Cuba Confirms Solidarity with Bolivarian Revolution in Venezuela

Havana, Feb 21 (Prensa Latina) – Cuba condemned the coup attempt, assassination attempts and conspiracies denounced by the government of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, while it confirmed its total support for the Bolivarian Revolution.

The Republic of Cuba has expressed its invariable solidarity and support for the people and government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela and its legitimate president, Nicolas Maduro Moros, according to a statement from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MINREX).

The MINREX criticized the economic and media warfare waged against the Maduro government, and strongly rejected “statements and interference by the United States and the Organization of American States (OAS), which encourage and promote internal subversion, violating the sovereignty, independence and free determination of the Venezuelan people.”

The MINREX’s press release ratified that the Cuban collaborators working in Venezuela, as part of the different social missions, will remain in the country “in compliance with their duties under any circumstances, for the benefit of the brother, friendly and noble Venezuelan people.”

Last week, the Venezuelan president denounced a coup attempt with participation of opposition sectors, a reduced group in the Military Aviation and Washington’s support.

Venezuela alerted the Union of South American Nations (UNASUR) about the actions boosted from Washington against Caracas, and the US unilateral sanctions, such as freezing accounts and withholding visas, on some local officials.

On Friday, Maduro said outside the Miraflores Palace that there is evidence of the participation of US Embassy officials in plots against Venezuela. “They pressured Armed Force officials to accept a proposal to betray the homeland,” he noted.
