“The administration of the president of the United States (USA), Donald Trump, has tried to limit the participation of certain countries in the General Assembly of the United Nations (UN), as is the case of Iran and how they tried to do it with Venezuela to try to say there`s a parallel government, ”said internationalist Jean Paul Mertz, during his participation in the 360 ° program broadcast by Venezolana de Televisión.
He stressed Venezuela reinforces its participation as a legitimate government in the UN, “in turn President Nicolás Maduro undertakes a tour to Russia, one of Venezuela’s main political and commercial allies and also reinforces the entire economic recovery agenda of the Bolivarian Revolution for our people ”.

“It shows more and more how the Trump administration and its puppets, such as Bolsonaro, are more isolated from the international scene. The ultra-right agenda isn’t adapted to respect scenarios between different nations, ”he said.
Mertz said the measure of economic, financial and commercial blockade that Trump favors against the Venezuelan people “represents an attack on the world economic system.”
The internationalist said that the problem with this new measure is that its legal bases are contextualized in Barack Obama decree proposed in March 2015, which states that Venezuela represents an unusual and extraordinary threat to US interests.
