Note Verbale N. 27-2022
The United States Mission to the UN Agencies in Rome presents its compliments to the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD).
The United States extends its appreciation to the outgoing Chair of the Bureau of IFAD’s Governing Council for noting for the record the United States’ abstention on accepting the nominations of the individuals put forward by their respective Lists to serve on the Bureau of IFAD’s Governing Council.
With this Note Verbale, the United States underscores our objection to the participation in the Bureau by the representative of the illegitimate Maduro regime. The United States recognizes the legal authority of the democratically elected 2015 National Assembly and the person chosen by this National Assembly to serve as the constitutional interim President of Venezuela, Juan Guaidó. We look forward to collaborating in the future with a delegation that represents a legitimately elected government of Venezuela.
The United States Mission to the UN Agencies in Rome avails itself of this opportunity to renew to the International Fund for Agricultural Development the assurances of its highest consideration.
