BUENOS AIRES, December 23. /TASS/. International community of developing countries known as the Group of 77 and China (G77 + China) condemns the U.S. sanctions against a number of Venezuelan government officials, President Evo Morales of Bolivia said on Monday.
Bolivia currently holds a term of rotating presidency of the association that functions within the format of the UN.
Morales said G77 + China had passed a resolution calling for an urgent revocation of sanctions against Venezuela as they undermined the UN Charter and international law, including the principle of non-interference in the domestic affairs of sovereign countries.
G77 + China urged the international community to take efficacious steps towards preventing a unilateral use of coercive economic measures against the developing countries, Morales said.
U.S. Congress passed a bill earlier that envisioned new unilateral sanctions against Venezuela. President Barack Obama signed it into law last week.
First and foremost, the law bans the issuance of U.S. entry visas to the former and incumbent Venezuelan officials whom Washington holds responsible for what it believes to be encroachments on human rights.
G77 + China is a large international association of developing countries created at a conference of foreign ministers of Asian, African and Latin American developing nations in 1964.
At the initial stages of its history, it had seventy-seven members and the fact offered the reason for its name but its current membership has risen to 133.
