Shameful Stance of Mexican Gov’ Towards Venezuela, Senators

Mexico, June 22 (Prensa Latina) The government of President Enrique Peña Nieto must end the interventionist policy that is being applied against Venezuela, Mexican senators demanded at a press conference.

The lawmakers branded as ‘shameful’ the government’s stance against the South American country in the Organization of American States, which ended yesterday in Cancun with grief and glory, especially since an anti-Venezuelan project sponsored by the US and the host government could not be imposed.

Secretary of Foreign Affairs Luis Videgaray ‘operates like a footman, he has become a US pawn compromising national security and he is used to getting into Guatemala and Central America,’ the coordinator of the Labor Party and the National Regeneration Movement (Morena) in the Senate, Manuel Bartlett, warned.

During a press conference, he said that President Enrique Peña Nieto and the Foreign Minister violate the Magna Carta with its interventionist position on Venezuela and recalled that the Constitution indicates ‘the non-intervention of Mexico in the internal affairs of other countries.’

By its part, Senator Miguel Barbosa said that Mexico has no moral authority to demand respect for human rights in other nations, when it has an infinity of cases of violations of the fundamental guarantees of Mexicans, including that of the 43 students of Ayotzinapa that disappeared more than two years ago.

Likewise, the coordinator of the Democratic Revolution Party in the Senate, Dolores Padierna, deplored that Mexico joins the US strategy of attacking the democratically elected government of Venezuela.

‘Can Mexico present itself as a human rights defender when we live a humanitarian crisis every day?’ Bartlett asked the legislators of the National Action Party, diligent in their attacks on the government of President Nicolas Maduro.
