Bolivarian Government repudiates threats by Donald Trump against Venezuela to divert attention to the Covid-19 crisis
The Government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela strongly rejects the statements made by Donald Trump, his Secretary of Defense, his Attorney General and other members of his security team, who in an desperate attempt to divert attention away from the tragic humanitarian crisis that country is experiencing as a consequence of the erratic handling by its authorities of COVID-19, pretend to attack Venezuela with infamies and threats.
However, despite the aggressions and lies displayed against Venezuelan officials, the Government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela salutes that for the first time in decades, the authorities of the United States are willing to take action to safeguard their borders, historically permeable, neglected, and vulnerable to the thousands of tons of drugs that annually enter that country, originating in the drug trafficking industry that has developed in the territory of its ally and close partner, Colombia.
The robust anti-narcotic institutions that Venezuela relies upon, is ready to lend any necessary cooperation and coordination aimed at containing the advance of drug trafficking groups and organized crime in the region.
