Dec 31 (teleSUR) The Venezuelan worker President Nicolas Maduro gave a speech for his people on the last address to the nation in 2018. President Maduro thanked the effort and firm commitment of the people in defense of sovereignty and peace.
Maduro talked to all Venezuelans, “thanks for so much solidarity with our country, for your firm commitment with peace, for your democratic vocation,” stated the president of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela. For the leader, 2018 was the year of the institutionalization of the social programs and consolidation of rights, when the “democracy was armored” and the year when the government of the Bolivarian Revolution “demonstrated that this sacred land filled with history and future has only one owner and it the Venezuelan people.”
“In 2018 we managed to reach 4 million, 300 thousand pensioners. We achieved the goal of 100 percent of pensioners. In addition, 5 million families are already included and protected in the Great Mission Homes of the Homeland,” said President Nicolas Maduro.
President Nicolás Maduro reiterated the call for a dialogue with the political sectors willing to work for peace and stability in Venezuela. He also thanked his people “because, in the middle of a bloody economic war, we were united in hope and faith to ourselves, we have laid the groundwork to make 2019 a year of stability and economic prosperity.” This will continue with the project of the 21st Century Socialism.
Maduro also thanked Venezuelans for the Unity, “as only together will we be able to defend that what was achieved,” by the Bolivarian Revolution “as well as change what needs to be changed.” It Is the Venezuelan people who need to adjust the things that need to be changed, and interventionist and coup attempts won’t be permitted by Venezuela. Maduro rejected any attempts that go against the principle of self-determination of the peoples.
Maduro stated that peace is the way for Venezuela, and he agreed to meet with the opposition in new dialogue tables that will allow that peace. But peace dialogues under the rule of law and no coup attempt will be accepted. “2019 will be the year of the fight against imperialism.”
