The Argentine human rights movement Mothers of the Plaza de Mayo issued a statement addressed to the people of Venezuela and President Nicolás Maduro on Saturday, Friday 18. The Mothers sent their message after learning about Operation Puma, former Argentine President Macri’s plan to invade Venezuela.
The current head of the emblematic human rights organization, Hebe de Bonafini, on behalf of her organization, expressed solidarity towards Venezuela. She apologized for former President Mauricio Macri’s undertaking of Operation Puma to militarily invade Venezuela.
This message comes after Argentine Defense Minister Jorge Taiana made public documents about the planned military operation from the Intelligence Directorate of the Armed Forces of Argentina. Vladimir Padrino López, defense minister of Venezuela, condemned the plan and the Macri administration at a press conference earlier this week.
Both Argentina and Venezuela have agreed to undertake a thorough investigation. Major General Padrino López held a telephone call with his Argentine counterpart Jorge Taiana in which they discussed the progress of the investigation.

A translation of the full statement of the Mothers of the Plaza de Mayo is presented here:
To President Mr. Nicolás Maduro and the people of Venezuela:
We want to ask your forgiveness, for not having found out, at the time, of the intentions of the Nazi Mauricio Macri, who is capable of anything and who is a henchman of the Yankees and a servant of the United States.
We, from our beloved homeland, assure you that we are going to continue our struggle so that our president recognizes the legitimacy of your government and opens an embassy as is mandated by our Constitution.
An embrace to the beloved people of Venezuela,
Hebe de Bonafini.
