UN committee to hold in Venezuela summit on Palestine
Venezuela and Palestine entered into agreement to "dismantle mass media manipulation"
The ambassador remarked that the meeting aims at assessing the effects of the new status granted to Palestine (observer country) and the implementation of the actions adopted by the Movement of Non-Aligned Countries in order to draft a World Solidarity Plan for such a cause, AVN cited.
The decision to hold the meeting in Venezuela was made on Tuesday during talks held by Venezuelan Executive Vice-President and Foreign Minister Nicolás Maduro and Palestine Foreign Minister Riad Al-Maliki in Caracas, capital of Venezuela.
In their recent meeting, the two ministers entered into a Venezuela-Palestine bilateral agreement on communication and information to "dismantle mass media manipulation, which has been encouraged by international powerful groups." Other agreements were also initialed.
President Nicolás Maduro is not only the heir to the throne, but also to an economic crisis which demanded urgent measures to rectify the course. The crisis showed up in two aspects: a 50% inflation estimate, and shortage of staples ranging between 70% and 98%. These issues might hit the President's poor popularity; considering his feeble electoral victory of 1% over his challenger.
