Upside Down World: Colombian Ambassador Very Affected by Venezuela’s UN Victory – “Venezuela has no Authority to be in the UN Human Right Council” (Yes, Colombian Right Lecturing on Human Rights)

On Thursday, October 17, the Colombian ambassador to the United Nations Organization (UN), Guillermo Fernández de Soto, said his country rejects the fact that Venezuela is part of the Human Rights Council, because – in his judgment – “it does not have the requirements or moral authority.”

However, the Colombian official acknowledged that the decision to withdraw Venezuela from that Council is not personal, but must be decided by all UN member countries.

“It is a position of principle that we express publicly with our allies of the Lima Group and we continue to maintain it,” Fernández said blatantly.
