Caracas, April 3, 2020
To the People of the United States of America:
For weeks now, the world stands still, trying to control a pandemic that, without any doubt, is the greatest challenge we have faced together as a society and as international community. Our priority is confronting it, as is the priority of the people of the United States.
With the intention of strengthening economic and cooperation agreements between the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela and the Russian Federation, Executive Vice President Delcy Rodríguez held a meeting with Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov in Moscow.
Since its founding, Venezuela has been a country of solidarity, with the conscience of belonging to something greater, an immense nation, a power in the making that, had it consolidated itself legally, economically, and politically, it would have modified the “universal equilibrium”, the balance of power in international relations. Venezuela’s only military action outside of its borders was inevitably tied to its original right to self-determination as a sovereign people. Our soldiers reached inhospitable landscapes of Our America, always with the intention of expanding the feat of independence, with no aim for profit or glory or nothing different from the liberation from the imperial dominance of those times. Our leaders and armies of then, never aspired to loot or conquer territories for themselves. The only cause was, to share liberty, acquire independence, and simply, being free.
