Foreign Minister Arreaza fustigates Pompeo’s cynicism about Venezuela
The FM of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Jorge Arreaza, fustigated the “message” addressed this Thursday by the Secretary of State of the United States “to the Venezuelan people” by which he ratifies Washington’s interventionist pretensions on Caracas.
“What kind of CYNICISM is that of Pompeo. They block our economy, threaten us with the use of force, attack our services, pressure companies and governments not to cooperate with Venezuela, steal the assets and resources of the Venezuelan people and then go out with this”, the diplomat said on his account on Twitter @jaarreaza.
The US Secretary of State reiterated on Thursday the intention of the Donald Trump’s administration to enter a supposed humanitarian aid – on which an intense media campaign has been orchestrated – into Venezuelan territory, which has been denounced by the National Executive as a facade for the intervention over the oil country.
He added that the United States will continue “working with Brazil and with Colombia and all countries in the region”.
On February 23, the Venezuelan State as a whole avoided a violation of national sovereignty with an operation directed by the US government using the Colombian territory as a platform.
The day was marked by the burning of the supposed “humanitarian aid” in Colombia, in the hands of sectors adverse to the Venezuelan Government.
