'If Venezuela asks for gasoline, we will provide it', said Lopez Obrador
Mexico, Jun 15 (Prensa Latina) Mexican President, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, said today that if Venezuela asked him for gasoline Mexico would provide it, but he clarified that the government of Nicolas Maduro has refrained from doing so until now.
In his daily conference, this time from Jalapa, Veracruz, the president was asked if the Bolivarian government of Venezuela had asked the Mexican government for support in the supply of gasoline as press reports mentioned, the president said categorically that it has not happened yet.
To the insistence of what he would respond if the request was made, Lopez Obrador responded without leaving any doubt that in case it happened it would be out of humanitarian need and we would do it because Mexico is a free, independent and sovereign country and we make our own decisions.
He said that Mexico does not interfere in the internal policies of other countries and its government is faithful to the principle of self-determination of peoples.
He was also very emphatic in stating that no one has the right to oppress other countries, and no hegemony can crush a nation.
