Venezuela, Red Cross reach an agreement on family reunification

Caracas, Jun 15 (Prensa Latina) Venezuela and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) on Monday signed an agreement on the reunification of Venezuelan children and teenagers abroad with their relatives.

During the agreement signing, Venezuelan Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza thanked ICRC representation for always showing its willingness to aid Venezuela in the most sensitive areas and the most vulnerable populations.

Arreaza said that Venezuela´s migration issue in recent years was related to the geopolitical strategy implemented by external actors against the Bolivarian State.

The Venezuelan Foreign Minister reiterated the Nicolás Maduro administration´s concern about a great deal of Venezuelan children and teens abandoned in Colombia, some held in State centers.

As there are no diplomatic ties with the Iván Duque administration, it is much more difficult to reunify children and teens with their relatives in Venezuela, Arreaza said.

In this regard, Arreaza praised ICRC´s forthcoming support to locate these children and guarantee their return to Venezuela.
