Regarding his participation in the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), Faria mentioned that he has held 46 meetings with representatives from various countries so far.
«President Maduro instructed us so that the Venezuelan message reaches others through the greatest number of meetings,» he said, explaining that one of his objectives is to denounce the consequences of unilateral sanctions on the situation of the Venezuelan people.
In these meetings, Faria also emphasized the importance of achieving peace in Ukraine because «we cannot allow this conflict to transcend its current borders.»
The Bolivarian minister indicated that the Venezuelan economy will grow 20 percent in 2022. This outcome will be possible thanks to the leadership of President Maduro and his team as well as to the creativity of Venezuelan workers.
