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
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.
A simple reason: there is oil galore, would suffice to explain Guyana's actions. Another explanation lies in the little or none efforts made by the Venezuelan government to thwart the move by the Guyanese. This is certainly not a new problem, but a problem only recently highlighted because oil is involved. But what other resources does the disputed area hold? For most of us it is a section on the map with black and white stripes on it, a depiction of something distant, alien, a nothingness not worth paying much attention to in geography classes back in elementary school.
