The Government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela denounces and condemns the celebration of an unusual reunion that took place in Bali, in the framework of the IMF meeting, in which the finances Ministers of Germany, Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, France, Guyana, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Panama, Paraguay and the United Kingdom participated, called and directed by the Secretary of the Treasury of the United States, with the aim of increasing the diplomatic and financial aggressions towards the Venezuelan people.
With this type of actions of open international conspiracy, the American government continues to give signs of its immeasurable and inhuman obsession against Venezuela, without thinking of the damage caused to the majority of the Venezuelan population through the criminal financial blockade, which pretends to add other governments that, without shame, subordinate to it.
The People and the Government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela stand firm in defense of the political and integral sovereignty and in the development of the Economic Recovery, Growth and Prosperity Program, under the fundamental premise which reserves its natural resources for the general benefit of the Venezuelan people and not to feed the capitalistic neo-colonial systems as it happened for decades, before the coming to power of the Bolivarian Revolution.
The ruling elite of the United States and its small group of satellite countries, will be isolated in their determination of destroying the Venezuelan economy, while Venezuela diversifies its economic and financial relations with the most important consolidated and emerging potencies, committed with the mutual benefit and peace, developing alternative markets and promoting the creation of a global balanced and multipolar order.
