Venezuela presents this Tuesday its universal periodic review of Human Rights (HR) before the United Nations (UN), at its headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland, a commitment that the member states of the highest world body must fulfill every five years.


Venezuela demands the return of assets from its embassy in the US.

This will be his third exam after the first that took place in 2011 and the second in 2016, according to the Venezuelan ambassador to the United Nations in Geneva, Héctor Constant Rosales.

Between January 24 and February 4, in addition to Venezuela, the reports of 12 countries will be reviewed, including Togo, Syria, Zimbabwe, Uganda, East Timor, Moldova, South Sudan, Haiti and Iceland.

Vice President Delcy Rodríguez will be in charge of carrying out this Tuesday, remotely, the presentation of the universal periodic review corresponding to Venezuela, which takes place within the framework of the sessions of the UN Human Rights Council.

Ambassador Constant Rosales, in statements to the state-owned VTV, stressed that this mechanism will allow Venezuela to demonstrate to the world "the enormous impact that illegal and criminal unilateral coercive measures have had on the enjoyment of human rights."

"We have to show that we have been a besieged, vilified and attacked country and that despite that (...) we continue to reap a set of important successes and social, cultural, political, civil achievements that are part of that range of human rights. that we are absolutely committed to honoring,” he stressed.

The files will be examined by other States at the 40th session of the Universal Periodic Review (UPR).

The Venezuelan Foreign Ministry detailed in a statement that the UPR is a process that includes an evaluation of the human rights records of all the member countries of the United Nations, directed by the States under the auspices of the Human Rights Council, which offers each nation the opportunity to declare the measures they have adopted to improve the human rights situation and comply with their obligations in this regard.
