The Venezuelan Ambassador to the United States, Carlos Vecchio, valued positively that the United States government extended the executive Order that declares Nicolás Maduro’s regime a threat to national security.
“This action by President Joe Biden is more relevant after Maduro’s support for Putin in the war against Ukraine and the world’s democracies,” said Amb. Vecchio in a message released through his social network accounts.
The Venezuelan diplomat asserted that as long as Maduro persists in maintaining his dictatorship, commits crimes against humanity and other illicit acts and is associated with Russia, Venezuela will be a threat to the whole region.
Maduro is for Putin what Cuba was for the Soviet Union
Ambassador Vecchio affirmed that Nicolás Maduro’s dictatorship has become a tool to destabilize the American continent but without an ideological affiliation.
Furthermore, he explained that both Maduro’s and Putin’s dictatorships are united by corruption, kleptocracy and authoritarianism.
“The international community should not underestimate Putin’s interference in Latin America,” he concluded.
Esta acción de @POTUS tiene mayor relevancia tras apoyo de Maduro a Putin en guerra contra Ucrania y democracias del 🌎.
Mientras Maduro persista en dictadura, crímenes lesa humanidad, actos ilícitos y asociado a Rusia, Venezuela será amenaza para región. https://t.co/tiVJn9gr3c
