Venezuela rejects U.S. official´s statement

Caracas, Jan 9 (Prensa Latina) Venezuela's Minister of People's Power for Foreign Affairs Yván Gil on Monday rejected the statements made by the U.S. State Department's Assistant Secretary for Western Hemisphere Affairs Brian Nichols.

In response to a tweet from Nichols, the Venezuelan diplomat pointed out that if Washington championed Venezuelan democracy, it would have lifted the coercive measures and returned assets and resources that belong to the Venezuelan people.

On the contrary, Gil posted on Twitter, the United States really defends a criminal operation to plunder Venezuela disguised as an institution, which does not even exist.

Nichols expressed in a message on Twitter that his country “supports those who bravely defend the Venezuelan democracy”, while noting that “new attacks against the opposition, including against members of the @AsambleaVE, hamper democratic solutions for Venezuela. Efforts should focus on a path to free and fair elections in 2024,” he opined.

In a press conference on Monday, the first Vice-President of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV) Diosdado Cabello assured that the only existing National Assembly in Venezuela is the one presided by Deputy Jorge Rodríguez elected last week.

Cabello stressed the opposition lives in another world because their interests are different and the sad part of this case is that as one accuses the other and the other accuses the next, they are all right, because “they are really crooks, who got there thinking that it was the time to get rich”.

They divided up the country, allowed not only Venezuela’s assets to be lost but our people to be punished, Cabello expressed in reference to the National Assembly that ruled during the 2015-2020 period.
