In the opinion of the Venezuelan head of state, this is an “absolute shame,” and he stated that Milei “has become, and will remain in history, the great accomplice of the genocide against the Palestinian people.”

“That will be written. Javier Milei, genocidal, will be written for the history of the history of history, and future generations, in Argentina and in the world, will remember Javier Milei (as a) genocidal coward,” said Maduro during the eleventh episode of his podcast.

Argentina was one of the nine countries that, on Friday, May 10, 2024, voted against a resolution declaring that the State of Palestine “is qualified for membership in the UN in accordance with Article 4 of the founding charter and must therefore be admitted as a member of the United Nations”; consequently, “recommends that the Security Council reconsider the matter favorably.”
