The Presidential Commissioner for Foreign Relations of Venezuela, Julio Borges, warned during his speech in the General Assembly of the Organization of American States (OAS), the negative impact the humanitarian crisis caused by Nicolás Maduro’s dictatorship has had on the region.
“In the midst of this adverse situation in Latin America, Maduro’s dictatorship is still in power, it continues to be a point of destabilization for the entire region sponsoring violent groups in different countries with the purpose of breaking the democratic order,” said Borges to open his speech before the delegations of Member States.
“Maduro is drug trafficking, drug trafficking that spreads through a lot of the countries of Central America and that continues to harm our youth. Maduro also means supporting terrorist groups such as the Dissident FARC, Maduro also means the destruction of human rights and human dignity,” he added.
The highest diplomatic representative of the Legitimate Government pointed out that all the chaos caused by Maduro’s criminal regime has left a migration crisis with more than 7 million displaced women.
He also warned that Maduro has served as an inspiration for many populist projects in the region and autocratic projects that are now emerging.
“Our region is receding at astronomical speed. It is incredible that many countries want to cover up the undemocratic reality that is observed in Venezuela, Cuba, Nicaragua and that is looming in other countries in the region,” he said.
On the other hand, the official thanked the foreign ministers and representatives of the delegations that have fought for democracy in Venezuela, Nicaragua and other parts of the region on behalf of all Venezuelans.
However, he proposed that the electoral observation of the American States should be strengthened, achieving the commitment that the entire region has the presence and support of the quality control of the Organization of American States.
“We want to ask all the countries that join us without hypocrisy in the human and democratic drama that not only affects Venezuela but other countries in the region are experiencing, the fact that they cannot count on the solidarity of all countries on such essential issues is something that draws deep attention,” concluded Borges.
