Freddy Bernal warned of the creation of a so-called “army of liberation” by the Venezuelan right-wing opposition
The socialist leader and protector of the Venezuelan state of Táchira, Freddy Bernal, warned that the Agency of the United Nations for the Refugees (UNHCR) might be providing funds to "irregular groups" that intend to attack Venezuela.
In an exclusive interview for teleSUR, Bernal urged the U.N. agency to decide on whether to collaborate with armed groups that intend to take action against Venezuela. However, he said the government and Venezuelans in support of Maduro were grateful for the position of the United Nations as a whole in that the body made it clear it would not participate in the interventionist agenda of the United States and reaffirmed its recognition of the elected government of President Maduro.
Bernal also warned that the United States is moving towards a new form of war against the South American nation.
"A new form of war is being prepared, internal chaos through paramilitaries and irregular groups through attacks on police installations, security and selective assassinations of political and military leaders," added the Bernal.
During the interview, Bernal reiterated the denouncements made by Vice President Delcy Rodríguez, and Ambassador of Venezuela to the U.N. Samuel Moncada in which they warned of the creation of a so-called “army of liberation” by the Venezuelan right-wing opposition
Bernal’s appointment as a protector of Táchira by President Maduro year ago made him head of the security staff at the state’s border region with Colombia given that it is an unstable border area due to smuggling and drug trafficking.
