Venezuela's National Assembly Deputy Edgar Zambrano, the leader of the parliamentary fraction of opposition party Acción Democrática (AD), has held a meeting with Apostolic Nuncio to Venezuela Monsignor Pietro Parolin as part of the number of meetings and talks in favor of the freedom of prisoners and the return of people involuntarily living in exile.
The deputy, who currently coordinates the team in charge of dealing with this issue, expressed his satisfaction at the outcome of the meeting with the Apostolic Nuncio, who pledged to pray for the success of the initiative aimed at the reconciliation of Venezuelans. "The Nuncio expressed being delighted by this humanitarian action and informed us that he will be spiritually supporting its progress by praying for its success," he remarked.
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.
