The Executive Vice President of Venezuela, Delcy Rodriguez, asked the Paraguayan president, Mario Abdo Benitez, to “honor the debt” that his country owes the Caribbean nation before leaving office.
“I didn’t mean to waste my time at the III EU-CELAC Summit to respond to US errands in the person of Mario Abdo Benitez. I only remind him that before leaving the presidency he honors the debt he has with Venezuela instead of his empty monologue. Venezuela will never bow down!” wrote On twitter.
Rodriguez referred to the debt of close to 300 million dollars that Petroleos Paraguayos (Petropar) has with Petroleos de Venezuela SA (PDVSA).
The Venezuelan official is in Brussels, Belgium, on the occasion of the III Summit of Heads of State and Government of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (Celac) and the European Union (EU), which started on Monday and ends on Tuesday .
“Rob the Venezuelan people”
In a speech at the People’s Summit, which was held within the framework of Celac, Rodriguez spoke, among other things, of the plan to seize the Venezuelan oil wealth that former US President Donald Trump (2017-2021) confessed, and which came together with the imposition of blockades and economic sanctionsas well as with the promotion of an alleged parallel government headed by the former opposition deputy Juan Guaido.
“It was a very well conceived plan by Donald Trump: create this figure to rob the Venezuelan people, to steal your assetsto steal your money from banks, to freeze all kinds of properties that Venezuela has abroad,” he said.
And he continued: “This is what our history has been about, the plundering of the resources of our peoples, that imperial arrogance that thinks it owes us nothing. We tell them: They do owe us, they do owe the Caribbean what the genocide meant of more than 70 million slaves who came from Africa to America. Of course they owe us moral, ethical, and economic reparation.”
