Guterres reiterated his concern about the impact of the current Venezuelan crisis on the people.
The United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres recognized, Friday, the representation of the Venezuelan Government - led by its Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza - while rejecting the interests of deputy of the National Assembly (AN), Juan Guaido, who unconstitutionally proclaimed himself "president in charge" on Jan. 23.
"Antonio Guterres responds to Guaido's letter. The UN is ready to increase its humanitarian and development activities in Venezuela."
"The United Nations is ready to increase its activities in Venezuela in the areas of humanitarian assistance and development. However, for this, the United Nations needs the consent and the cooperation of the Government," Dujarric said and added that the Guterres “underscores that recognizing governments is not a function for the Secretary but for Member states.”
