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.
A shipment of over 30,000 tons of phosphate arrived at Puerto Cabello port in late July on board the Shi Long Ling, a Chinese-flagged vessel that began its long journey in northern Africa. The cargo boat docked on July 26 after traveling more than 3,200 nautical miles. Undoubtedly, this would just be considered one in many cargo ships crisscrossing the oceans if it were not for the fact that Venezuela has denounced Western Sahara occupation by Morocco and yet purchases the territory's natural resource products from the occupying power.
