Venezuela rejects Canadian government’s meddling
Minister of People’s Power for Foreign Affairs Jorge Arreaza rejected Wednesday the “interventionist path” taken by the Canadian government to meddle in the domestic affairs of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.
“New instructions were given by Washington to Ottawa. Canada once again takes an interventionist path by describing a criminal investigation as an ‘attack’. We wish they had shown concern about the real attack by mercenaries led by a Canadian-U.S. national,” posted the Venezuelan foreign minister on his Twitter account @jaarreaza.
Arreaza referred to statements delivered by Canadian Foreign Minister François-Philippe Champagne, who resumed his country’s meddling in Venezuela and advocated for an opposition legislative sector that signed a contract for a mercenary incursion into Venezuelan territory last May.
The words used by the Canadian diplomat resembles the message recently published by U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo about issues falling within the exclusive competence of the Venezuelan state.
