The ambassador of Iran in Bolivia, Reza Tabatabaei, warned, for his part, that a possible military intervention in Venezuela would represent an urgent and sensitive problem for the world.
Venezuela is going through turbulent times after the US On January 23, backed the self-proclamation of deputy Juan Guaidó, head of the Venezuelan National Assembly (AN), controlled by the opposition and declared in contempt in 2016, as interim president.
Since then, the White House has intensified a campaign that aims to destabilize the Bolivarian nation and that also contemplates the application of sanctions against Venezuelan companies and authorities, the initiative to introduce “humanitarian aid ” by force -viewed by Caracas as a pretext for a military intervention in the Bolivarian country – and more recently the sabotage of the electricity supply system, which since last Thursday has caused blackouts throughout Venezuela.
