Foreign Minister Arreaza to Pompeo: Your Failure in Venezuela is Absolute, Accept it with Resignation

“The Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela once again calls on the government of the United States to acknowledge the failure of its destabilizing strategy against the nation aimed at promoting regime change,” posted Jorge Arreaza, the Venezuelan Minister of Foreign Affairs. On Sunday, Arreaza told the US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo that he has definitively failed in his interventionist strategy in Venezuela, and suggested Pompeo recognize it “calmly and with resignation.”

The Venezuelan top diplomat wrote: “A zombie spoke! Although according to his boss (Donald Trump) the fraud was committed in the US elections.” This was in response to Pompeo’s tweet alleging that an “electoral fraud” is being carried out in Venezuela.

After exercising his right to vote on December 6, Arreaza stated, “The only opinion and recognition that interests us is that of the humble Venezuelan woman, and that of the Venezuelan man, who came to vote today, and even those who have not come to vote.”
