Clear, consulted with the world and ready to be executed, is the strategy outlined to advance the liberation of Venezuela, said the President of the Republic, Juan Guaidó, when presenting the balance of the international tour that took him to countries in the Americas and Europe.
The announcement was made during a press conference with national and international media on Saturday, where he also ratified that more sanctions will be executed against the regime and its supporters.
“We have a clear strategy to free Venezuela that we will reveal in due course. We cannot reveal specific details, but I reiterate to the Venezuelans that we do have a strategy. On Tuesday (February 18th) we will see concrete elements”.
He also said that they will continue to exercise measures against the companies that currently “finance the parastate”, which he called “war vultures.”
He indicated that in the next few days the agenda of mobilizations will be announced, but he said that on Monday, February 17th, part of the street actions will be made public. On Thursday, February 20th, new information will be revealed about some of the actions of the dictatorship in violation of human rights.
“I am going to call you to the streets, we are going to exercise our rights. I ask for unity on all sides. I ask the Venezuelans to have confidence in this process.”
To the National Armed Forces (FAN) and public officials he insisted that they “must not continue to protect the dictator.” He told them that he is once again extending his hand to them so that they side with the Constitution, he recalled that the interim government does have a word, so they maintain guarantees and respect for those who take the step forward and side with the Venezuelan people.
He also reiterated that the only dialogue with the world is with the national Parliament and he as President in charge of the country.
“We have the possibility of providing guarantees to those who take the side of the Constitution and if not ask Cristopher Figuera, for example. They (referring to the regime) do not have a dialogue, what they have is the repudiation and rejection of the free world, and if not, ask Delcy Rodriguez.
In the balance of the international tour, the President in charge of Venezuela, indicated that in all the meetings he took an “agenda of actions and measures to raise against the dictatorship and in favor of the people of Venezuela”.
He said that for obvious reasons of a strategic nature and national security, as well as to preserve the relations and interests of the international allies, he would only make a general mention of the thematic axes proposed.
“We gave privileged information about the link between Maduro’s regime and terrorism, drug trafficking and international organized crime. We also agreed on measures to cut off or reduce international economic, political and military support from the few countries that still support Maduro”.
Another of the actions is aimed at deepening the financial siege of the dictatorship and the detection and recovery of capital resulting from corruption, the strengthening and support of the process at the International Criminal Court, the international disregard of a parliamentary electoral fraud and the unification of the world around the objective of free presidential elections.
They also agreed on measures to support Venezuelan refugees, the situation of the diaspora, to deal with cases of life and death in Venezuela and the strengthening of humanitarian aid; plans and proposals for investment and recovery of the country; cooperation in intelligence, judicial, police and military matters for the rescue and reconstruction of Venezuela; among others.
“He doesn’t have the spheres”
When approached by President (e) Guaidó about the recent remarks made by Nicolás Maduro that “the day will come” to put him in prison; he dismissed such a threat because “he has been saying it for a year”.
“Maduro does not have the balls to put me in jail. The besoted threats are not new; a year ago they said they were going to put me on the hooks (prisoner) and here I am”.
He blamed him once again for “shattering the bolivar,” and with three dollars in his hand, Guaidó said that was the salary of a Venezuelan a month.
Finally, regarding the “military exercises” that the FAN is carrying out in the country this weekend, the Venezuelan President called them “military propaganda exercises.”
“These military propaganda exercises are being carried out the day after a spokesman for the dictatorship (referring to Freddy Bernal) says they are afraid. I say to that spokesman: don’t be afraid (of the United States), they are allies, they are allies of democracy, of the struggle for democracy.
