FANB rejected far-right plans to use paramilitaries to disturb the peace

On the other hand, the document recalls that Operation Republic “Presidential Elections 2024” has already been launched, through which the free exercise of the vote and security conditions for voters, voting centers and electoral material will be guaranteed. .

“We will not tolerate acts of any nature that threaten the normal development of this process, and we will act forcefully within the framework of the Constitution and the laws, as well as the humanistic character that characterizes us, in order to guarantee the Venezuelan people their peace. and democracy,” the text states.

The aforementioned statement is reproduced in full below:

The Bolivarian National Armed Forces strongly rejects the nefarious pretensions of the Venezuelan extreme right, made public knowledge by a group of paramilitaries called Self-Defense Conquistadoras of the Sierra Nevada, which operates illegally in the sister Republic of Colombia. Such intentions involve acts of sabotage to the infrastructure of national basic services; attacks against the physical integrity of citizen Nicolás Maduro Moros, Constitutional President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, our Commander in Chief; undermine the stability of the legitimately constituted system of government; in addition to terrorist actions to be carried out in border states. All of the above would have the purpose of generating a feeling of civil war in our country, when arguing fraud in the elections of July 28 of the current ones.

It is not at all strange that this radical opposition sector once again resorts to the script of violence; It is enough to remember extremist events in recent years in which their participation was reliably demonstrated. Now they are once again exhibiting their anti-democratic side precisely on the eve of an election day, which they seek to take advantage of to hide their true fascist face. It should be noted that in their nefarious interests, they have always had the advice and collaboration of agencies of the North American government, which does not rest in its perverse ambitions to end the Bolivarian project through the well-known pattern of "forced regime change."

However, each of these events have been met with the firm and determined position of the Venezuelan people and their Armed Forces, which in a perfect civic-military fusion, have known how to respond without hesitation, with patriotism, dignity and self-determination.

The FANB reiterates its irreducible commitment to remaining faithful to its democratic traditions. In this sense, Operation Republic “2024 Presidential Elections” has already been launched, in which, as it has historically done, the free exercise of the vote by all citizens, their security, and that of the voting centers will be guaranteed. and electoral material. We will not tolerate acts of any nature that threaten the normal development of this process, and we will act forcefully within the framework of the Constitution and the laws, as well as the humanistic character that characterizes us, in order to guarantee the Venezuelan people their peace and its democracy. We will remain alert to destabilizing plans and will ensure, at all costs, the comprehensive defense of our beloved nation.
