Caracas, Dec 23 (Prensa Latina) Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro noted in a Christmas and New Year’s message to the nation today that the people will achieve new victories in 2018.
In a video posted on social networks, the president predicted that hope has been renovated in the people to achieve new victories and move forward in Venezuela’s consolidation as a power in 2018.
He recalled that in 2017, Venezuela achieved peace and a political victory over the national right wing’s efforts and the non-conventional warfare by the imperial powers.
“So many battles in this 2017, with the strength rooted in love, we defeated darkness and sadness. It was the victory of peace. It was the victory of life,” Maduro stressed.
The Bolivarian head of State noted the character and bravery of the people against difficulties.
In that regard, he recalled the statements by the leader of the Bolivarian Revolution, Hugo Chavez, who said, “If I could make a decoration with my heart, I would pin it on the Venezuelan people’s chest.”
Maduro wished all Venezuelans Merry Christmas and a prosperous and happy 2018. “Merry Christmas, beloved people!”
