Once again, the Government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela denounces the attempts by the supremacist elite ruling the White House to promote a coup d’état in Venezuela, attacking the Constitution, Democracy and Peace in the country.
This conspiracy, led by John Bolton, a National Security Adviser of the US government, tries to forcefully impose on the Venezuelan people a puppet government – as they unsuccessfully tried to do in 2002 – which mandate does not abide by the Constitution, nor the popular will, but the interests of the US multinational corporations.
While the Constitutional President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro, urges dialogue with respect between both countries, Bolton adopts the script of the coup-driven adventures historically present in the imperialist agenda, inducing sedition within a small sector of the Venezuelan right-wing, which has shown ineptitude in complying with the mandate given by the Venezuelan people to exercise the role of a democratic opposition.
The worst threat against the Venezuelan people security is undoubtedly the criminal blockade imposed by Washington. Therefore, Venezuela demands the end of all economic and diplomatic aggressions against its economy and democratic institutions, and reiterates that no matter how powerful pressures, threats and attacks are, the Bolivarian Government will never stop integrally defending the sovereignty of the Venezuelan people. Venezuela will use all its political, moral and constitutional Power to defeat imperialist aggression in all its forms and manifestations.
