In the face of a new attempt by the Brazilian Government to overlook the institutions of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Minister of People’s Power for Foreign Affairs Jorge Arreaza demanded his Brazilian counterpart Ernesto Araújo to respect the Venezuelan people.
On his Twitter account @jaarreaza, the Venezuelan diplomat addressed Foreign Minister Araújo:
“It is more useful for you to keep on devoting your time to adulating and praising your idol,” U.S. President Donald Trump, and “your partner in crime,” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
After the installation of Venezuela’s legitimate National Assembly (AN) on January 5, when the members elected in the December 6 parliamentary elections were sworn in, the Brazilian diplomat again tried to overlook the will of the Venezuelan people by supporting former AN member Juan Guaidó and his extreme right group, whose constitutional term already ended in the National Assembly.
“Mind Brazil’s grave domestic issues. Respect the Venezuelan people and accept that the coup you supported failed,” stressed Foreign Minister Arreasa on his Twitter account.
Araújo tried to justify his support to the Venezuelan opposition by claiming that “the extension of current parliamentary terms is supported by the Venezuelan Constitution and a legitimate decision of the Supreme Court.”
In this regard, the Venezuelan diplomat questioned: “What is the article of the Constitution of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela on which you based such an unlawful claim?”
“Act like a true Foreign Minister. Enough of such flat-Earth claims!” added Arreaza.
