The Communist Party of Chile reiterated its support for peaceful dialogue regarding Venezuela and rejected interventionist agendas by the West.
The Communist Party of Chile (PC) Monday reiterated its opposition to interference in the internal affairs of Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela by interventionists countries like the United States. It also spoke for a solution based on political dialogue.
Guillermo Teillier, the President of the Chilean Communist Party said that the organization’s position on Venezuela is "unalterable" and it will continue to favor a solution based on dialogue and will reject all confrontation.
His comments came after Saturday’s violence at the Venezuela-Columbia bridge border.
According to witnesses, violent right-wing opposition members torched the "humanitarian aid" trucks with Molotov cocktails and then tried to incriminate the Bolivarian National Guard (GNB) and the Bolivarian National Police (PNB). teleSUR's Madelein Garcia reported that the trucks were supposedly trying to enter Venezuela, but were then burned on the part of the bridge that belongs to Colombia.
Teillier condemned the self-proclaimed “interim president” Juan Guaido’s constant seeking of foreign intervention in Venezuela. He also criticized the Chilean government’s support of the confrontations and the presence of Chile’s President Sebastian Piñera at the Colombia-Venezuela border.
To create an environment of dialogue, the United States’ sanction and the threats of armed intervention in a sovereign country must be stopped immediately according to the President of PC.
Teillier stressed that both the United Nations and the International Red Cross refused to be part of the delivery of so-called “humanitarian aid” and pointed out that if anyone really wants to help the Venezuelan people should do so through the internationally recognized bodies.
Teillier warned that issues related to Venezuela have helped to cover the problems that the Chilean government is presented with internally.
The president criticized what happened Saturday in front of the Venezuelan embassy in Santiago when groups expressing their solidarity with the government of Nicolas Maduro were rebuked by presumed Venezuelan immigrants who made fun of the thousands of Chileans killed and disappeared by the Pinochet dictatorship.
He denounced that among the participants in this kind of counter-demonstration, there were some who were identified and recognized as members of the Independent Democratic Union (UDI), a far-right Chilean party.
