Speech by President Nicolás Maduro responds to the exercise of sovereignty and self-determination of the peoples

“The Head of State covered specific and indicated aspects under the concept that international relations must respond to the purposes of the State in the exercise of sovereignty, interests of the people and principles of self-determination and, above all, non-intervention. But the most important thing is that he presented himself as a President recognized by the international community and by his main organization such as the United Nations, ”affirmed lawyer Hermann Escarrá when giving an analysis of the speech offered by the Head of State in his speech at the 75th session of the General Assembly of the United Nations (UN).

He stressed that the President of the Republic, Nicolás Maduro, was clear about the idea of ​​peacefully solving disputes in accordance with the principles of the UN charter and reiterated his adherence to the 1966 Geneva Agreement in order to reach a practical solution and satisfactory that in any case must comply with the procedures established in the international body.

“In his speech, the President made a geo-economic interpretation of the blockades that could be classified as crimes against humanity, he expressed solidarity with Cuba and Nicaragua, countries to which the United States has tried to violate their sovereignty. Consequently, his speech was diaphanous and clear where there is State doctrine attached to the constitutional precepts, ”he said.

In his opinion, he explained that after the pandemic, the UN must be more democratic internally, appealing to international balance and the values ​​of international law that are in the UN Charter and in treaties that accompany the international pact such as civil rights. , “Those values ​​that President Nicolás Maduro calls for a new international order must be capable of guaranteeing peace, non-intervention and non-interference, which constitutes the goals of guaranteeing a new time.”

Regarding the electoral process of upcoming December 6, Escarrá indicated that the electoral idea, where a little more than 70 parties and more than 14 thousand candidates concur, is an example of the broad representation that reaffirms democracy in Venezuela.

“These elections to the National Parliament are the broadest representation to which the Venezuelan opposition referred so much, the new National Assembly will democratically replace the imaginary processes, the lies, the presidents who are sworn in on the street, the idea of ​​the coup, the intervention, the economic blockade that affects the health and economic areas ”he explained.
