The National Assembly (ANC) yesterday approved a draft agreement to reject a decision by the European Union (EU) to extend sanctions against the Venezuelan government for a year trying to push the country's way.
Adan Chávez, chairman of ANC's International Affairs Committee, presented a draft agreement associating the EU's decision on "the new attacks and blockades of the United States government and some governments that make up the European Union."
At the meeting, the constitution highlighted the willingness of the pro-government sector to impose sanctions, and asserted that "it is part of a continuing coup that has done with other European governments in various foreign cases."
"The importance of the agreement (finally approved) shows the decision of sovereignty against the empire and its allies, it is not planned, it is an example of various forms of attack," he said.
AN submitted for review
The National Assembly (AN) has declared in the General Committee that the various parliamentary factions consider a draft agreement on the EU decision. We hope that the heads of factions will agree on the decisions of the European body on Venezuela.
The EU renews the measures
The European Union (EU) on Tuesday agreed to extend sanctions against Venezuela for a year that it wants to "push Nicolás Maduro's government for the restoration of democracy and human rights in the country," according to AFP news agency.
"In view of the continuing worsening of the situation in Venezuela, the Council decided to renew the restrictive measures currently in force until 14 November 2019", it was announced. The country reaffirms the words of Federico Mogherini, the head of European diplomacy, who reiterated that the Bloc did not intend to "refine its position" despite studying a contact group to "ease" the EU's policy over the past year by imposing sanctions against Venezuela because, in its opinion undermined democracy, the rule of law and human rights.
On November 13, 2017, the bloc adopted sanctions against Venezuela and imposed a first arms embargo, as well as repressive material.
Deputy AN and component differ
President of the National Assembly's Foreign Policy Committee, Francisco Sucre, said that what happened yesterday is interpreted as an action that is in line with the European Union's policy against those who have become human rights abusers and those who have committed state corruption, which destroyed Venezuela, except those who refused to have a free process of transparent and competitive elections. "
Julio Chávez, chairman of the Communal Councils of the Constitutional Assembly of the Commission, is "implementing the doctrine of domination against the people of Venezuela by the various governments of the United States over the years", he added, "Facing the failure of the demoralized, fragmented and corrupt Venezuelan opposition, some Latin American organizations governments have opted for mechanisms of international pressure to support interventions and apply sanctions against national governments.
