Morocco Follows with Great Concern Situation in Venezuela

The Kingdom of Morocco follows with great concern Venezuela’s internal situation, a statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation said.

The Kingdom of Morocco deplores the fact that the peaceful demonstrations that took place this week in Venezuela resulted in casualties, including deaths among the young people taking part in the demonstrations, the statement added.

Venezuela's wide-ranging protests are the result of the deep deterioration of the political, economic and social situation in the country, the ministry noted, adding that this situation is inconsistent with the country's large hydrocarbon resources, and which, unfortunately, remain monopolized by a minority oligarchy in power.

Venezuelan citizens are deprived of their most basic human rights to medication, food, access to drinking water and basic social services, the ministry said.

The Kingdom of Morocco strongly condemns the violation of political, economic and social rights in this country and calls on the Venezuelan government to peacefully manage this crisis and to comply with its international obligations, the statement concluded.
