United Nations, Aug 27 (Prensa Latina) The world”s largest oil reserves, a privileged geographic position and the push for a political, economic and social process far from external opinions make Venezuela a target of US aggression and interference.
The Permanent Representative of the United States to the United Nations (UN), Rafael Ramírez, denounced in an interview with the Cuban weekly Orbe the components of the American crusade against the Bolivarian Revolution and asserted that the process founded by the late leader Hugo Chavez 1954-2013) will defeat each one of them.
According to the diplomat, one of the elements of the campaign is to try to isolate Venezuela, in order to generate the scenario conducive to other hostile actions.
We want to create a matrix of opinion and then commit an outrage, an aggression that by its consequences everyone would regret, as we have seen in the Middle East, where chaos and instability rule, he warned.
Ramirez said that Washington has already failed in its attempt to besiege Venezuela in the Organization of American States (OAS) and now seeks that goal in the United Nations.
It is trying to bring a bilateral issue to the multilateral arena, and in May, we defeated a first effort to bring the issue to the Security Council, he said.
The ambassador stressed the fiasco of that time and the position of several countries with permanent and rotating seats in the 15-member body, including Russia, Egypt, Bolivia and Uruguay, which ruled that the situation in the South American country poses a threat to peace World, a key requirement for the Council’s analysis.
We will continue to resist with our diplomatic ability and international solidarity, we are not alone, because the regional and global cost of destabilization is well known, he stressed.
THREATS OF TRUMP
According to Ramírez, the unilateral sanctions imposed on Venezuelan officials, the recent threats of the military option launched by President Donald Trump and the economic war are other elements of the campaign to destroy the Bolivarian Revolution.
The permanent representative also stated that his country will not be surprised and prepared to neutralize the campaigns, while recognizing its negative impact. One of the likely scenarios is the US sanctions attack on the oil sector, the main source of income for the South American nation.
Since 2010, when Washington imposed sanctions on Petróleos de Venezuela (PDVSA), we prepare ourselves with actions such as diversifying our market, before we sold all the crude to the United States, but we started supplying China, which now exceeds 600,000 barrels a day, And India, more than 400 000, he said.
Ramirez commented that if imperial madness were to affect the oil industry, the northern country itself would suffer the consequences, because its refining structure is designed to process heavy and medium-sized crude oil, of which Venezuela is the largest supplier in the region, after the decline of Mexico.
