The Venezuelan Foreign Ministry issued a new statement this Sunday, January 13, accusing the US government of "attempts to instigate a coup in Venezuela," according to the foreign minister of the Republic, Jorge Arreaza, in his report. Twitter.
Arreaza has published on the social network the statement that accused the national security adviser of the US government, John Bolton, of trying to "impose by force a puppet government in Venezuela, whose mandate does not respond to the Constitution".
Here is the complete declaration:
The government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela once again denounces the attempts by the supremacist elite that controls the White House to promote a coup in Venezuela, attacking the Constitution, Democracy and Peace in the country.
This conspiracy, led by John Bolton, national security adviser to the US government, tries to force the Venezuelan people to force a puppet government whose mandate does not respond to the Constitution, nor to the popular will, but to the interests of US multinationals, as they tried without success in 2002.
While the Constitutional President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, urges dialogue with respect between the two countries, Bolton in turn embraces the script of the coup adventure, historically included in the imperialist agenda, for which he induces sedition of a small sector of the Venezuelan right, which showed ineptitude in respecting the mandate given by the Venezuelan people to exercise the role of a democratic opposition.
The biggest security threat to the Venezuelans is undoubtedly the criminal blockade imposed by Washington. Therefore, Venezuela demands the end of all economic and diplomatic aggression against its economy and democratic institutions, while reiterating that, regardless of how powerful the pressures, threats and attacks are, the Bolivarian government will never give in to full defense of the sovereignty of the Venezuelan people. Venezuela will use all its political, moral and constitutional power to defeat imperialist aggression in all its forms.
