Venezuela rejects a communiqué from the US State Department

Caracas, Mar 28 (Prensa Latina) The Venezuelan Government rejected on Thursday a US communiqué, and deemed that the heads of the operation against the nation finally show their face.

An official communiqué from the Venezuelan Ministry of Foreign Affairs denounced that, as the owners of a circus, Washington “is trying to dismiss and delegitimize the upcoming presidential elections” of July 28.

The Venezuelan Ministry pointed out that in view of the soundness of the domestic electoral system, proven in over 30 elections since 1998, the White House intends to “minimize the participation of 37 political forces” at national level, which covered the broad ideological spectrum existing in that nation.

It further stated that 13 presidential candidacies had been registered in the nomination process, including 12 identified as opposition.

The text indicated that the United States seeks to hide the fact that it was “the internal dynamics of the Venezuelan opposition” that ended up displacing political sectors committed to terrorist, unconstitutional, anti-democratic and violent actions.

It underscored that they repeatedly showed “no sincere intentions” to measure themselves electorally to the people, but rather to exercise actions in function of “guaranteeing the interests of both the United States” and the Venezuelan oligarchy.

Venezuela fully complied not only with the legal and constitutional regulations to conduct the next presidential elections, but also with every point of the agreement signed between the legitimate Government and the self-styled Unitary Platform, the document emphasized.

The Ministry referred that this contrasts with the “permanent sabotage against the Barbados Agreement (in past October) and the other agreements proposed in the direct dialogues between the Governments of the United States and the Bolivarian Republic.

The text noted that Venezuela is “proud of its electoral system and willing to maintain peace, economic growth and national political stability.”

It stressed that due to that new attempt by the U.S. State Department to take the path of extremism against Venezuelan democracy, “Bolivarian dignity will make them fail over and over again.”
