Venezuela withdraws credentials to Bolivia military attaché

The Ministry of People’s Power for Foreign Relations informed on Wednesday its decision to withdraw accreditations to the personnel of the military aggregation of the Plurinational State of Bolivia in Caracas.
The measure “Corresponds to the role played by the (Military) high command of the Bolivian Armed Forces in the coup d’etat of November 10, and in no case supposes an individual assessment of the Bolivian soldiers”, said the Venezuelan Foreign Ministry in a diplomatic note.
This way the Bolivian staff was requested to leave within the next 72 hours.

Venezuela reiterates the greatest respect for Bolivian soldiers “as heirs of the glorious army of Bolivia, founded by The Liberator Simón Bolívar and the Grand Marshal of Ayacucho, Antonio José de Sucre”.
