On September 22, Venezuelan’s National Constituent Assembly (ANC) unanimously approved a decree proclaiming the South American country as a zone of peace, where human rights are promoted and protected.
Before all 545 members and in honor of International Day of Peace, ANC President Delcy Rodríguez, reaffirmed peace as the only possible road for Venezuela.
The country’s former Foreign Minister noted that the ANC emerged in an intense period of violence promoted by far-right groups in the country, seeking to take power by disrupting the peace and stability of the Bolivarian Republic.
Given such a situation, Rodríguez noted, “We’ve come here to make peace, to defend peace and to consolidate peace, which is why we must pay tribute today,” because the Venezuelan flag “is an eternal flag of peace,” she stated.
The proclamation, read by ANC Vice President, Elvis Amoroso, declares Venezuela to be a “territory of peace where life, freedom, justice, and equality are promoted, respected, and protected; and human rights, ethics, and political diversity prevail.”
The ANC also called on all Venezuelans to support dialogue as a tool toward peacefully resolving disputes, and condemned violence in all its forms, as well as threats and unilateral sanctions against countries around the world.
“We are currently fighting for freedom and are doing so peacefully,” stated second ANC Vice President, Isaías Rodríguez, in reference to recent measures taken by the U.S. against Venezuela.  (teleSUR)
