Venezuela ratified today its multilateral commitment to the fight against climate change at the COP26 Conference held in Glasgow.
Minister for Ecosocialism of Venezuela, Josué Lorca, expressed during his participation in the event that the Bolivarian Government is convinced that a better world is possible, reasons for which it will support all attempts to preserve humanity.
Lorca pointed out that COP26 made it possible to complete implementation arrangements of the Paris Agreement and stressed that in Venezuela, these actions are addressed from the principles of ecosocialism.
In terms of forests, the deforestation rate is 47 percent, in a country which houses 1.19 percent of such areas on the planet, the high official explained in his speech.
Likewise, he reiterated his government's rejection against the unilateral coercive measures imposed by the United States and its allies on other nations, which, he assured, are contrary to the basic foundations of International and Environmental Law and restrict the right to sustainable development.
