Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro said Wednesday during his presentation to the UN National Assembly that his country is a permanent victim of diplomatic, economic and media aggression by the United States.
“I bring the voice of a country that has refused to surrender throughout history, to injustice, to empires, yesterday slave and colonial; today also neocolonial slavers. I bring the voice of a historic people, who rose up from the aborigines, from the native peoples who for centuries resisted the domination of the colonial empires, “he said at the beginning of his speech.
He questioned the president of the United States Donald Trump for having spoken with disdain of his Government. He accused him of playing a role of judge of the party and police of the world. “Our country is harassed, Trump attacked the noble people of Venezuela, raising the doctrine that 200 years ago founded the empire of the states and determined since then what was going to constitute its interventionist role,” he said.
Just a day before Trump told reporters at the UN headquarters that the Chavista president could be quickly overthrown by the military if that will existed. Venezuela quickly responded through its foreign minister, Jorge Arreaza, who said that his country is ready to defend the regime and that “the example of Vietnam, a military failure of the United States, may be short.”
He asks for dialogue
At another point in his speech, he said that despite the ideological, historical, social, abysmal differences with the president of the United States, Donald Trump is willing to shake his hand and sit down to discuss their bilateral differences.
“Donald Trump is worried about Venezuela, I am willing to talk with an open agenda about all the topics he wants to talk about, with humility, with sincerity. Venezuela holds the flags of the dialogue of civilizations as president, promotes the practice of international political dialogue, through the understanding of politics, and not of force. “
Requests investigation of the attack
He demanded the implementation of an “independent investigation” on the attack with drones that he suffered on August 4. Maduro asked the United Nations to appoint a “special delegate” to take charge of this “international” investigation and linked the United States and several Latin American countries with what happened. “Venezuela is open.
The doors of our country, of our justice system, are open to establishing the direct responsibilities of this aggression, ” said the Venezuelan leader.
He reiterated his accusation that the attack “was planned from the territory of the United States” and said that he has transmitted to Washington the “name” of the “intellectual authors, financiers and planners” of the same.
This is not the first time that Maduro attends the UN General Assembly, in which he already participated in 2014 and 2015. On those occasions, he had said that Venezuela permanently supports a conspiracy of the imperial forces and allies of the United States, which claim Undermine democracy.
