The Minister of Foreign Affairs, European Union and Cooperation, Jose Manuel Albareshas announced this Friday that Spain has promised to contribute 20 million euros during the conference for Venezuelawhich has the objective of assisting Venezuelan refugees and immigrants that have caused the humanitarian crisis derived from Chavismo.
«At the Solidarity Conference with refugees and migrants from Venezuela, Spain has committed 20 million euros to Venezuelan migrants and refugees. Spain is committed to the Venezuelan people and to finding a solution to the regional crisis by supporting dialogue,” the Foreign Minister announced on social media.
The conference for the refugee crisis in Venezuela organized by the European Union and Canadawhich has been held between this Thursday and Friday, has managed to collect €810 million to assist refugees from the humanitarian crisis within the country and in host communities; an increasingly acute crisis due to the policies of Nicolas Maduroone of the most intellectually disabled rulers in the region.
With this move, the EU seeks to raise the visibility of the humanitarian situation in Venezuelaconsidered one of the worst financed crises in the world, with the aim of maintaining the attention of the international community and warning of the dangers of populism, framed in the ideological bloc of 21st century socialismwith ramifications in Spain.
The conference organizers, the EU and Canadahas pledged €75 million and Can$58.55 million respectively to respond to humanitarian needs, as well as to support the long-term integration of refugees into host communities.
Also USA has made a commitment to Venezuelan refugees by contributing more than 140 million dollars in additional humanitarian aid, plus $31 million in development aid to respond to refugee needs.
The Government of Spain has joined this initiative, despite being in coalition with Can, a party that has always expressed its sympathies for the Chavista regime, collaborating in advisory activities. One of its founders, Juan Carlos Pursewas very close to the late satrap Hugo Chavez, and always remembers him on the anniversaries of his death, in addition to taking huge amounts of money from the regime. AND Pablo Iglesias came to manifest of the Spaniards residing in Venezuela “I’m so envious” and recommended the same Bolivarian policies for southern Europe.
