Venezuela's President Maduro Deplores Plans For Western Military Attacks On Syria
President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro Moros, on behalf of the Venezuelan Government and People, strongly rejects and condemns any attempt by the imperialist powers to intervene militarily in the Syrian territory, using as an excuse the attack with chemical weapons, which was perpetrated by unidentified elements, on 21 August of this year.
In the events of recent days, all the typical elements of the imperialist plans to invade countries, subjugate peoples and trample their dignity are observed, leaving devastation and death in their trail.
In order to justify their act of barbarism, the United States along with its allies accuse the Syrian Government, in the absence of any evidence at all, and without awaiting the conclusive report of the UN Commission.
The Government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela denounces that the threats made by the United States and its allies against Damascus repeat the same pattern of lies and manipulations used against Libya, Iraq and Egypt. They just want to obtain control over the oil wealth of the region and to expand the western markets.
The United States and the NATO member countries have armed and trained terrorist squads in Syria, in order to intervene and maintain control over the country. This has led to a war for the conquest and destruction of the Syrian people that has been a bulwark of civilization and a bastion of stability in the Arab Region.
The Government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela holds the imperial forces responsible for putting the world on the threshold of a disastrous war of incalculable consequences for mankind.
The President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro Moros, and the Venezuelan Government and People reiterate their deep bonds of friendship with the Syrian Arab Republic and ratify their commitment to make every effort to achieve peace for the Syrian people, respecting its sovereignty, self-determination, independence and territorial integrity.
