Peru denounced before the Human Rights Council of the United Nations (UN) the systematic violation of human rights in Venezuela, informed the Peruvian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Néstor Popolizio, according to El Peruano.
The Peruvian initiative was supported by 53 member states of the United Nations, including the countries that make up the Lima Group and the European Union, said this media today.
According to the information provided by Popolizio, Peru informed that the report of the United Nations High Commissioner confirmed that in Venezuela there are serious violations of human rights, due to the serious crisis unleashed after the breakdown of democratic order in that country.
“The severity of the crisis has generated a massive exodus of Venezuelan citizens who have emigrated to different countries in the region,” said a text that the Chancellery of Peru shared with the media.
For his part, Ambassador Claudio de la Puente, representative of Peru before the Human Rights Council based in Geneva (Switzerland), also urged the government of Venezuela to accept, without delay, the entry of humanitarian aid in order to alleviate the serious social and economic crisis.
