Attack on the Venezuelan people
The Head of State made a parenthesis to denounce what was an attempt to inject hatred in the Fedecámaras Assembly, with a letter read by an unknown priest on behalf of the Vatican's Foreign Minister in Venezuela, Pietro Parolin.
He considered that said letter was not actually from the Vatican Chancellor, and showed his suspicion of an attempt to involve a high Vatican official in a meeting of private Venezuelan businessmen with the National Government.
"I believe that he did not send that," considered the Venezuelan president about the alleged letter from Parolin, who has a lot of work in Rome to be worrying about businessmen meeting in Fedecámaras, but he also threw the hot ball so that he would agree to respond to those who say that he wrote the poisoned missive, ”he said.
