Minister of People’s Power for Foreign Affairs Jorge Arreaza demanded the European Union (EU) to revise its recently announced meddling and anti-diplomatic sanctions against 11 Venezuelan officials.
“We demand the reversion of these meddling and anti-diplomatic sanctions that violate international law and disturb dialogue and mutual respect,” stressed the Venezuelan foreign minister on his Twitter account @jaarreaza.
The Venezuelan diplomat condemned these illegal sanctions in response to a statement by High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs Josep Borrel on the expulsion of the EU Ambassador to Caracas Isabel Brilhante Pedrosa.
On Monday, June 29, President Nicolás Maduro gave the EU representative 72 hours to leave the country due to the EU’s recurrent meddling in Venezuela’s domestic affairs.
“I have decided to give the Ambassador of the European Union to Caracas 72 hours to leave the country. Enough of European colonialism against Venezuela!” stressed the Venezuelan president.
