The United Nations Organization for Education, Science and Culture (Unesco) approved the entry of Venezuela and Cuba as representatives of Latin America in its Executive Council for the period 2017-2021.

The four Caribbean members elected by Unesco are Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Grenada, Saint Lucia and Jamaica, which was formalized during the session of the Unesco Executive Board held at its headquarters in Paris, France.

The information was released by the Foreign Minister, Jorge Arreaza, through Twitter: "Important victory of Venezuela, Cuba and the Alba - Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America - in Unesco. Members of the Board of Directors we continue to strengthen multilateralism, there is no imperialist resistance that can beat our Bolivarian Diplomacy of Peace".

In another message, he explained that the vote for the two Latin American seats on the Unesco Council widely favored Cuba and Venezuela over Argentina, Colombia, Costa Rica and Peru. "We appreciate the support and confidence of the UN Member States that supported us."

"The six countries of Latin America and the Caribbean share the will to strengthen Unesco and its policies of educational and cultural inclusion, congratulations!" said Arreaza.

Venezuela's nomination was formalized by the Venezuelan Foreign Affairs Vice Minister, Rubén Darío Molina, last October.

The Executive Board of Unesco is the governing body in which the most important decisions are taken that directly and decisively influence the nature and orientation of the policies, programs and projects undertaken by the organization.
