"...the purpose of his administration and all the aggression and sanctions against Venezuela was to make the Venezuelan society collapse..."
On Monday, after the signing of agreements with his Iranian counterpart, President Nicolás Maduro, during his statement, referred to the recent statements of former President Donald Trump where he acknowledged that the sanctions imposed on Venezuela sought to seize the wealth and Venezuelan oil.
“There have been many campaigns against Venezuela, two days ago, former President of the United States, Donald Trump declared his crime, a crime against humanity, against the people of Venezuela; he declared that the purpose of his administration and all the aggression and sanctions against Venezuela was to make the Venezuelan society collapse so that the imperialist power of the United States were able to appropriate our oil and our wealth.”
“A good lawyer would say: by confession of the parties, a change of power is due,” Maduro added.
“Trump has confessed his guilt in the crime against humanity and the noble and peaceful people of Venezuela,” Maduro stated.
