The Vice President of the United States, Mike Pence, spoke on Monday with Juan Guaidó, whom he ratified his support as president in charge of Venezuela. “The US will continue by your side until freedom is restored.”he wrote on his Twitter account.
“Today I had a great call with the President of Venezuela Juan Guaidó. The leadership of Donald Trump fell, the United States supports President Guaidó and the freedom-loving Venezuelan people”Pence wrote about the telephone conversation he had with the Venezuelan leader on Monday. And he added: “We are with you.”
On the other hand, The US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, announced on Monday sanctions against the Iranian Ministry of Defense and against the leader of the Chavista regime, Nicolás Maduro, considering that it violated the arms embargo that weighs on the Islamic Republic.
“No matter who you are, if you violate the embargo on Iran, you will face sanctions,” Pompeo warned at a press conference, who also announced sanctions against the Iranian nuclear program dedicated to civilian purposes and against other entities and individuals in that country.
“For nearly two years, corrupt officials in Tehran have worked with Venezuela’s illegitimate regime to circumvent the UN arms embargo.“Added the head of US diplomacy. “Our actions today are a warning that should be heard around the world.”
The United States maintains that Iran may have enough fissile material for a nuclear weapon by the end of the year, and that Tehran has resumed long-range missile cooperation with nuclear-armed North Korea.
Last week, An International Mission commissioned by the United Nations (UN) to investigate the human rights situation in Venezuela concluded that the dictator Nicolás Maduro and his defense ministers, Vladimir Padrino López; and the Interior, Néstor Reverol, are directly involved in serious crimes committed by the country’s security forces.
The published report offers ample information “that shows that the State authorities – both at the presidential and ministerial levels – exercised power and supervision over the civil and military security forces, and the agencies identified as perpetrators of the documented violations and crimes.”
“Today the only tool of struggle that Venezuelans have is the Parliament that represents them and is made up of the deputies who were elected by 14 million men and women in 2015. I ask that we fully use ourselves from wherever they are, to fight from every possible flank”Juan Guaidó asked the deputies who are in exile.
Among the actions to be taken for the next few days, Guaidó proposed the beginning of an information campaign, so that those who still have any doubts in the world, it is clear that in Venezuela “there is a regime that commits crimes against humanity and a systematic violation of human rights “, according to the Report of the” Detailed conclusions of the independent international mission to determine the facts about the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela “, presented by the United Nations (UN), last Wednesday 16 of September.
