He stressed that the dialogue process has progressively advanced, “especially because it is dealing with the part of the stateless opposition that attacked the country's international assets, which conspired for Venezuelan society to implode and shouted for the blocking of the accounts international, in addition to arriving at the gall to request military intervention ”.
Regarding the sabotage of the National Electric System last Sunday, he said that this is part of the violent strategy of desperate groups that try to destabilize the country, to return with the script of the spiral of violence and once again, to try to distort democratic stability in our country.
