Paris, Sep 15 (Prensa Latina) Venezuela on Sunday described at the Fête de L’Humanite the US-imposed economic and financial blockade as immoral and inhuman.
In statements to Prensa Latina, diplomat Alejandro Fleming said that defying International Law, Washington seeks to leave an entire nation without food and medicine.
What is most serious in all this aggressiveness is that the US openly declares its destabilizing objective, as a way to overthrow a legitimate government and impose a puppet government, subordinated to its interests, Fleming warned.
According to the former tourism and commerce minister, the attacks by the Trump administration are accompanied by a media blockade aimed at portraying Venezuela as a dictatorship.
The mass media report that people are starving to death in my country, and have no access to medicines in order to justify the imperialist hostility, he said.
The truth is quite different, the shortages are due to the immoral and illegal sanctions, he stressed at the Georges Valbon park, on the outskirts of Paris, where the festival, organized by L’Humanite newspaper in its 84th edition, ends Sunday.
According to Fleming, the government of Nicolas Maduro has devised mechanisms for people to access food and medicine, but is up against the financial blockade.
