Delegate of United States of America: We Are Obliged to Help Venezuela With International Assistance
As the international community, what exactly is the right solution to help Venezuela?

Jakarta, Aug 2 (Reuters) - The delegation of the United States of America openly stated that Venezuela violated article (7) of the Rome Statute and layered articles in the ICCPR, namely articles (4), (6), (7), and (8). This became the main foundation for why the USA claimed that the international community had an obligation to protect others, especially international law.
"We are not suggesting intervention, but we are obliged to have the obligation to protect civilians in Venezuela, one of which is by re-election under international supervision," Delegates of USA said.
This opinion is not in line with what the Delegates of Russia convey. According to Delegates of Russia, intervention is not necessary if the Venezuelan people do not need it. Humanitarian aid and international assistance continue to take place for Venezuela, but the international actors involved question the politicization of this assistance.
In order to be free from the problems of the internal and external government of Venezuela and their refugees, NGOs are expected to help minimize this politicization, stated by the Delegates of China and supported by Delegates of Indonesia.
But the heat of this debate was also coupled with Russia's claim that Venezuela needed military assistance because the United States is slowly declaring military threat, starting from this intervention in the name of international diplomacy. This triggers the heating up of the USA because it is considered a big accusation.
This heated debate continues because of differences of opinion which are still interspersed with different definitions of torture, the enthusiasm of delegates that enliven the atmosphere of debate, and proposals for solutions that are too diverse.
Is Maduro guilty or not, where the actual politicization is, and what is the right solution for massive emigration that has not yet come to light. These rows of questions are still flying in the heads of the delegates and the debate will still be continued at the next committee session.
