UNASUR strongly condemns US decree against Venezuela

The Union of Southamerican Nations (UNASUR) has urged the US government to abrogate the decree that last week declared Venezuela as a threat to the country’s national security and called for dialogue between Washington and Caracas.

The Chancellors of the 12 member countries gathered in Quito five days after US President Barack Obama signed a decree declaring Venezuela an “extraordinary risk” for his country’s security and sanctioning several Venezuelan officials.

Unasur condemned US decision, describing it as an “interventionist threat to sovereignty and the principle of non-intervention in the internal affairs of States,” in a statement published on the Union’s website.

“The member States of UNASUR reiterates its call for the US government to study and implement dialogue alternatives with Venezuela’s government, under principles of respect of sovereignty and the people’s self-determination,” the statement adds.
