Deputy Rosmit Mantilla, together with the Deputy Commissioner and Special Envoy in France, Isadora Zubillaga, have held permanent working sessions with members of the French Parliament to document the serious situation in Venezuela and analyze the independent international Report of the Fact Finding Mission of the UN, as part of the international management of the interim government in the fight for the rescue of democracy.
On this Wednesday’s afternoon the Deputy of the National Assembly of France, Mickael Nogal, raised a question before representatives of the French executive about the position of the French nation, about the worsening of the humanitarian crisis in Venezuela and December 6th fraud to the Minister of Foreign Affairs Jean-Yves Le Drian.
Deputy Nogal, urged the government to establish a position on the worsening humanitarian crisis, the increase in repression and the persecution by Nicolás Maduro’s regime. In the same context, a clear position was requested on the recent UN report.
Minister Le Drian for his part responded qualifying the situation in Venezuela as serious, acknowledging the rapid deterioration of human rights, thus remembering the almost 400 political prisoners. In addition to this, he asserted that the alleged parliamentary elections called by Nicolás Maduro lack transparency and will be carried out within a framework of voracious persecution and repression of dissent. Similarly, he ratified that the only body recognized by France is the National Assembly and the interim president, Juan Guaidó. At the same time, he described the latest UN report as serious and significant.
He also let it be known that in January, France will be part of the UN Human Rights Council, where it will promote more sanctions and other types of actions within the framework of international law.
Minister @JY_LeDrian condemns the regime for crimes against humanity. It stands against the fraud of the dictatorship and recognizes @JuanGuaido and @AsntaciónVE as the only legitimate institutions. https://t.co/ofcQsiQ0pi

“Our diplomatic efforts continue to bear fruit in favor of freedom for all Venezuelans. Today France and Europe know in detail the humanitarian emergency to which the dictator Nicolás Maduro is subjecting us today,” said deputy Mantilla.
This action carried out by the National Assembly of France, is part of the strategic actions carried out by the President in charge, his representation in France and the National Assembly, within the framework of the rescue of democracy in our country.
Agradecemos la contundencia de #Francia en el respaldo a la lucha democrática por salir de una dictadura que comete crímenes de lesa humanidad.
