia and stigmatization of the migrants globally, affected by the greatest health emergency in the last century.
Piñate also rejected the unilateral coercive measures imposed by the United States and its allies, which limit the action of many governments amid the pandemic. The Venezuelan minister urged that these punitive actions are immediately eradicated, because they harm the populations of the affected countries and hinder the progress of the labor sector, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs reported in a press release.
