The Venezuelan Foreign Affairs Minister said that his counterpart shared the situation in the Middle East with him in the context of the siege by the governments of the United States and Israel. “Some actors have begun to detach themselves from historical positions,” he said, referring to the issue of some Arab countries after their signing of “normalization of relations” with the Israeli regime.

He also pointed out that from the regional point of view, (Latin America and the Caribbean), they talked about the position of the Peoples of Our America (Alba) and Non-Aligned Countries, “who will always be aware of the recognition of the Palestinian people as a sovereign State,” argued Arreaza.
