Venezuela: Maduro Severs Relations with US, Throws Out Diplomats

HAVANA TIMES – Venezuela is severing political and diplomatic relations with the United States, President Nicolas Maduro said, accusing Washington of being behind an attempt to have him replaced by National Assembly President Juan Guaido.

Maduro spoke to a large crowd hours after Guaido had declared himself the country’s interim president.

He gave US diplomatic staff 72 hours to leave Venezuela.

“The imperialist government of the United States is directing an operation to impose … a puppet government” serving Washington’s interests, Maduro said.

But “it is the people who choose their president,” he added.

“They want to govern Venezuela from Washington,” Maduro said, attributing such moves to “the extremist folly of Donald Trump against Venezuela.”

  • SOVEREIGNTY , INDEPENDENCE , SELF-DETERMINATION, DIGNITY are foundations of any FREE NATION , AND THOSE WHO REALLY APPRECIATE FREEDOM SHALL NEVER INTERVENE IN OTHER NATION DOMESTIC AFFAIRS .
    Nevertheless , it was the President of The United States , after his Vice-President and his Secretary of State have done acts of aggression against Venezuela , who rushed to ” recognized ” a Venezuelan citizen as ” the Legal President ” overseeing – disrespecting – and violating NOT ONLY VENEZUELAN CONSTITUTION BUT VENEZUELAN DEMOCRATICALLY ELECTED PRESIDENT : NICOLAS MADURO .
    Such an aggression against democracy and against a whole nation has not precedent in recent history . Thus , it is a must to reject , to condemn what The White House tenant is doing :
    – He acts , he thinks , he speaks , and he gives orders with COMPLETE DISREGARD FOR INTERNATIONAL LAW , DISRESPECTING NOT ONLY VENEZUELAN – in this case – BUT ALL THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY .
    HE DESERVES TO BE IN THE INFAMOUS WANNA BE DICTATORS .
    LONG LIVE TO VENEZUELA DEMOCRACY
