Maduro denounces a global smear campaign to suffocate Venezuela

The president of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro, denounced this Friday that “a pernicious global campaign of discredit has been woven” to suffocate the country for challenging the “single system of thought” of the market economy and neoliberal globalization.

Maduro has assured that this model is the “modern version of colonization” and has warned of the “resurgence of xenophobia and aporophobia, hate speech and crimes, and intolerance” that are growing “under the shelter” of ultra-conservative parties and governments and of the extreme right, in a letter read at the UN Assembly by the Venezuelan Foreign Minister, Carlos Rafael Faria Tortosa.

The president has also made mention of the 913 economic sanctions that he describes as illegal that weigh on the country, and that according to him translate into “suffering, deprivation and systematic aggressions that limit the life and collective rights” of the country. Maduro has estimated losses from this blockade at 150 billion dollars in recent years.

He has also called for prioritizing the reestablishment of the diplomatic path and political dialogue, over military confrontation, and has assured that humanity “will not survive a world war.” For this reason, he has expressed his rejection of the interposed sanctions taken against Russia and the “hate campaign unleashed to the detriment of the Slavic people”.

The president has claimed Venezuela’s role in the international energy crisis due to its gas and oil resources and “puts on the table” its capacity in agriculture for the search for global solutions.

In addition, he has predicted a change in the post-imperial era in the face of the present crisis of the “supremacist, imperialist Western civil model that denies, attacks and tries to suppress the other, the difference.” In this sense, he has called for “ethical change” by the old powers in favor of building “a new common world.”
