Valero: Venezuela to contribute a lot to the UN Human Rights Council

In the words of the Venezuelan ambassador to the United Nations, the Venezuelan State takes good care to enforce human rights

As far as Jorge Valero, the Ambassador of Venezuela to the United Nations (UN), is concerned, Venezuela's entry into the UN Human Rights Council is "the acknowledgment by 81% of the UN State Members of Venezuela's accomplishments in the field of human rights."

Venezuela "is to contribute a lot" based on its "experience in enjoyment and exercise of human rights," the ambassador reasoned. Valero specified that under the government of President Hugo Chávez, "the State maxim has been human rights for everybody instead of a few ones."

He also commented that Venezuelan regulations are regarded as one of the most "securing" systems in the world. To his mind, government authorities "take good care to make human rights thoroughly respected."

"I would like to note that the comprehensive social policies to build the 21st century socialism are bearing fruit," he stressed.
