Arreaza rejects accusations that Venezuela interferes in Colombia
Caracas, May 6 (Prensa Latina) Venezuelan Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza on Wednesday rejected statements of some Latin American politicians who accused the Bolivarian government of protests rolled out in Colombia.
'They had taken a long time to blame Venezuela! These two individuals of a political species in the process of extinction, underestimate their peoples and quote each other to evade their guilt and incompetence. What a shame!', Arreaza tweeted.
Arreaza's statements come after former Colombian President Andrés Pastrana echoed Ecuadorian President Lenín Moreno´s accusations about Nicolás Maduro´s alleged accountability for demonstrations in that neighboring nation.
During his participation in the Forum for the Defense of Democracy, in Miami, United States, Lenín Moreno said the socio-political situation in Colombia is a consequence of Venezuelan government´s interference.
Colombian Institute of Studies for Development and Peace (INDEPAZ) confirmed on Wednesday that 31 people died in the national strike and social outbreak that shook Colombia for eighth straight day.
