LatAm decry Israeli attack on aid ship

Brazil: Brazil, Argentina, Venezuela and Chile vehemently condemned the Israeli attack, on international waters, against one of the six vessels of the Freedom Fleet carrying humanitarian aid to the Gaza Strip killing 19 pacifists.

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez , on behalf of his Government and country said their deep sorrow and condolences to the families of the victims of this crime.

“We promised to honour their memory and provide the necessary assistance and demand those responsible for these killings are severely punished”, he said.

Brazilian Government also expressed its concern about the situation of the Brazilian citizen, Iara Lee, travelling in the same fleet.

Argentina called to make a complete and thorough investigation of the facts, while Chile announced it will continue to evaluate the situation in the light of new information received from its diplomatic missions in the area.

“Chilean Chancellery will closely follow the extraordinary meeting of the Security Council that has been called by Turkey to be held this afternoon in New York”, a source said.

The tragic results of the Israeli military operation highlights, once again, the need to immediately lift the blockade on the Gaza Strip to ensure freedom of movement of people and free access to food, medicaments and goods to the region, says a press release issued by Brazilian Foreign Minister.

Latin America countries will continue denouncing terrorism and criminal nature of the Israeli Government, while it reiterates today more than ever its unwavering commitment to the Palestinian people’s struggle for freedom, national sovereignty and dignity.
