Speaking at a video conference, Arreaza stressed Venezuela’s will to punish this crime, which it considers one of the main obstacles to the development and consolidation of equitable partnerships.
‘We are encouraged by the conviction that the resources managed by the States and economic and political relations must respond (…) to public welfare, particularly that of the most vulnerable,’ said Arreaza.
Likewise, Jorge Arreaza reiterated his condemnation of unilateral coercive measures enforced by the United States against Venezuela, and described them as ‘an unquestionable act of corruption,’ by freezing assets worth over 30 billion dollars and belonging to the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.
‘We are referring to a form of corruption induced from centers of power with geopolitical intentions. Aggression against Venezuela has deprived us of companies, funds and financing capacity,’ he said.
Arreaza asserted that Venezuela’s institutional infrastructure acted firmly against corruption at various levels and maintained a permanent improvement in the implementation of the existing legal mechanisms.
