Venezuela rejects UK intrusion

Caracas, June 21 (Prensa Latina) Venezuela has slammed as an intrusion a message the Government of the United Kingdom sent to Caracas' Embassy in London.

In a statement, Caracas called the letter  rude and arrogant, daring to “question internal processes of a sovereign country and taking sides with a criminal and extremist political class, serving imperial interests.”

It stressed that the United Kingdom’s support for the Venezuelan far-right is a wake-up call about the pretensions of said groups, which compromised the country, “allying themselves with foreign powers and handing over assets.”

The note mentioned among them the gold seized in the Bank of England, the promotion of illicit sanctions and illegal actions against its own people.

The Venezuelan Government stated that “under no circumstances will it allow the dispossession of Guayana Esequiba to be perpetrated, an action attempted by that decadent empire for more than 150 years.”

It commented that the will of the Venezuelan people, expressed unanimously in the constitutional referendum of December 3, 2023, “is a mandate that ratifies the independence and sovereignty of the Homeland.”

Finally, Caracas demanded that the United Kingdom “stop its insolent position and respect the rights achieved” by Venezuela, through its independence, consecrated more than 200 years ago, when European imperialism was expelled from these lands.
