The president of Ecuador, Lenín Moreno, held a meeting this Sunday with his counterpart from Colombia, Iván Duque, where they reiterated their support for the cause of the freedom of Venezuela and the rebuff of Maduro’s Chavista assembly.
Duque warned about the “efforts that the Venezuelan dictatorship has made to influence, determine different processes that are happening in Latin America.”
“It is evident that many of the leaders of these terrorist organizations are protected and aided in Venezuela. We also know that these are structures of transnational crime,” he added.
MADURO’S ELECTORAL FRAUD
The head of State of Columbia asserted that they have seen “clearly how the dictatorship has a relationship of collusion with the narco-terrorist groups that operate in our country, but that they also have protection and aid in Venezuelan territory.”
“In this last process that we saw in December, the dictatorship wanted to silence the only democratic institution that was left to Venezuela and tried, with a fraudulently elected Assembly, that this coup be consolidated,” he added.
For this reason, he stressed that the international community “has not recognized this process and therefore, we will continue to defend democracy so that a transition takes place, as soon as possible, through free elections.”
CORRUPTION AND DRUG TRAFFICKING
For his part, the president of Ecuador, Lenín Moreno pointed out that in Venezuela power is being held in an illegitimate way by a group of people who are completely unrelated to the whole concept of ethics that we have .
“They are engrossed by corruption, by the theft of money, by the revenues generated by drug trafficking. Enthralled by power,” he said.
Moreno added that the population’s rejection of the dictatorship was evident when on December 6th, participation in the electoral fraud did not exceed 20% of the population.
Finally, the Ecuadorian president ratified his support for the president in charge of Venezuela, Juan Guaidó, as well as the lawfull, legitimate National Assembly that he presides.
