The Government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela express its strongest condemnation to the embarrassing statements of Jose Miguel Insulza about the Venezuelan internal political affairs, representing a new, abusive and opportunist act of interference that discredits even more the OAS Secretary General.
The unwise statements of Insulza about the Enabling Law passed by the Venezuelan National Assembly, accomplishing his role of “fulltime scheming”, as the Liberator Simón Bolívar said, arises few hours after and exactly in the same terms than the statements of the Assistant Secretary of State for Western Hemisphere Affairs Arturo Valenzuela, making even more sad the role of the OAS Secretary General like a simple complement of the U.S. policy of intervention and domination over the continent.
The people and government of Venezuela will not allow that the OAS Secretary General, a body subordinated to its Member States, act as a Captaincy General of the U.S. Department of State to impose an agenda of aggression against the Venezuelan institutions and democracy, which already has undeniable precedents in the recent history. The political interests defended by both Insulza and Valenzuela, are those of the ones who attempted against the Venezuelan democracy in the period 2002-2003 in complicity with the OAS and the US Government.
While the Venezuelan people uses all its capacity provided with in the Constitution and Laws to the service of the national effort for solving the consequences of the emergency caused by the rainfalls, Insulza once more is willing to attack and disturb the institutionality of our country.
The Bolivarian Government of President Hugo Chávez will continue moving forward towards the sovereign consolidation of an authentic, protagonist and participative democracy in accordance with the constitutional mandate granted for the Venezuelan people, in spite of the pressures and the internal and external attacks from the historical enemies of the new processes of independence and democratic transformation.
