A statement from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs indicated that ‘the libel’ was presented this Monday before that mechanism, which emerged in 2019 from a questioned resolution promoted by a reduced group of governments with serious internal situations of violation of human rights.
The text affirmed that this is a clear example of the ‘double standards, selectivity and politicized use of human rights’ as a tool to undermine the sovereignty of those States that do not submit to the designs of hegemonic control desired by some powers.
The note maintained that the ‘new pseudo-report’ lacks the slightest methodological support or direct contact with the reality of the country, with which ‘the intention is to continue attacking Venezuelan institutions’.
All this, he indicated, as part of the criminal strategy of ‘regime change’ promoted by the United States, with the complicity of its satellite governments in the world.
Venezuela ratified that it is a democratic and social State of Law and Justice, which assumes the promotion, respect and protection of human rights as a superior value of its legal system and the actions of its institutions, in full consonance with its international commitments in this matter.
The Bolivarian Republic ratified that it will continue to cooperate with the Human Rights Council, always on the basis of strict adherence to the principles of objectivity, non-selectivity, impartiality, non-interference in internal affairs, respect for multilateralism and constructive dialogue.
