The President of the Republic, Juan Guaidó, reiterated this Sunday that the legitimate government he leads continues to work on denouncing and confronting the irregular groups that live in Venezuela under the protection of Nicolas Maduro’s regime.
Guaidó said that groups like the ELN swore loyalty to the Venezuelan dictatorship and that, for that reason, Maduro is accused of being a narco-terrorist.
The president made these statements after Colombian Senator Aída Avella suggested that the Venezuelan president is linked to “Los Rastrojos”, a narco-paramilitary group in Colombia.
“Saying that, Senator, only collaborates with the regime, distracts from the central issue and trivializes the struggle of an entire country,” Guaidó said on Sunday through his personal Twitter account.
The also President of the National Assembly (NA), urged the Colombian representative to support the policies of the government of Ivan Duque, if she wants to confront and end the armed groups that exist in Colombia.
Guaidó recalled that President Duque strongly supports the fight for freedom in Venezuela.
“Millions of Venezuelans and the world are grateful,” he ended.
Muy lejos de eso: hemos denunciado y enfrentado a grupos irregulares que son amparados en territorio venezolano por la dictadura de Maduro. Grupos como el ELN que le juran lealtad al dictador y es una de las razones por la cual él está acusado de narcoterrorismo. https://t.co/M215zwaPwb
