MADRID, 3 Sep. –
The president of the National Constituent Assembly (ANC) and vice president of the ruling United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV), Diosdado Cabello, on Monday accused the Government of Colombia of allowing the installation of paramilitary bases to attack and attack Venezuela.
“That Colombian Government allows paramilitary training bases to be installed to commit terrorist crimes and acts in Venezuela. Our colleague Jorge Rodríguez (Minister of Communication) gave details and confessions of those who were going to participate and place explosives in some places in Caracas, in some institutions such as the Palace of Justice, “he detailed during a press conference in the state of Monagas (east).
On August 31, Minister Rodríguez revealed evidence of alleged attacks with explosives against the headquarters of the Special Actions Forces (FAES), the Palace of Justice and a building located in the area of January 23, in western Caracas, the capital of the country.
Rodriguez then accused the Colombian government of promoting terrorist attack plans and said that from that territory the ex-Venezuelan military Clíver Alcalá Cordones runs paramilitary camps to overthrow the president, Nicolás Maduro.
Cabello has taken the opportunity to reiterate the rejection of the accusations of the Colombian Government, which blames Venezuela for the internal conflict in the Caribbean country.
“We condemn the constant statements of those who are in the Executive trying to link us with the origin of the resurgence of violence or that Venezuela has some type of participation or support for insurgent groups that have been operating in Colombia for 60 years,” he said.
