The note says that Venezuela and its government reject the interventionist statements made by 12 of the 14 nations that make up the U.S.-backed group.
The Venezuelan Minister of Foreign Affairs Jorge Arreaza will deliver a protest note on Wednesday to 12 of the 14 countries of the so-called Lima Group for their interventionist declaration made in the framework of the inauguration of President Nicolas Maduro.
The Top Venezuelan diplomat said the protest note communicates Venezuela’s rejection of the interventionist actions of this group, sponsored by the United States.
Last Friday, the Lima Group made up of some Latin American countries, together with the U.S.. and Canada issued a resolution in which they requested that the Venezuelan head of state not assume his new mandate and transfer it to the National Assembly, which has been in judicial contempt since 2016, so that it calls for new presidential elections.
President of Venezuela Nicolas Maduro said that after being legitimately elected, he will go to be swearing in this Thursday, Jan. 10 before the Supreme Court of Justice, as mandated by the Venezuelan constitution.
Several world leaders including the Bolivian President, Evo Morales and Cuban Miguel Diaz-Canel will be attending along with representatives of social movements and business organizations from Canada, Peru, Argentina, Guatemala.
