The President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro Moros, on behalf of the Bolivarian People and Government, expresses his strongest repudiation and condemnation for the arbitrary decision of the US government to recognize the City of Jerusalem, illegally occupied by Israel, as capital of the State of Israel, as well as to transfer to that City its Embassy.

The Bolivarian Government of Venezuela rejects any arbitrary, unilateral and hasty action that seeks to strengthen the illegal presence of the State of Israel over the Occupied Palestinian Territory and its de facto annexation of the City of Jerusalem, actions that undermine the sovereignty of the State and the Palestinian people, undermine the peace and stability of the region, and tragically influence international efforts in search of a dialogued, peaceful, just and lasting solution.

The Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, from the Presidency of the Movement of Non-Aligned Countries (NAM), and as brother country of the just causes of the Arab world, considers this action a flagrant violation of International Law and calls to respect the Charter of the United Nations and all those resolutions of the Security Council and the General Assembly of the United Nations that have been approved in this regard, within the framework of the joint efforts of the International Community to move towards a dialogued solution and the cessation of hostilities and abuses against the Palestinian nation.

In that regard, with special emphasis on resolution 2334 (2016), in which the Security Council stated "that it will not recognize any change to the lines of June 4, 1967, with regard to Jerusalem, which are not those agreed upon by the parties through negotiations ", also calling on the parties" to refrain from acts of provocation and incitement and to make inflammatory statements in order, among other things, to escalate the situation on the ground, restoring confidence, demonstrating through policies and measures a genuine commitment to the two-State solution and creating the necessary conditions to promote peace".

The Bolivarian People, historically committed to the just cause of Palestine, takes the opportunity to reaffirm their unrestricted commitment to the achievement of a dialogued, peaceful and lasting solution to the conflict, as well as for the concretion of the full sovereignty and independence of the brotherly State of Palestine , reiterating its willingness to face together with the brave Palestinian people all those arbitrary and unjust actions that, like this one, undermine the inalienable rights of the Palestinian people, and only seek to continue sowing chaos in the Middle East region.
