Acting U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for Western Hemisphere Affairs, Michael Kozak, said Venezuelans deserve a government that uses the benefits of the state to benefit the people.
“Venezuelans deserve a government that restores the oil sector and reinvests in the country, not an illegitimate regime that has destroyed it with corruption and incompetence,” Kozak said through his Twitter account.
The US diplomat condemned that Maduro’s regime uses Venezuela’s resources for its personal interests.
“Venezuela’s resources should benefit the people. Their gold should not go into a bank vault in Tehran,” he concluded.
Los venezolanos merecen un gobierno que restaure el sector petrolero y reinvierta en el país, no un régimen ilegítimo que lo ha destruido con corrupción/ incompetencia. Los recursos de Venezuela deberían beneficiar la gente; su oro no debería ir a la bóveda de un banco en Teherán
