September 22, 2019


The self-proclaimed “president in charge” of Venezuela, Juan Guaidó, will not personally attend the General Assembly of the United Nations that is held next week in New York, but instead will send a team headed by its head of foreign policy, Julio Borges , and his 'ambassador' in the United States, Carlos Vecchio.

Borges, Vecchio and the opposition deputy Miguel Pizarro will make up the delegation sent by Guaidó to the inauguration of the 74th session of the UN General Assembly. They will be in New York between September 23 and 27 to hold bilateral meetings and “participate in different forums inside and outside the United Nations related to the reconstruction of Venezuela, the extraction of gold and the crisis of migrants and refugees,” they have reported. it's a statement.

One of the main objectives is “to mobilize the world in the face of the threat posed by international narcoterrorism sponsored by the regime of (Nicolás) Maduro”. In this sense, “together with democratic allies of the hemisphere,” they will denounce “the dangerous links of the Maduro dictatorship with international narcoterrorist groups that pose a dangerous threat to the region and the world.”

In addition, the emissaries of Guaidó will underline the magnitude of the “complex humanitarian emergency” that Venezuela is suffering, “which is not a consequence of a war or a natural catastrophe”, but of “a man-made disaster created by the regime of Maduro, whose consequences have had a tremendous impact on the Western Hemisphere, with more than 4.3 million citizens who have migrated from their home country, “said Vecchio.

On the other hand, they have warned that “in the next few days the emissaries of the illegitimate Maduro will try to deceive the international community with their habitual lies.” “The truth is that Maduro is not able to govern in Venezuela, much less represent him internationally with his usurping collaborators,” they have sentenced.
