The Presidential Commissioner for Foreign Relations, Julio Borges, detailed Friday that Iran built tunnels in Syria to introduce weapons into Iraq and that this is a sign of what could happen in Venezuela.
Borges said these weapons could end up in the hands of irregular groups already operating in the country.
“In Syria, Iran used its influence to create tunnels and from there introduce weapons to Iraq. A similar situation could occur in Venezuela, weapons that could end up in the hands of irregular groups and terrorists that threaten the region,” he said.
The foreign policy representative of Juan Guaidó’s government warned that Iran’s influence is not just any petty issue, but a threat to an entire continent. “Iran’s positioning in Venezuela must be seen as a security issue for all of Latin America. It is time to look very carefully at this alliance between terrorist regimes,” he said.
He also insisted that Iran violates resolution 2231 in Venezuela and recalled that Hezbollah is already in the country and its strengthening is one of the interests of Maduro’s regime. He insisted on the need for a great alliance of the region against terrorism, because in his opinion Latin America could end up like the Middle East.
Finally, he pointed out that the Interim Government is making efforts to alert the allied countries of this situation.
