On Monday, Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza endorsed the principles of Venezuela’s sovereignty and self-determination in the face of repeated pressure from the United States government to interfere in the country’s political affairs.
In a message posted on the social network Twitter, Ariza dismissed statements by US official Juan Gonzalez, special advisor to President Joe Biden, about the possibility of pushing for “free and fair elections” in the South American country.
Biden’s advisors haven’t learned from (Donald) Trump’s fiasco in Venezuela. They do not understand that we are a free people and do not give in to anyone’s pressure.
The Venezuelan Foreign Minister affirmed that his country is “holding free and fair elections,” while “in the United States there are doubts about them,” he said.
Venezuela will go to the polls on November 21 to elect the country’s 23 governors and 335 mayors, as well as members of regional legislatures and municipal councils.
The renewal of the National Electoral Council and the call for elections were part of the National Dialogue Table agreements established in September 2019 between Nicolás Maduro’s government and various opposition parties.
