Venezuelan Embassy in Dominica says Situation in Venezuela is Normal
The Embassy of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela in the Commonwealth of Dominica would like to clarify to the people of Dominica that the situation in Venezuela is presently normal.
The Embassy says that on February 12th, the day in which they celebrated the Bicentenary of “Youth Day” they experienced some disturbances caused by sectors of the Opposition; disturbances that caused damage to various public institutions, squares, official vehicles and injured police officers.
As a consequence of these events three people have lost their lives, and they are presently investigating this matter to identify those responsible.
The Government was forced to expel three officials from the Embassy of the United States of America, for their involvement in these protests, with the objective of overthrowing the democratically elected Government led by President Nicolas Maduro.
They also reject the despicable blackmail of the Sub-Secretary of State of the United States of America made to the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela through a spokesperson.
The Embassy also says thanks to the various governments of the world, for their solidarity with Venezuela.
