“Colombia and Venezuela normalize their diplomatic relations with the appointment of their ambassadors Armando Benedetti in Caracas and Felix Plasencia in Bogota. We welcome the meeting of two brotherly peoples who resume the path of integration. The #PatriaGrande (Great Homeland) advances with dignity and freedom,” the leader of the Movement for Socialism (MAS) wrote on his Twitter account.
Morales warned on Thursday on that social network that the United States is preparing destabilizing actions against the new presidency of Gustavo Petro.
“We denounce that in the destabilizing actions by the United States are being prepared against the presidency of brother @petrogustavo and other socialist governments. Senator @tedcruz, financed by arms manufacturers and promoter of coups d’état, is accusing the people of lies against the people of Colombia,” he added.
Morales recalled that Cruz, together with Congressman @marcorubio, defends the coup d’état in Bolivia and now falsely accuses the Colombian people of “threatening and endangering the security of the United States” together with other countries in the region for having elected leftist governments democratically.
The former Bolivian president stressed that this warning from the mouth of a senator accused of being involved in the assault on the US Capitol, which resulted in five deaths is a direct threat to democracy in Latin America.
Not content with the blockades against Cuba and Venezuela, now he is calling for a carrot and stick policy, Morales warned.
