The ambassador to the United Kingdom, Vanessa Neumann, denounced on Friday that the terrorist group Hezbollah “earns one billion a year in Venezuela” thanks to the association it has with Nicolas Maduro’s regime.
“Hezbollah’s support has several advantages for Maduro. The first is the business of money laundering that benefits both of them, and also the hidden management of diplomatic relations and espionage that Hezbollah executes,” Neumann said in an interview with Venezuelan journalist Cesar Miguel Rondón.
President (E) Juan Guaidó’s delegate in the United Kingdom emphasized that the power that Hezbollah maintains in Venezuelan territory is with the goal of taking advantage of the regime and forming a network of intimidation.
She also stressed that Tareck El Aissami, an ally of the Venezuelan regime which appears on the list of the most wanted by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, “is the main contact between Maduro and Hezbollah.”
Neumann explained that in order to eliminate this problem, “the support of international partners who understand Hezbollah’s threat in Venezuela is required to remove this piece of support for Nicolás Maduro.”
