Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza denounces U.S lies about its ties with illegal incursion against Venezuela
Minister of People’s Power for Foreign Affairs Jorge Arreaza wrote on his Twitter account @jaarreaza that Donald Trump’s government lies aboutits ties with the recent illegal incursion against Venezuela by mercenaries, who were captured by Venezuelan security forces and confessed they were financed by the United States to attack President Nicolás Maduro.
“Trump is eager to look like Kennedy by pretending to be him even in his lies. Just like Trump is responding today, in 1961, after the attack by mercenaries against Cuba from the United States, Kennedy shamelessly denied his participation, but later evidence showed they were behind it,” Arreaza wrote.
In this regard, the Venezuelan foreign minister recalled the words of former U.S. President John F. Kennedy in 1961 after the attempted invasion in Playa Girón, Cuba, after declassified documents proved them to be lies.
“While refraining from military intervention in Cuba, the people of the United States do not conceal their admiration for Cuban patriots,” said former U.S. President John F. Kennedy.
Deafening silence of international governments and organizations
The Venezuelan foreign minister also complained about the silence of international governments and organizations that claim to be worried about the situation in Venezuela while they support the U.S. aggression against the Venezuelan people through the imposition of unilateral coercive measures.
“The same who always condemn us on the basis of biased and fake information today keep silence in the face of a serious case against which we have full evidence,” he stated.
In recent days, U.S. mercenary and former green beret Luke Denman confessed their plan was to abduct President Nicolás Maduro.
“I was hired to come to Caracas (…) The only instructions I received (…) were that I should make sure to take control of the airport for safe passage transfer of Maduro and receiving airplanes,” Denman revealed.
The mercenary also explained he saw the operation contract “signed by Jordan Goudreau, Juan José Rendón and Juan Guaidó,”and that he would receive a $50,000 to $100,000 payment to perpetrate terrorist actions.
