Coronavirus (228) The New Humanitarian: Venezuela (2)

26 March, 2020

Dear Neil and friends

It’s really bad there, but the author of the message forgot to mention that the World Bank in Washington provided the fastest decision in its whole history when it said “No” to a request by Venezuela to have a loan from the Bank. The political game being played by the big guys does not respect humans at all. Take the example of Italy, Spain and Serbia being abandoned by the EU.

Best regards.
