Venezuela’s Moncada at the OAS: “The Coup Failed”

The Ambassador of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela to the Organization of American States (OAS), Samuel Moncada, stressed on Friday in the Permanent Council of the organization, that the alleged humanitarian aid is only a strategy of the U.S. government to consolidate its plan of colonial conversion in Venezuela and reconquest in Latin America.

“It is the colonial humanitarianism that offers relief but ends up selling the war of conquest,” said the Ambassador, referring to the messages of the Trump government, which one day express interest in Venezuelan children and the next day threaten an invasion.

The Permanent Representative of Venezuela to the OAS, pointed out that the Venezuelan people should never receive crumbs from those who pretend to loot it and use it as a hostage; being a media propaganda to justify the military force in the Caribbean country and seize its natural resources.

“It is only a fraud, a maneuver, a manipulation (…) The U.S. government stole less than a week ago 30,000 million dollars from the Venezuelan people, now it tries to help the sick that they themselves are killing (…) the same simulation of interest, they want to help us but they kill us.

The Ambassador pointed out that the contradictory actions of Trump’s government are part of the colonialist project that he is developing with the help of the self-proclaimed deputy president, Juan Guaidó and some leaders of the Venezuelan ultra-right, who in turn, show a policy of surrender of Venezuelan resources.

He assured that the deputy to the National Assembly in contempt, Juan Guaidó, obeys Washington’s exclusive orders and that the failure of the coup d’état is so notorious that they have already abandoned the constitution to justify their actions, taking as maximum law their statute of transition without elections and without recognizing other public powers.

“They do not pay salaries, they do not order a police car, they do not produce an identity card, they do not open a school, or produce a barrel of gasoline, it is a fiction that serves their masters in the United States to plunder (…) The failed coup removed the disguise of the colonial invasion.

He pointed out that these interventionist and colonialist plans designed by irresponsible governments are leading the region to an abyss while media propaganda deceives international public opinion.

On the other hand, he rejected the gross meddling of the White House National Security Advisor, John Bolton, who has threatened some countries about doing oil business with the government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela and its constitutional president, Nicolás Maduro Moros.

“It was Mr. Bolton, the same one who today threatens India and other countries that buy oil from Venezuela, who proclaimed himself colonial administrator of Venezuelan oil.

Bolton served as ambassador to the United Nations during President George W. Bush’s term and promoted the war in Iraq. He also called for war against the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and Iran, and his name was floating among various charges – before Trump took office as president – particularly on foreign policy issues.

In his speech, Ambassador Moncada expressed pride in the Bolivarian National Armed Force (FANB) and Venezuelan diplomats working in the United States.

He also denounced the continuous attempts of bribes and threats received by the Venezuelan military, which has only doubled their will and loyalty.

“If you want to help Venezuela, do not threaten us with war and return what has been stolen,” Moncada said in reference to the Venezuelan resources blocked by the U.S. government.

The Venezuelan Ambassador to the United Nations Samuel Moncada, stated on Friday at a meeting of the Organization of American States (OAS) that there are procedures to remove Venezuela from the organization, and it can’t be done without the necessary 24 votes of members of the OAS general assembly.

“As the representative of the Venezuelan State and of constitutional president Nicolas Maduro Moros (…), the only way for me to stand up from this chair without violating international laws is that there is a resolution approved by the Extraordinary General Assembly of the OAS, where 24 member states voted for the suspension,” Moncada stated during his address at the OAS.

The Venezuelan representative reiterated that the only way of suspending a country from the OAS is by an extraordinary session of the organization’s General Assembly and that the resolution needs to have 24 votes to be approved.

“The lie collapses, the fraud collapses, do not keep lying, get the 24 votes in the Assembly and I’ll leave here legitimately.”

Samuel Moncada also denounced that the United States government stole over USD$30 billion from the Venezuelan people.

“Mr. Trump proclaimed himself the owner and lord of the natural resources, territories and inhabitants of that colony that he now calls Venezuela, and we have a real epidemic of autoproclamations,” he said.

He then explained that the U.S.-backed coup d’etat against the Bolivarian Government is only effective in Washington, “where everyone celebrates the sacking of our nation, but it is a failure in Venezuela.” He argued that the illegally self-proclaimed “interim president,” Juan Guaido, is the one in Venezuela defending “the measures of economic suffocation against our people because they produce the necessary suffering so that the necessary military decide to support him.”

“If you want to help Venezuela, do not threaten us with war and return what has been stolen,” the diplomat said in reference to the resources blocked by the U.S. government, as part of the unilateral and illegal sanctions imposed against the South American country.
