Caracas, Apr 16 (Prensa Latina) Venezuelan Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza stated today that the U.S. government uses warmongering propaganda to justify military interventions in sovereign nations and to appropriate its natural resources.
‘Imperialism cannot openly confess that it waged wars over oil, gas, trade routes, or to promote its arms industry. That is why, it claims it is to protect the victims, for democracy, for freedom. Perverse propaganda of war!’, expressed Arreaza on his Twitter account.
The foreign minister condemned the aggression perpetrated last Saturday by the United States, France and the United Kingdom against several targets in Syria, in a unilateral action without the discussion or approval by the bodies empowered to do so in the United Nations.
‘With the illegal use of violence, the attacking countries openly violate sovereignty, the right to life and all human rights of the Syrian people,’ denounced the Venezuelan government in a statement issued by the Foreign Ministry.
Venezuela condemned the fact that Syria was targeted by the Western powers despite the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons had not yet sent its experts to the field to investigate the alleged use of chemical weapons by the Syrian army, a pretext used to launch the attack.
