Venezuela's executive vice president, Delcy Rodríguez, denounced that the Netherlands prevented the transfer of a representative delegation of the South American country's government to The Hague, where a meeting with the prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC), Karim Khan, was scheduled.
In a press conference, Rodriguez announced that Venezuela presented its energetic protest rejecting the violation of the agreements that exist between the ICC and the Netherlands for this type of memorandum.

"There is cynicism and deceit behind this decision; they cannot put impediments for a State to move to fulfill a work agenda between the ICC and Venezuela," she urged.
"It is shameful what is happening; in view of this situation, President Nicolás Maduro has instructed to inform all international bodies to schedule this meeting in another country to be able to comply with the agreement," she said.
