Caracas, 04 May. AVN.- The Government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela condemned the meddling statements of United States president Barack Obama, who refused to recognize the constitutional government of president Nicolas Maduro.
A communique read by foreign minister Elias Jaua in nationwide radio and television hookup on Saturday affirms that "Venezuela condemns with the strength of the Bolivarian dignity the statements said by the president of the United States, Barack Obama, who attacks once again the legitimate government of Venezuela."
"According to our view the Venezuelan people must elect their leaders in legitimate elections," said Obama during his visit to Mexico, where he also affirmed to have reports of alleged shortage of "human rights, democracy, freedom of the press and freedom of meeting" in Venezuela.
In the face of such statements, Venezuelan president Nicolas Maduro said that Obama's visit to Latin American nations was arranged to be carried out after a series of violent actions in Venezuela, against its people and state-run institutions, so as to raise the need for an intervention.
As a matter of fact, he said that violence was provoked on behalf of opposing deputies in parliament on April 30 and violent actions were planned for May 1, during the workers' march. Obama arrived in Mexico on May 2.
"It was planned so that in Venezuela would occur, two days before his arrival in Mexico and Costa Rica, serious violent events. That is the reason why we saw the violent provocations on April 30," Maduro stressed.
