Havana, Jan 26 (Prensa Latina) Cuban political figures called here in the last hours to stop the coup in Venezuela against President Nicolás Maduro as a key action to preserve peace in Latin America and the Caribbean.
‘In defense of Latin America and the Caribbean as a Zone of Peace, we must stop the imperialist coup attempt against the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela and its constitutional president, Nicolás Maduro,’ Foreign Minister Bruno warned on his Twitter account. Rodríguez
For its part, the president of the International Relations Commission of the National Assembly, Yolanda Ferrer, demanded the cessation of US interference in the South American country, in order to preserve the independence, sovereignty and regional self-determination.
Ferrer also advocated the defense of the Peace Zone, based on the need to stop the ongoing coup against Maduro, which escalated on January 23 with the recognition by Washington and some of his allies of the self-proclaimed president Juan Guaidó, chief of the National Assembly, declared in contempt.
The calls from Cuba are framed in the observance of the declaration of the region as a Zone of Peace, signed during the II Summit of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (Celac), held in this capital in January 2014.
The proclamation establishes a commitment to the peaceful settlement of disputes, to banish the use and threat of the use of force, and with strict compliance to non-intervention in the internal affairs of countries, in full adherence to the principles of national sovereignty and the self-determination of peoples.
Concerning the crusade led by the White House against Venezuela, the director general for the United States of the Cuban chancellery, Carlos Fernández de Cossío, warned about the attempt to re-edit in the South American nation the scripts imposed in Libya and Syria, directed to the change of regime.
