30/11/2021 - HR/VP Blog – For years, Venezuela has been gripped by a political stalemate leading to a severe humanitarian crisis. Last Tuesday, our EU Election Observation Mission (EOM) made public its first findings on the country’s regional and municipal elections held on 21 November. To send this mission was a controversial decision, however I am convinced that it will contribute to help find a solution to the Venezuelan crisis through political dialogue.

Chair, Director General, Excellences and Distinguished Delegates,
I speak on behalf of the European Union and its Member States.
We thank the Director-General for his statement and the update on current activities.
However, before we turn to the present issues, allow me to extend on behalf of EU and its Member States our best wishes to IOM on its 70th birthday. Despite its advanced age it remains resilient, mobile and well governed. We remain committed to continuation of our strategic partnership in the future.
