FANB ratifies its commitment in defense of the Homeland and peace
The People’s Power Minister for Defense, Vladimir Padrino López, ratified the commitment of the Bolivarian National Armed Forces (FANB), with the effective defense of the Homeland and the peace of all the Venezuelan people, before the destabilization plans directed by the United States to violate the sovereignty of the country.
“Situations have been presented that forece the FANB to establish a position, a position that will always be attached to the Constitution to the laws and values that move us, the values of the Homeland”, he said from the Simón Bolívar Room of the Ministry for the Defense, located in the Fort Tiuna Military Complex.
Likewise, Padrino López, denounced that the US administration intends to perpetrate a coup d’état that threatens the harmony and sovereignty of the nation.
“For a long time ago, a coup d’état has been brewing against the legitimately constituted government, by sectors of the right, sponsored by imperial agents, a criminal plan that threatens the sovereignty and peace of the nation”, he said.
Also, the Minister said that before the self-proclamation of the opposition leader, Juan Guaidó, as interim president could trigger “very dangerous events” and he alerted the Venezuelan people about what happened in 2002.
“What happened yesterday is a reprehensible event, a man raising his hand, self-proclaimed president, is a serious matter that threatens the rule of law”, he said.
Finally, the also vice-president of Political, Security and Peace Sovereignty, said that the FANB is prepared to avoid a confrontation between Venezuelans and that dialogue is the only way to achieve stability and peace.
“We are here to avoid at all costs a confrontation between Venezuelans, it is not a war between brothers that is going to solve the problems, it is through dialogue … we will not do anything outside the Constitution”, he said.
