Kawsachun News: Delcy Rodríguez on NATO’s Role in World Conflict The current crisis between Russia and Ukraine is a clear example of accumulated stealthy provocations that have broken the equilibrium between nuclear powers. China’s Foreign Minister rightly said that a lake does not freeze over in a day. Guarantees have been deliberately disregarded for NATO to stop moving towards the borders of one of the parties to the conflict with its nuclear warheads, sacrificing not only the people of Ukraine, but also the peoples of Europe and the world in general.

Venezuela joins the voices calling for a peaceful and dialogued solution to this conflict. Avoiding suffering to the peoples of the parties involved is an imperative necessity.
