Venezuelan Secretary of State Jorge Arreaza has demanded that US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo “no longer use” the Caribbean nation to hide what he described as “failures” in addressing the coronavirus crisis from the North American government.
“Stop using Venezuela to hide your mistakes and failures,” he said on Twitter, stressing that “such a pandemic is not combated by conspiracies or disinfectant prescriptions.”
Arreaza warned Pompeo that “the fact that” the pandemic in the United States has exceeded one million cases with more than 60,000 painful deaths and that the economy is suffering is the sole responsibility of its government “.
Venezuelan diplomacy chief believes that “the U.S. Navy should take care of its contagion cases and not risk its troops in fictitious media diversion operations,” regarding the naval operation to combat drug trafficking in the Caribbean. “Have the courage to deal with your humanitarian crisis,” he urged.
