Caracas, Feb 26 (Prensa Latina) Parallel to the 43rd Session of the United Nations Human Rights Council, Venezuelan Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza has had a busy working agenda in Geneva.

According to reports from the Foreign Ministry, Arreaza held several bilateral meetings with the delegations of Palestine, Russia, Cuba, India, South Africa and other countries.

One of the most important meetings was the one he held with Palestinian Foreign Minister Riad Malki, to whom Arreaza reaffirmed Venezuela's support for the cause of that Arab State. The two diplomats also review the state of bilateral relations.

After participating in the High-Level Segment, the head of Venezuelan diplomacy exchanged viewpoints with Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez, according to the source.

The two diplomats talked about the multilateral event and bilateral cooperation, which were consolidated by Commanders Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro, after the signing of the Comprehensive Agreement 20 years ago.

In their speeches at the Human Rights Councils, the two foreign ministers denounced the tightening of the US blockade against their peoples, and expressed mutual solidarity.

Arreaza also met Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, with whom he discussed issues related to the international geopolitical context and bilateral relations. Lavrov expressed his country's support for National Dialogue in Venezuela.

The Venezuelan minister also met separately with South African Deputy Foreign Minister Alvin Botes, and his Indian peer, Vikas Swarup.
