The presidential commissioner for foreign relations, Julio Borges, denounced this Sunday that in Delcy Rodriguez’s trip to Trinidad and Tobago also travelled Asdrubal Chavez and other PDVSA officials on an aircraft of the sanctioned company.
Borges added that these agreements were concealed from the country and seek to continue handing out the resources of Venezuelans. “We have information that Delcy Rodriguez’s hidden trip to Trinidad and Tobago was not to deal with the pandemic. She was accompanied by Asdrubal Chavez and other PDVSA officials, who seek to sign oil and gas agreements with concealed from the country, giving away our wealth,” he said.
The foreign policy representative of the Presidency-in-Charge also pointed out that the trip was made in a US-sanctioned aircraft. “This trip, which was handled with total hermeticism by the dictatorship, was made in a PDVSA plane that is sanctioned by the U.S., and content with that, was made one day after the Treasury Department’s accusation against regime officials for narco-terrorism,” he said.
Borges also urged the Trinidad and Tobago authorities to join what has been a common position in the region and reject any kind of agreement with a dictatorship that violates human rights and is linked to organized crime. He insisted that the countries must ensure compliance with the sanctions in order to strengthen the siege against Maduro and his accomplices.
Finally, he ratified his support for President Juan Guaidó’s proposal that a National Emergency Government be formed to deal with the pandemic and achieve a definitive political solution to the crisis in Venezuela.
El viaje oculto de Delcy Rodríguez a Trinidad y Tobago no fue para tratar la pandemia. La acompañaron Asdrúbal Chávez y otros funcionarios de PDVSA, buscan firmar acuerdos petroleros y gasíferos de espaldas al país.
El avión donde viajaron está sancionado.
