Syria vehemently condemns the US plotting of a coup d’état against the President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, the Foreign and Expatriates Ministry said on Monday.
An official source at the Ministry lashed out at the US conspiracies that have long targeted Venezuela, saying they aim to undermine the political, economic and social achievements of the Venezuelan people.
The latest of which was the plotting of a coup d’état against President Nicolas Maduro, an attempt the source said “was schemed by circles linked to the US police” and targeted the president’s life.
The coup attempt was announced a number of days ago by President Maduro, who said the US-backed plan included a plot to destabilize Venezuela and target democracy in the country, stressing that it was foiled.
The Syrian government, the source added, voices its full solidarity with the people and leadership of Venezuela in the face of the US conspiracies “against the Bolivarian revolution.”
Committed to its binding relationship with Venezuela, “which has withstood all attacks,” Damascus reiterated that it stands “in the same trench” with the Venezuelan people, the source added.
Syria, the source said, demands that these conspiracies plotted by the US against Venezuela be stopped, dismissing them as violations of international law and the UN Charter.
