Venezuela is attacked for being at the forefront of continent, ALBA general secretary says


Caracas, 10 Ago. AVN.- The Secretary General of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America - Trade Treaty of the Peoples (ALBA-TCP), David Choquehuanca, explained that Venezuela is currently attacked because it is "at the forefront in the construction of the unity of our peoples."

In an interview with Telesur TV channel, Bolivia's foreign minister said that behind the interventionist actions and attacks from the United States and the regional right there are imperial interests to return to "that economic model of plundering our natural resources."

Regarding the unilateral measures imposed by local right-wing governments and the United States, the ALBA-TCP general secretary stated that "no country defending its sovereignty, defending its dignity, can accept these unilateral measures that affect our peoples."

He stressed that many of the countries involved in the attacks against Venezuela have no moral opinion on the internal affairs of the Venezuelan people.

Choquehuanca said that Venezuelans can solve their problems without foreign interference. For this reason, he expressed his support for the peace talks between the government and the opposition.

Likewise, he recalled that violence does not lead to anywhere, so he celebrates that "Venezuela has decided to resolve their problems through dialogue."
