Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro lauded an “historic” meeting between Venezuelan Foreign Minister Elías Jaua, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, and the Secretary-General of the Southern Common Market (Mercosur), Carlos “Chacho” Alvarez.
President Maduro commented on the occasion via his twitter account, @NicolasMaduro, where he shared an image taken during meeting and wrote: “Our Foreign Minister Elías Jaua with the Sec. Gen. of the UN and Mercosur in New York. The Revolution making history.”
The meeting was held in New York and allowed the regional organization to issue a complaint regarding the espionage policy of the United States.
During a press conference, Jaua said: “Our concern and our warning regarding the grave implications of these illegal proceedings developed by the U.S. Government, have to do with the political stability of countries and the mutual trust that is necessary in the international community.”
