“With national pain, we see how the sovereignty and Venezuelan soldiers are in a vulnerable situation, being assassinated in a conflict between guerrillas protected by Nicolás Maduro,” said the President in Charge of Venezuela, Juan Guaidó.
The national leader classified as a shame that the military high command has not given a concise answer of the exercise of sovereignty and the defense of the nation.
“It is a necessary and a constitutional mandate to protect our homeland, violated today by the irregular groups that the dictator protects,” he said.
Guaidó affirmed that Iván Márquez and Jesús Santrich, leaders of the Colombian guerrillas who present in the national territory, should be prosecuted and subjected to justice.
“Why do they continue to protect them? Vladimir Padrino and Remigio Ceballos I ask you: Who answers for this?” He pondered.
Finally, the President in Charge sent a message of condolence to the families of the soldiers killed in Apure, assuring that the country recognizes the sacrifice of the victims.
