Press Release: Ambassador Haley on the Foreign Minister of Venezuela Addressing the UN Human Rights Council

New York City
September 6, 2017


Responding to news reports that Venezuelan Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza Montserrat will address the UN Human Rights Council next week, Ambassador Nikki Haley made the following statement:

“The fact that Venezuela is even a member of the UN Human Rights Council shows the desperate need for HRC reform. Having the Venezuelan foreign minister address the Council makes a mockery of the institution. The Maduro regime continues to rob the Venezuelan people of their freedom and their prosperity. Rather than welcoming the Venezuelan foreign minister, the Human Rights Council should be denouncing his government.”
