  Venezuela Rejects "Interventionist" Statement by US Southern Command Chief

By Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela , April 10th 2017

The Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela categorically rejects and protests 
the comments expressed by Admiral Kurt Tidd, commander of the United 
States Southern Command, which lay the groundwork for an attack on 
Venezuela under the aegis of the false doctrine of collective regional 

On Thursday, April 6 2017, Admiral Kurt Tidd declared that: “…The 
growing humanitarian crisis in Venezuela could eventually compel a 
regional response”. This affirmation, aimed at creating uncertainty and 
instability in the country, is framed within the interventionist order 
of a group of governments that are harassing and relentlessly hounding 
Venezuela through the construction of false assumptions accompanied by 
operations in the media and fraudulent processes within the framework of 
the Organization of American States (OAS).

This is nothing new. This is exactly the same script that has been 
repeated by the spokespeople and regional executioners of the 
interventionist plan against Venezuela to justify their avaricious 
ambitions with regards to our resources, seriously threatening the peace 
of our homeland.

Just as his predecessor John Kelly, who at the end of 2015 voiced false 
opinions about the political, economic and social situation of the 
country, which without a doubt formed part of the well-known script for 
interference and provocation to justify, in the name of humanitarian 
reasons and the subterfuge of a “regional response”, a future military 
intervention in our territory whose real objective is simply to 
overthrow the legitimately elected government.

It is particularly worrying that such declarations are being made in 
this moment, when a ferocious international attack is being carried out 
against Venezuela through the General Secretary of the OAS and a cohort 
of countries allied to the US government, which undoubtedly form part of 
the same plan under development to dominate our people.

We alert the international community to the plan which is underway to 
undermine the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Venezuela, 
contravening the United Nations’ Charter and its principles and aims. 
This is a call to the peoples of Our America in the face of these 
serious occurrences against our country.

The Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela rejects this latest act of 
interference, which is against the principle of the self-determination 
of the people, and ratifies its unshakeable commitment to the 
institutions of the Bolivarian Republic to defend its liberty, 
sovereignty and the independence of the nation, as part of the historic 
legacy of our liberators.
