“It is necessary to carry out communication campaigns to counteract how much psychological warfare exists, which aims to demobilize, demoralize, demotivate and make people feel, in some cases, ashamed of being Venezuelan.” This was indicated by the Head of State, Nicolás Maduro, this Wednesday.
He stated that “there are campaigns in the world against Venezuela to permanently persecute Venezuelans. These actions have two intentions, the first to shame Venezuelans and the second to blame everything that happens in other countries where there are Venezuelans. , to them”.
“We turn out to be the culprits of all the ills of capitalism Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Chile, for example. All the ills, such as the lack of social security, health, housing and others want to show that it is the fault of our people” , he denounced.
The Venezuelan Government categorically rejected the pronouncements of its Colombian counterpart about the recent and unfortunate events that occurred on the border with that country in Apure state. The New Granada government expressed its alleged concern over the actions undertaken by the Bolivarian National Armed Forces, which, in the exercise of its national sovereignty, lost two troops in combat with irregular forces.
“The abandonment of the borders by the Colombian State is a proven fact, granting a more than tacit consent to the actions of various criminal groups that operate in the area,” says the statement from the Venezuelan Government.
Later he denounces that “the government of Iván Duque, with the support of the US Southern Command and its recently created elite group of seven thousand troops, has installed a corridor of illegal activities such as human trafficking, illegal mineral exploitation and drug trafficking. , destined to finance the instrumentalization of these armed groups against Venezuela ”.
It clarifies that the operations of the FANB have been developed in rural areas against “illegal camps of Colombian armed groups” financed to settle in the area, and that they have the support of the Venezuelan people, who repudiate the violence “derived from more than seventy years of the Colombian war ”.
He denounces that in view of the actions of the FANB “upon being defeated, these armed groups have used the population as a human shield to flee to Colombia, where they are not persecuted, since they have the tolerance and protection of the authorities of that country.”
The statement closes by guaranteeing that the State Security Forces will continue to “effectively seek peace within the national territory,” while ensuring that any attempt to violate our territory will be duly punished.
