President Maduro sympathizes with Evo Morales in the face of violent escalation

The president of the Republic, Nicolás Maduro, sympathized on Wednesday with his counterpart from the Plurinational State of Bolivia, Evo Morales, and his people, in the face of the violence registered in that nation after the victory obtained in the general elections last Sunday:
“I want to express all the solidarity of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela with the people of Bolivia and the reelected, legitimate and constitutional president, Evo Morales Ayma, the Indian chief of the South”, he said during a work meeting with Sectoral Vice Presidents from La Guaira state, while calling on Venezuelans to mobilize against the coup d’etat in the South American country and in Latin America.
In his words, he also urged the humanist leaders and social movements of the world to rise against the coup, the violent agenda that the right wing seeks to impose, and thus give respect for the victory of President Morales:
“I call on the world, for the voices of leading men and women, presidents, ministers, social and political movements to react. Evo is a pacifist (…) He deserves to be defended against this barrage of successive attacks”, he said.
He added that “the Bolivian people will know how to defeat this attempt by sectors of the right wing that are trying to destroy democracy, to destroy President Evo Morales and disown the reality of the Constitution and the laws of that nation”.
In this morning, Morales denounced the launch of a coup d’etat against him, orchestrated by the Bolivian right wing with international support, for which he declared a state of emergency “in order to protect democracy in the nation”:
“The right has been prepared with international support. So far we have endured, in order to avoid violence, and we have not entered into confrontation. I declare the state of emergency to defend democracy”, he said during a press conference in La Paz.
The Bolivian president explained that the coup d’etat is expressed in the opposition’s refusal to allow the counting of votes and in the attacks that groups have carried out against state institutions.
