USA Behind Coup Attempt in Venezuela, Says Morales
La Paz, Apr 16 (Prensa Latina) The Government of Bolivia considered today that the US questioning of electoral results in Venezuela is a way to trigger instability in that country in order to justify a coup and intervention.
In a press conference today, President Evo Morales rejected the attitude of a Whote House spokesperson, who demanded yesterday a vote recount because of the tight margin between the two main candidates Nicolas Maduro and Henrique Capriles.
“I am certain that behind those remarks, the United States is preparing a coup d’ Etat in Venezuela,” Morales denounced, who described the US spokesperson’s attitude as interference in the internal affairs of Latin America, and questioned the White House’s moral authority to question electoral results worldwide.
“I would like to express that this is a flagrant US interference in Venezuela’s democracy, as neither that spokesperson nor the US government has moral authority to question electoral results in any Latin American country or around the world,” he said.
Morales confirmed his attendance to Nicolas Maduro’s inauguration next Friday as an expression of support to his government.
Last Sunday, Venezuelan Acting President Nicolas Maduro won 50.75 percent of votes against Capriles’ 48.97 percent.
