Venezuela rejects cynical US signal regarding fight against terrorism
The Government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela categorically rejects the cynical accusation of Donald Trump’s supremacist government, by pretending to label Venezuela as a State that does not cooperate in the fight against terrorism, just days after having suffered an armed incursion for terrorist purposes, which included the participation of American mercenaries and companies.
Washington has repeatedly demonstrated its contempt for international law on terrorism. Faced with the disbelief of the world and even of its own Congress, the United States intends to hide its permanent non-compliance and violation of resolutions of the Security Council and the United Nations General Assembly, by providing refuge to terrorists, refusing to implement mutual assistance agreements in criminal matters, violate the principle of extradition or trial to those accused of terrorism and provide financial, logistical and training support to those guilty of these crimes.
It cannot claim to evaluate, much less certify the conduct of a country in this delicate matter, the main sponsor of terrorism in the world. It is no secret to anyone that the emergence and actions of terrorist groups in the Middle East has the original signature of the United States intelligence agencies.
Ideologizing anti-terrorist cooperation is nothing more than a flight forward and a strategy of aggression towards independent countries, which believe in Peace. Venezuela hopes that the United Nations Security Council and the International Criminal Court will rigorously investigate the role Washington has played in promoting terrorist practices, establishing responsibilities and making the most elementary principles of international law prevail.
