Zelenski videoconference in Chile

In Chile, there was a proposal for the president to speak before Congress, but he did not get the unanimity required to accept it.

“It should not be confused that foreign relations is a matter that is handled by the President of the Republic. It seems to us that it is not appropriate, that it is not adequate”, said the PC senator, Daniel Núñez, justifying their opposition.

“I hope the committees meditate on this situation, the different parties, and do not give support to a measure that in my opinion is absolutely irresponsible,” he added.
