The recent visit of the Minister of Foreign Affairs, European Union and Cooperation of Spain, Arancha González Laya, to Colombia to fulfill a work agenda with the president of the New Granada nation, Iván Duque, and address the issue of Venezuelan migrants has been condemned and rejected by the European left deputies for considering it “one more form of the policy of subordination that the EU has to the United States (USA).
This was indicated by the MEP for the United We Can alliance, Manuel Pineda, who classified the aforementioned meeting as “negative” for strengthening relations with a government that systematically violates the Human Rights (HR) of its own population.
“The Minister comes here (Colombia) to meet, to worry about the refugees from Venezuela and does not worry about what happens here. We believe that it is a matter of political hypocrisy and we call it to reconsider ”, he stressed.
For his part, the secretary general of the United Left party, Enrique Santiago, considered that it is a “provocation or a serious diplomatic error” by Spain to talk about the Venezuelan migration issue with the “most extreme right-wing government in the region.”
In his Twitter account, the deputy also indicated that the Spanish nation “is annulled to help a solution.”
“If the EU suffocates Venezuela with illegal sanctions, it knows that the answer will be to expel its ambassador. Going with the most extreme right-wing government in the region to the Venezuelan border is a provocation or a serious diplomatic error. Thus, Spain is annulled to help a solution “, he wrote.
The Venezuelan Government has repeatedly denounced the violent conspiracy of Iván Duque and Álvaro Uribe against the Venezuelan people. They have even shown evidence that compromises Colombia in planning terrorist actions against the country.
In official pronouncements, both the Minister for Defense, Vladimir Padrino López and the President of the National Assembly Jorge Rodríguez have accused the President of Colombia, Iván Duque, of promoting continued actions in an attempt to violate the territorial sovereignty of Venezuela.
