The UN Human Rights Council today approved by majority a resolution that condemns the application of unilateral and continued execution of coercive measures as an instrument of pressure against any country.
In a message on his Twitter account, the Venezuelan People’s Power Minister for Foreign Relations, Yván Gil, indicated the document emphasizes that unilateral sanctions have far-reaching repercussions on human rights and disproportionately affect poor people and in a situation of maximum vulnerability.

He added that the resolution strongly opposes the extraterritorial nature of unilateral coercive measures that threaten the sovereignty of States and urges them not to recognize or apply them, and to adopt measures to counteract their effects.

The Human Rights Council reaffirmed that food and medicine should not be used as a tool of political coercion and that under no circumstances should people be deprived of their means of livelihood and development.

He stressed the text that all peoples have the right to self-determination, by virtue of which they freely establish their political condition and freely pursue their economic, social and cultural development.
