Argentina Sends First Humanitarian Aid Shipment to Venezuela

first_imgBy Juan Delgado/Diálogo May 20, 2019 In light of the serious crisis in Venezuela, the Argentine government sent a first shipment of humanitarian aid to the Latin American nation. The donation fell under the Management Unit to Support Venezuela’s Reconstruction, created in February to assist with humanitarian aid and to meet the needs of Venezuelans. A 26-ton shipment left Buenos Aires by sea for Cartagena de Indias, Colombia, on April 16, the Argentine Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Worship (MREC, in Spanish), responsible for the Management Unit, said in a press release. Oil, canned food, rice, and lentils were part of the donations. The Argentine authorities estimate that the shipment will reach Colombia May 18, before continuing onwards to Venezuela, provided the illegitimate Maduro regime does not steal it or does not allows its entry. “This way, Argentina renews its commitment to help with the humanitarian crisis the Venezuelan people are going through,” MREC said. Another 3-tons of humanitarian aid is set to be shipped in mid-May from Buenos Aires to Cúcuta, on the Colombian border with Venezuela, said Alejandro Daneri, president of the White Helmets Commission, a civil humanitarian organization, part of MREC, that supports the Management Unit. Elisa Trotta Gamus, Venezuela’s diplomatic representative in Argentina appointed by Interim President Juan Guaidó, thanked Argentina for its support. “We continue to work together for Venezuela. The humanitarian crisis in our country is a fact, and we must continue to collaborate from our spaces,” Trotta said. Humanitarian situation “We remain concerned about the humanitarian situation in Venezuela, which is a tragedy. The Venezuelan people are in the midst of a calamity,” Daneri told Diálogo. “We continue to work with the Venezuelan communities in Argentina to sort, store, and manage warehouses, with donated supplies that will be sent to Venezuela.” The Venezuelan humanitarian crisis worsens by the day. The health system has collapsed, and Venezuelans suffer from extreme poverty and food insecurity. The crisis has also caused a major wave of migration, with millions of Venezuelans fleeing to other countries in the region. According to the Organization of American States, there are more than 3 million Venezuelan refugees in Latin America — more than 1 million in Colombia alone — and there could be more than 5 million by late 2019. “We have fought for humanitarian assistance, so that we can address the emergency caused by the usurper, because out commitment is to the well-being of our people. Thank you, Argentina! Venezuelans will repay this solidarity and support,” said Guaidó via Twitter.last_img read more

Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine won’t be ready by US election: Report

first_imgUS biotech firm Moderna won’t seek an emergency use authorization for its coronavirus vaccine before November 25, its CEO told the Financial Times on Wednesday.The news deals a blow to President Donald Trump’s hopes of having an injection ready before the election to give his campaign a much-needed boost.Stephane Bancel told the newspaper: “November 25 is the time we will have enough safety data to be able to put into an EUA file that we would send to the FDA [Food and Drug Administration] — assuming that the safety data is good, i.e. a vaccine is deemed to be safe.” Trump, whose approval has taken a hit over his handling of the COVID-19 crisis, has frequently hinted a vaccine could be ready before the November 3 vote.This has raised concern among experts that his administration may attempt to interfere with the regulatory process for political reasons.The Republican repeated his claim on Tuesday night, during a debate with his Democratic rival, former vice president Joe Biden.”It’s a possibility that we’ll have the answer before November 1,” he said. Moderna’s vaccine is one of 11 experimental vaccines in final stage trials.Another is being developed by Pfizer, whose CEO Albert Bourla has taken the position that his company may have a clear answer about whether their shot works by October.Most experts are skeptical of the claim, believing that the ongoing trials will not have sufficient statistical data to prove the drug’s safety and effectiveness by that time.Speaking to the Washington Post on Tuesday, Bourla denied he was attempting to curry favor with the president by making his October claim.”For me, the election day is an artificial day. The end of October is an artificial day. This is how we operate. If we can bring it earlier, we will,” he said.center_img Topics :last_img read more

CAS to announce Man City Champions League ban decision on July 13

first_img Loading… Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has confirmed it will announce a decision on Manchester City and their appeal against a Champions League ban on July 13. The Switzerland-based body will confirm the verdict at 10:30 local time on Monday, it said in a statement on Friday. City’s hearing at CAS began on June 8 and concluded two days later, with proceedings having been conducted by video call. The Premier League club are seeking to overturn UEFA’s decision to ban them from European competition for the next two seasons and fine them €30million (£27.2m) after finding them guilty of “serious breaches” of Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations. City have persistently denied wrongdoing in relation to the matter, which stemmed from a series of articles published by Der Spiegel in November 2018, drawing on information purportedly obtained by the whistleblower Football Leaks. “The club has always anticipated the ultimate need to seek out an independent body and process to impartially consider the comprehensive body of irrefutable evidence in support of its position,” read a statement at the time from City, who UEFA said had “failed to cooperate” with the investigation. Speaking on Friday, City manager Pep Guardiola said he had faith in the club’s chances of success in their appeal. “I’m so confident because I saw the arguments of the club that next season we will be there [in Champions League],” he said. In an interview with HLN, star midfielder Kevin De Bruyne suggested he might be happy to stay at City in the event of a reduction to a one-year ban, although a two-year Champions League absence would force him to consider his options. “I’m just waiting,” he said. “The club told us they are going to appeal, and they are almost 100 percent sure they are right. That’s why I’m waiting to see what will happen. I trust my team. read also:UCL draw: It’s nightmare for Man City with Juve and Bayern Munich or Barcelona blocking their path“Once the decision is made, I will review everything. Two years would be long, but in the case of one year I might see.” Manchester City currently sit second in the Premier League, with Liverpool having already clinched the league title. City, who maintain a nine-point lead over third-place Chelsea, will face Brighton on Saturday. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 last_img read more
