"Due to the U.S. government’s behavior, we must raise the flags of peace," Valero said.
At the Global Governance and Development Conference on Tuesday, Venezuela’s Ambassador to the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) Jorge Valero said that the United States is the biggest violator of human rights in the world.
The diplomat recalled that the U.S. decision to withdraw from the World Health Organization (WHO) is paradoxical as this organization needs to be strengthened the most at this moment.
He also repudiated President Donald Trump’s accusation that the WHO and China worked together to hide relevant information about the COVID-19 pandemic.
Valero highlighted that although the U.S. continues to be a member of the World Trade Organization (WTO), its protectionist practices are contrary to the multilateral trade system, which is weakened every time the Trump administration performs its trade war against China.
