Valdai Club Meets with Foreign Minister of Venezuela
Conference Hall, Tsvetnoy boulevard, 16/1, Moscow, Russia
List of speakers

On June 22 at 10:00 a.m. Moscow Time (GMT+3), the Valdai Discussion Club will hold a meeting with Venezuelan Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza, as part of his visit to Russia.

The acute political struggle around Venezuela, accompanied by sanctions from Western countries, has remained a constant focus of the world community, as well as one of the key topics of modern international relations. The United States recognises the political ineffectiveness of the imposed sanctions, but continues to increase economic pressure, complicating ongoing humanitarian woes in Venezuela. According to Jorge Arreaza, the sanctions against Venezuela "are a crime against humanity".

The participants in the discussion will have a unique opportunity to get a first-hand account of Venezuela's foreign policy strategy, as well as the prospects for its relations with Russia.


  • Jorge Arreaza, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Venezuela;

  • Dmitry Razumovsky, Director of the Institute of Latin America of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
