Cuba Condemns Coup Attempt vs. Venezuelan Gov’t

minrexHavana, Feb 14 (Prensa Latina) – Cuba strongly condemned developing coup attempts against the constitutional government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, and the recent violent incidents that caused deaths and dozens of injures, it was reported in this capital today. According to a statement from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs published in the national press, Cuban authorities also condemned the attacks to public institutions, burning of vehicles, and destruction, organized by fascist groups, as President Nicolas Maduro has denounced to the world.

The Cuban government expresses full support to the Bolivarian and Chavista Revolution, and call for the wider international solidarity with the conviction that the Venezuelan people will know to defend their irreversible conquests, the legacy of President Hugo Chavez Frias, and the government he freely and independently elected, led by President Maduro, the statement says.

It also states the necessity to remember the events occurred on Wednesday, Feb. 12, while the Venezuelan youth and nation commemorated the 200th anniversary of the heroic battle “La Victoria,” they are similar to those occurred on April 11, 2002.

In that moment, those events were maximized by conspiratorial governments, and oligarchic and multinational means as part of the coup, later defeated by the popular mobilization with Chavez’ victorious return, the Cuban Ministry of Foreign Affairs recalls.

Cuba also reaffirms its unconditional support to the indefatigable and visible efforts of President Maduro and the political-military leadership of the Bolivarian Revolution to preserve peace, join the country’s all sectors, and boost the social-economic development of that fraternal nation, the statements says.
