Caracas.-Mr. Mohammad Barkindo, Secretary General to the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) was interviewed by TeleSur channel, and once more stood up the outstanding role that Venezuela has been playing since OPEC foundation 61 years ago.

In this sense, Mr. Barkindo highlighted the increased role of Mr. Juan Pablo Pérez Alfonso in the birth of the organization, its rescue headed by Commander Supreme Hugo Chávez and the current leadership of President Nicolás Maduro to face the challenges of the oil market during year 2016, and those caused by the Covid-19 pandemic during year 2020.

In this respect, he assured that the effort deployed by the Venezuelan President was vital to establish the framework of the Declaration of Cooperation, by recognizing the importance of adding some other big Non-OPEC producing countries to build common policies aiming at the recovery of the world energy market stability, having as a result the concretion of the OPEC+.

A unique and historic Alliance, by means of which mechanisms for decision-taking and their subsequent monitoring have been designed to set the foundations for a sustained and progressive recovery of hydrocarbons fair value.

"We have marked a historic milestone within the OPEC and the world oil industry, because for the first time in the 61 years of the organization, we are working with non-member countries (…) and, thanks to Venezuela and President Nicolás Maduro, all this was possible", pointed out Mr. Barkindo.

Mr. Barkindo made reference to a recent study made by OPEC, saying that "the world will continue consuming oil and gas in the future".

In this sense, he highlighted the Venezuela's strategic position as owner of the world's largest oil reserves, which qualified as "necessary" to fight against energy poverty in African continent countries, so they may reach the Sustainable Development Objectives (SDO) approved by the United Nations.

He assured that the unilateral coercive measures imposed by the government of the United States limit the contribution of our country to counterattack this reality. "The sanctions against Venezuela are also sanctions against Africa and other parts of the world, which have no access to these resources, but we hope this situation shall be positively solved", said Mr. Barkindo.
