Someone whispered in Varela’s ear that Venezuela crisis might lead to immigration issue.

Immigration

The lessons learned from the migratory crises “force us today to reiterate the energetic call to the Government of Venezuela to regain political dialogue.” This was part of the message given this Wednesday, September 26, by the President of the Republic, Juan Carlos Varela , during the plenary session of the 73rd General Assembly of the United Nations.

Varela, in his last speech as president of Panama before this instance, said, referring to that South American nation, that he hoped that “in democracy they will find the social peace that will prevent the massive migration and the humanitarian crisis of Venezuelans from continuing to seek access to your basic needs. ”

Thousands of migrants from other continents cross our border with Colombia through the dangerous jungle of the Darién, risking their lives in search of the hope of making their dreams come true.

These migratory movements, he added, are only resolved by eliminating the causes that force citizens to leave their countries, risking their safety and that of their families.

He said that the countries have the responsibility to develop policies that allow the “controlled management of these migratory flows”, with respect for human dignity.

In passing, the president announced that, in the coming days, Panama will be announcing humanitarian measures that will support Venezuelan families residing in the isthmus.

“Panama is a mixture of citizens who have come from all over the world who have found their new home in this beautiful land, we have learned to live in peace, respecting all religious beliefs, political ideologies and thoughts,” he said.

He noted that, in this era of communication and social networks, there is no room for discrimination of any kind.

He also reiterated the call to the Government of Nicaragua and the social actors to find peace in the political dialogue.
