Bolivarian Government repudiates harassment of the United States against vice president Tareck El Aissami

The Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela rejects the permanent harassment by the US government against Venezuelan institutions and authorities, through a wide range of pseudo-legal measures featuring its unilateral nature and coercive purpose, and openly violating the fundamental rules of International Law.

As if such perverse practice was not enough – which directly affects the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela’s capacity to perform normal international trade transactions to provide the population with food, medicines and basic goods for the normal development of the economy and society – there is a further discredit campaign intended to undermine Venezuelan authorities’ dignity, including citizen Tarek El Aissami, vice-president of Economy and People’s Power Minister for Industry and National Production, in the list of “most wanted” people, leading to the serious affront of declaring the abovementioned high official of the national Government as a “fugitive” from an alleged justice that the USA tries to arrogate to itself.

By rejecting such serious accusation and ignoring no authority by the US government to perform it, the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela reiterates its support to comrade Tareck El Aissami, and informs that a complaint on these and other criminal actions by the US warmongering Administration and its lackeys shall be filed before the relevant international authorities.
