UN committee to hold in Venezuela summit on Palestine
Venezuela and Palestine entered into agreement to "dismantle mass media manipulation"
The ambassador remarked that the meeting aims at assessing the effects of the new status granted to Palestine (observer country) and the implementation of the actions adopted by the Movement of Non-Aligned Countries in order to draft a World Solidarity Plan for such a cause, AVN cited.
The decision to hold the meeting in Venezuela was made on Tuesday during talks held by Venezuelan Executive Vice-President and Foreign Minister Nicolás Maduro and Palestine Foreign Minister Riad Al-Maliki in Caracas, capital of Venezuela.
In their recent meeting, the two ministers entered into a Venezuela-Palestine bilateral agreement on communication and information to "dismantle mass media manipulation, which has been encouraged by international powerful groups." Other agreements were also initialed.
José Vicente Rangel clearly said: "We are not conducting negotiations threatened with a gun in the head." He warned behind closed doors in the midst of the social upheaval occurred during the oil strike in 2002 and 2003. Dissenting Timoteo Zambrano answered back that no other option was available: "The thing is that otherwise, you do not negotiate."
