BOLIVARIAN REPUBLIC OF VENEZUELA
MINISTRY OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS
(Unofficial translation) The Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela rejects the unilateral, illegitimate and extraterritorial actions of the Foreign Relations Committee of the US Senate who decided to extend until 2019 the legislation imposing sanctions on Venezuela.
By passing legislations the US Senate projects its area of jurisdiction beyond territorial borders of the United States, in a flagrant violation of international law and the principles and purposes of the United Nations Organization.
The Executive Order of President Barack Hussein Obama, who considers Venezuela an unusual and extraordinary threat to the US national security and foreign policy, is covered in this illegal and illegitimate legislation.
The Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela condemns the arrogant exercise of American Public Power that violates all international legal system and undermines the multilateral and bilateral institutions that governs relations between independent and sovereign states. The homeland of Simon Bolivar will never kneel before any imperial pretension.
"The love for the Homeland will prevail".
