Venezuelan foreign minister questions Argentina's stance in Geneva
Caracas, Oct 8 (Prensa Latina) Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza on Thursday questioned the stance by the Argentinean Government, which aligned itself with the Lima Group and voted against Venezuela at the United Nations.
On his Twitter account, Arreaza wrote that President Alberto Fernandez should not support 'cartelized' governments and the United States in its pretentions to use human rights to interfere in Venezuela's sovereignty.
'They let themselves be dragged by the interventionist and hostile pretentions of the Lima Group (…) Regrettably, in Geneva, the Argentinean Foreign Ministry did not support the Resolution to strengthen real cooperation and dialogue between the Office of the High Commissioner and Venezuela,' Arreaza twitted.
Argentina's vote in favor of the polemic report on human rights submitted by United Nations High Commissioner Michelle Bachelet was rejected internationally, even within the Government.
Among the strongest reaction was that of Argentinean Ambassador to Russia Alicia Castro, who resigned to her post due to her country's foreign policy, and questioned the Government's stance in Geneva in her letter of resignation.
So far, the Argentinean Government has not made a statement in that regard, despite all questionings by supporters, allies and friends.
