President Morales denounces attempted military intervention in Venezuela by the US

The President of Bolivia, Evo Morales, denounced on Monday the Vice President of the United States of America (USA), Mike Pence, to try to execute a military intervention in Venezuela, due to the different visits that the US Vice President has made in the region.

“With regard to the Vice President of the United States, Pence, he permanently tries to convince some countries of South America, of Latin America for an intervention to Venezuela”, said Morales at a press conference, quoted by the Bolivian Information Agency (ABI).

Last Tuesday, Pence met with Brazilian authorities, as part of his second tour through Latin American countries in which he promotes pressure against Venezuela.

This is Pence’s third trip to the region, with which he tries to orchestrate plans against Venezuela, actions previously unsuccessful.

In this sense, Morales warned that US President Donald Trump held a meeting last year with six Heads of State in the region, to orchestrate the interventionist plan against Venezuela, a country that since the arrival of the Bolivarian Revolution, 19 years ago, has maintained an anti-imperialist and sovereign line:

“They are Presidents of the right wing, and yet everyone has opposed, they have rejected it, and in his first visit to some Presidents he said that Latin America is not the backyard of the United States, he had failed in his first round or first visit to South America”, stressed the Bolivian leader, quoted by ABI.
