The presidential commissioner for foreign affairs, Julio Borges, celebrated the decision of the U.S. Treasury Department to sanction Congressmen Luis Parra, Franklyn Duarte, José Brito, Negal Morales, José Noriega, Conrado Pérez and Adolfo Superlano.
Borges pointed out that those who lend themselves to the regime’s maneuvers and betray the struggle of the Venezuelan people must receive full international repudiation. “We are in a struggle in which we are either on the side of those who suffer or on the side of the dictatorship,” he said.
The foreign policy representative of Juan Guaidó’s government indicated that these deputies have been bought by the Maduro regime and are advocating for the lifting of sanctions against the dictatorship’s front men.
Likewise, he said, “We have received the support of the entire free world, we have communicated with foreign ministers, presidents and political leaders, who have expressed their absolute recognition of Juan Guaidó as president of the Venezuelan parliament and head of the republic,” he reiterated.
Finally, he called on Venezuelans to accompany the deputies of the National Assembly on the streets to the Federal Legislative Palace.
