The Government of Nicolás Maduro denounced on Thursday that the authorities of Argentina have not approved the necessary permits for the flight of the Venezuelans who are scheduled to return to their country on Friday as part of the "Return to the Fatherland" plan, which the Executive advances from Venezuela.
"We denounce that the government of Argentina has not approved the necessary permits for the humanitarian flight of #PlanVueltaALaPatria scheduled for tomorrow April 12, violating the human rights of 90 compatriots who want to return home, to their land: Venezuela," he said on Twitter the chancellor, Jorge Arreaza.
The "Vuelta a la Patria" plan is an initiative of the Maduro Government to assist Venezuelan migrants in situations of risk or vulnerability, who voluntarily approach the country's diplomatic offices requesting their inclusion in it.
The program was launched last September in the midst of the migratory wave of Venezuelans fleeing the country's economic, political and social crisis, which the Maduro government has denied.
The initiative also takes place in other Latin American countries such as Ecuador, Peru, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Chile, Brazil, among others.
Until mid-March, the Venezuelan Foreign Ministry handled a figure of more than 13,000 returned Venezuelans.
The return program has been criticized by the Secretary General of the Organization of American States (OAS), Luis Almagro, who called it a "lie" and an "immoral" act.
According to data published last February by the United Nations (UN), there are currently 3.4 million Venezuelans refugees and migrants in the world, of which 2.7 million are in Latin America.
