The UN General Assembly approved on Monday a resolution that confirms the credentials received this year by the different member states, including those of the diplomats appointed by the Venezuelan Government of Nicolas Maduro.
The text, usually a mere formality, was endorsed by the plenary of this body, in which the 193 United Nations member states sit.
- Venezuela: the wife of the opposition Freddy Superlano is disqualified from the elections in Barinas
- The start of the trial in the US against Álex Saab, the supposed greatest figurehead of Maduro, is delayed
- Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court says he is “not in the business of a regime change” in Venezuela
Maduro’s delegation has at all times been the one that has represented Venezuela before the UN during the crisis in the country, despite the fact that almost 60 governments recognize the opposition Juan Guaidó as interim president.
Despite the approval of the resolution, Colombia, who spoke on behalf of 14 more countries, stressed that this “should not be interpreted as a tacit recognition of our countries to Nicolás Maduro or his designated representatives in this assembly.”
Specifically, Colombia also expressed the views of Australia, Brazil, Canada, Ecuador, El Salvador, the United States, Georgia, Guatemala, Honduras, the Marshall Islands, Israel, Paraguay, the United Kingdom, and South Korea.
However, the Venezuelan ambassador to the UN, Samuel Moncada, interpreted the resolution’s approval in this way, which did not only address Venezuelan credentials.
“We thank the member states of this assembly for accepting our credentials, rejecting colonial aggressions against our country and recognizing the will of our people,” Moncada said at the UN General Assembly.
The resolution, presented by the Swedish ambassador to the UN, Anne Enestrom, president of the Credentials Committee of the General Assembly, also confirmed the postponement of the decision regarding the accreditation of the Taliban as head of the government of Afghanistan. as well as that of the Myanmar military junta.
