Nicaragua’s representative to the United Nations has called on all countries in Latin America and the Caribbean to reject the “unacceptable” United States aggression against Venezuela.
“In the region we cannot permit attacks against a sister republic, wherever they are from. Because today it’s Venezuela, and tomorrow it could be anywhere else, as history has demonstrated,” Maria Rubiales said during the 59th Session of the Commission of the Status of Women.
According to Rubiales, all international organizations and regional integration mechanisms should denounce the threats U.S. President Barack Obama made in handing out fresh sanctions and declaring Venezuela a threat to “national security.”
“It is absurd and unreal what Obama put forward, how Venezuela could constitute an unusual and extraordinary threat for the United States,” said Rubiales. “The planet knows that the only and true danger for the sovereignty of the people is imperialism, represented by the North American government. We will continue fighting, we cannot accept this new aggression against Latin America and the Caribbean.”
