Emily Thornberry makes a slightly veiled move to colleagues who are behind Nicolás Maduro

Emily Thornberry made a vague change to colleagues who are behind Nicolás Maduro.

The Venezuelan socialist party leader and president is accused of torture and "disappearances" of political opponents.

The shadow secretary of foreign affairs will say that labor in power does not support governments "who call themselves socialists" but are responsible for "violations of human rights".

In a speech stating how the Ministry of Foreign Affairs will look under Labor, Thornberry will say "too long, and this was just as true of the former Labor Government as is the case for this conservative, there has been a serious tendency to patronize and punish those countries with which our trade relations and strategic alliances are less important – because their violations of human rights are safe to criticize and their violations of international law are easy to support UN resolutions – while the stronger countries have their own have had abuses and crimes that have been ignored and admitted.

"Well, kick-down and kiss-up has never been my personal style, and it would not be my policy as Secretary of State.

But she added: "Neither will we ever sound the other way: it's not about turning the tables around, but about treating both sides the same.

"So, under a Foreign Ministry of Labor, I can also guarantee that there is no indulgence in violations of human rights because they are committed by less powerful countries, or by governments that call themselves" socialist "but their actions betrayed every socialist ideal. "

Jeremy Corbyn and his political allies are long-term supporters of Hugo Chavez and welcomed the election of his successor in 2013.

Should we impose sanctions on Venezuela?

Since then, Maduro has relied on the military to maintain power, inflation has increased by 80,000% last year and six out of 10 Venezuelans say they went to bed hungry because they did not have the money to buy food.

Last week, the Labor leader turned to Jeremy Hunt for demanding sanctions against the Maduro regime.

He refused to interrupt Mr Maduro's calls and claim: "The future of Venezuela is a matter for the Venezuelans."

Last Thursday, on Thursday, the European Union recognized opposition leader Juan Guaidó as interim president instead of Maduro.

The US also recognized Guaidó's leadership.
