Caracas, Jan 5 (Prensa Latina) The Venezuelan Foreign Minister, Jorge Arreaza, rejected on Saturday the declarations of the so-called Grupo de Lima, which after receiving instructions from the United States
Government, agreed to encourage a coup in the South American country.
Through the social network Twitter, the head of Foreign Affairs cataloged the extravagant interventionist pretensions, and assured that even opposition leaders expressed dissatisfaction with the proposal to modify the territorial limits of the nation.
Arreaza stressed that the actions of the Lima Group contravene the principles of peace, ‘because international conventions are those that should inspire public international law and the actions of multilateral organizations,’ he said.
He also indicated that the Venezuelan people will continue on their own path of independence, renewal and new strengths, to preserve peace and stability.
The minister invited the whole world to be witness of the inauguration on January 10 of President Nicolas Maduro, who was re-elected on May 20 for the period 2019-2025.
At the meeting held Friday in Lima, Peru, attended only six of the 15 foreign ministers of the countries convened, plus the US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, by videoconference from Washington, and who surely insisted on his preaching to isolate and finish with the Bolivarian government.
For its part, Mexico opposed the declaration because of its interventionist scope, and resumed its historic foreign policy of non-intervention and respect for the sovereignty and internal affairs of other nations.
