This Monday the Presidential Commissioner for Foreign Relations, Julio Borges, repudiated the xenophobic groups in Chile that have attacked Venezuelan migrants in recent days.
“The attack against Venezuelan migrants in Iquique deserves the total rejection of the Chilean authorities. It is an expression of xenophobia against those who seek refuge from hunger and the persecution by Maduro’s dictatorship,” said Mr. Borges in a message released through his official Twitter account.
The Venezuelan diplomat celebrated that the Chilean prosecutor’s office has decided to open an investigation in this regard.
“We hope that those responsible for these acts of hatred will answer to the law and that the Chilean justice will take measures to protect the victims,” he added.
Finally, Borges stressed that these actions do not correspond to the spirit of solidarity that Venezuelans had with all foreigners who came to our country.
“In our region solidarity and brotherhood must reign,” he concluded.
