Venezuela delivers note of protest to Chilean ambassador

Caracas, Mar 22 (Prensa Latina) The Government of Venezuela delivered a note of protest to Chilean Ambassador in Caracas Jaime Gazmuri on Friday, following a statement from the Foreign Ministry of that South American State, it was learned on Friday.

The information was announced by the deputy foreign minister for Latin America at the Venezuelan Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Rander Peña, in a message published on his X account on Thursday night.

“It is unacceptable” that they stubbornly insist on meddling in the internal affairs of a sovereign country, collaborating with a systematic smear campaign against the Bolivarian Republic, he indicated.

Peña noted that the Bolivarian Executive “reminds the Chilean Government that, as a sovereign nation, through its competent justice bodies, it acts in accordance with the principles that emanate from the Constitution and national laws to guarantee the Venezuelan people’s peace and security.”

The Chilean Foreign Ministry issued a statement on Thursday in which it expressed “its firm condemnation of the arbitrary detention of representatives of Venezuelan opposition political parties.”

The Foreign Ministry pointed out that this act “is an action that is contrary to the democratic spirit that must prevail in any electoral process.”

It pointed out that the aforementioned measure seriously affects the holding of democratic, transparent and free presidential elections, with full participation of all candidates, contravening the Barbados Agreements, validated by the international community.
