“Today Venezuela bleeds through its borders,” in this way started the speech of President of the country and of the legitimate National Assembly, Juan Guaidó, when he spoke about the confrontation of irregular armed groups in Apure State that has claimed the lives of Venezuelans, civilians and soldiers, and the shipwrecks where innocents fleeing the dictatorship have also died by drowning.
In the “Debate on the presence of irregular armed groups that act in the country with the complicity of the usurping regime of Nicolás Maduro”, held in the regular session of the Delegate Commission of the legitimate National Assembly held this Tuesday, April 27th, the President in Charge made the statement where he also ratified Maduro’s responsibility in this situation.
“Maduro protected and protects irregular groups, the events in Apure are part of a conflict created by the dictator Nicolás Maduro. The confrontations in Apure are between guerrillas protected by Maduro. He has been the biggest sellout dictator in history.”
He said that the national Parliament will investigate with multilateral organizations the events on the Apure border, which is already more than a month old.
Guaidó took the opportunity to send his condolences to the relatives of the soldiers killed in Apure State, and the relatives of the most recent shipwreck in Delta Amacuro State.
The President of the Interim Government highlighted the need to have an “independent referee” to hold free and fair elections and achieve the political change that is urgently needed in Venezuela to put an end to this tragedy.
“In the National Assembly we have an absolute disposition to reach an agreement to save Venezuela, and having an independent referee is key.”
This statements were made during the debate of “Draft Agreement in rejection of the intention of the usurping regime to appoint a new CNE in an unconstitutional manner”, in the session of Delegate Commission held this April 27th.
Finally, Guaidó greeted and welcomed Cardinal Pietro Parolin, the Vatican Secretary of State, who will be in Venezuela on the occasion of the beatification of Dr. José Gregorio Hernández next Friday, April 30th.
