The President of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, gave his support to the people of the United States (USA) on Wednesday, stressing that they must deal with their own electoral system.
“The US is dealing with its own electoral system, we do not meddle in the internal affairs of any country. Where is Luis Almagro to condemn what is happening in the US?” He questioned during a working meeting broadcasted by public TV.
He stressed that the US electoral process is respected by the Venezuelan government,” we do not meddle in their internal affairs because we repudiate their interference in our internal affairs and when they get involved in world elections, but they (US citizens) have also to defend themselves,” he said.
“We do not accept that anyone interferes in the internal affairs of our country, but we are attentive to what may happen in the US because world sovereignty must be respected and supported,” Maduro stressed.
