Foreign Minister Félix Plasencia believes that the United States made its intentions clear after leaving Afghanistan, after the Taliban took power.
Faced with the violent events in the Asian country, the foreign minister said on his twitter account "The imperial intentions were in evidence, the defense of the sovereignty of the peoples is indisputable."
Plasencia spoke after the secretary of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America - Peoples' Trade Treaty (ALBA-TCP), Sasha Llorenti, earlier commented on the role of the United States in the Afghan crisis.
Llorenti indicated “that after the events in Afghanistan, and the constant instability in Libya, it is clear that it is necessary to defend sovereignty to guarantee peace. He considers that in light of what is happening in both nations, it should be very clear that the defense of sovereignty and independence is not an abstract slogan, instead it is an inescapable duty for the peace and development of the countries ”.
