Venezuelan president considered Carabobo’s military scenario imposing

Caracas, Jun 24 (Prensa Latina) Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro considered the imposing Carabobo savannah as the scenario of the most extraordinary military action in the country's history, on the 203rd anniversary of that epic battle.

On his X profile, the head of State emphasized that this combat, which lasted nearly six hours, fought by El Libertador, “sealed national independence.”

Today, in light of a new challenge for the Homeland, the immortal harangue by father (Simón) Bolívar resounds throughout the country, calling us once again to fight and win, Maduro, who is also the commander-in-chief of the Bolivarian National Armed Forces, said.

Venezuelan Minister of Defense Vladimir Padrino, in turn, pointed out in another post that the Battle of Carabobo is the most notable act of arms in this country and became the Day of the Bolivarian Army, the one that crossed its borders to give freedom to other peoples.

“Today, that Army continues to fight battles in defense of the Homeland. The Army is the ARMY!” he wrote.

He noted in another message that on June 24, 1821, the genius of Simón Bolívar, together with the Liberation Army, “would defeat the Spaniards in the savannah of Carabobo, giving way to the liberating campaign of the south.”

Padrino, who is also the sectoral vice president for Sovereignty, Security and Peace, affirmed that 203 years later, “that feat continues to be a beacon of light to defeat imperialism and its lackeys. Long live the Homeland!”

Foreign Minister Yván Gil stated that the Battle of Carabobo was a historic milestone in which Bolívar and the Liberation Army won the victory over the royalist forces, paving the way for independence.
