«What a diversionary tactic: @SecPompeo and @IvanDuque talk and as always they announce that they talked about Venezuela. What about the increase in drug production? And the unpunished entry of drugs into the US? And the murders of social leaders? And the #COVID ー 19 humanitarian crisis in the US? ”Asked the Venezuelan diplomat on the Twitter network.
