      The member countries of ALBA-TCP, express our heartfelt solidarity with President Nicolás Maduro and his people, and declare that the grievances against the Venezuelan leader invalidate the General Secretary to pronounce about any affair related to the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, as his commentaries offend every single sovereign State.

Just a few days ago.Mr. Almagro participated in an event in the city of Miami, where in presence of Venezuelan and foreign representatives of the opposition, a call was made to invade Venezuela, threatening the right for development, peace and homeland of theb Venezuelan people.

      The member countries of ALBA-TCP manifest our solidarity with the sister Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, with its President and its people, and reject the mediatic, economic, diplomatic and financial aggressions that seek to overthrow its legitimate Government.

      The member countries of ALBA-TCP acknowledge the hard work of the Venezuelan Government in the promotion and protection of human rights, justice and peace, to contain the plan of international intervention intended against Venezuela, threatening not only the stability of this sister nation, but our region’s stability as well.

      Finally, the member countries of ALBA-TCP trust in the unbreakable will of the Venezuelan people, guided by the thinking of Simón Bolívar and his capacity to close lines in the face of this continued threat against the democratic stability of the country and the region.
