Venezuela’s Presidential Commissioner for Foreign Affairs, Julio Borges, said Wednesday that the government of Trinidad and Tobago must join what is a common position in the region, which is to have no relationship with or fund a dictatorship that promotes drug trafficking and terrorism within the hemisphere. He also noted that there are frontmen of the regime involved in operations in Trinidad and Tobago to help the dictatorship evade sanctions.
“Trinidad and Tobago must join what is a common position of the region: not to have political or economic relations with a regime that violates human rights and protects narco-terrorism. Maduro is a threat to the hemisphere and its exit is a decision of the free world,” he said.
The foreign policy representative of Juan Guaidó’s government also highlighted that there are people linked to the regime who have triangulated with companies in Trinidad and Tobago to avoid sanctions. “We have information that regime’s frontmen have been triangulating with companies in this country to evade sanctions and help the dictatorship,” he said.
Similarly, Borges insisted that Delcy Rodriguez’s trip to the neighboring country was with the objective of signing oil and gas agreements to continue squandering Venezuelans’ money. He welcomed the fact that the opposition in Trinidad and Tobago has taken this issue as its banner and thanked them for their support to the Venezuelan democratic struggle.
Finally, he assured that despite the Covid-19, the international community is very attentive to what is happening in Venezuela and therefore firmly supports the proposal for a National Emergency Government presented by the president in charge, Juan Guaidó.
