The United Nations of Earth reporting on this issue: "Nicaragua, Venezuelan Refugees & other topics - Daily Briefing (9 Jun 2021)"
The topics: Noon briefing by St├ęphane Dujarric, Spokesperson for the Secretary-General. Highlights: - Secretary-General - Nicaragua - Venezuelan Refugees  - Afghanistan  - Pakistan  - Myanmar  - Central African Republic  - Ethiopia  - Viet Nam  - Noon Briefing Guests Tomorrow  NICARAGUA I’ve been asked about the latest development on Nicaragua and I can tell you that the Secretary-General is very concerned by the recent arrests and detentions, as well as the invalidation of candidacies of opposition leaders in Nicaragua. These developments can seriously undermine the public’s confidence in the democratic process ahead of the November general elections. The Secretary-General reiterates his call for a broad-based agreement on measures towards credible, participatory, and inclusive elections in November. He also calls on the authorities to fully respect Nicaragua’s international human rights obligations and also calls on the authorities to release the political leaders and restitute their political rights. VENEZUELAN REFUGEES The UN Refugee Agency today warned that the onset of winter, compounded by the devastating effects of the pandemic, poses a direct threat to the health and livelihoods of Venezuelan refugees and migrants. Nearly two million Venezuelan refugees and migrants have settled in Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay, Peru and Uruguay. As temperatures drop, Venezuelans face increasing poverty, evictions and protection risks. Ahead of an International Donors’ Conference for refugees and migrants from Venezuela, hosted by Canada on 17 June, UNHCR is calling on countries to pledge support. The Regional Response Plan for refugees and migrants from Venezuela remains critically underfunded.
