(AVN) – The governments of Venezuela and Haiti agreed on Wednesday to reactivate the binational committee held between the two nations to finance development projects in Haitian territory through Petrocaribe’s Bolívar Petion joint venture, said the country’s chancellor, Jorge Arreaza.
After a meeting with his counterpart from Haiti, Antonio Rodrigue, at Casa Amarilla in Caracas, the minister stressed that Venezuela “respects the development projects of the signatory countries of Petrocaribe,” adding that this integration body “guarantees security energy of the peoples of the Caribbean and it has these financing mechanisms, as well as compensation.”
In statements transmitted by VTV, he indicated that the Committee may also determine the development of agricultural projects. “That production can end at the table of Venezuelans, of our families through the Clap (Local Committee of Supply and Production),” he said.
Arreaza, who ratified the support of Venezuela to the Caribbean nation, stressed that these agreements represent “fair and responsible trade, recognizing the realities of ours, and through a solidarity mechanism, such as Petrocaribe”.
For his part, the Haitian Foreign Minister said that the reactivation of the Committee is an important step for the Haiti-Venezuela relationship, since it is an instrument to develop projects in his country within the framework of Petrocaribe and will also provide “continuity with the energy cooperation mechanism”. ”
The chancellor of the land of Alexander Petion thanked the support that the National Government led by the head of State, Nicolas Maduro, and the Bolivarian Revolution provide to Haiti.
The internal team of both foreign ministers and the Venezuelan Petrocaribe team participated in the meeting.
