Venezuela stands in solidarity with the people of Puerto Rico in the face of devastating earthquake
The Government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela expresses its solidarity with the people of Puerto Rico in the face of the devastating consequences caused by the recent earthquake in the south of the island and its subsequent aftershocks causing the loss of at least one life, significant material losses and hundreds of people affected, as well as the collapse of the electrical system.
Natural disasters like this and like hurricanes that hit the Puerto Rican population in the not too distant past, serve to remind the international community of the importance of advancing in the process of decolonization of the Caribbean nation, and thus ensuring that Puerto Rico counts with the resources and autonomy necessary to be able to face these calamities.
On behalf of the Venezuelan people, the Bolivarian Government expresses its condolences to the families of the victims and fraternally accompanies the Puerto Rican people in such difficult circumstances.
