The Cuban Institute of Friendship with the Peoples, ICAP expressed on Tuesday in Havana its support to Venezuela and its Chavista leader in a declaration issued in Havana and published by ACN.
The Cuban Institute of Friendship with the Peoples, ICAP strongly condemns the assassination attempt against the President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro last Saturday during a military parade in Caracas.
At the same time, we express our support to the Bolivarian Revolution, which continues to suffer the aggressions and threats of the imperial enemy in alliance with the traitors and fascist forces and those that give in to the mandate of the superpower.
The Cuban people, attacked, blockaded and victims of terrorist actions understand well the value of solidarity. That is why; we express our full support to the brothers and sisters of the land of Bolivar that stand up with dignity in face of the terrorist act.
The media campaign, economic and coup escalation against Venezuela and the government of Maduro have reached the extreme of this horrendous act, as expressed in the Cuban Revolutionary Government's recent declaration; "constitutes a desperate attempt to obtain, through the means of assassination, what they were not able to get in multiple elections, or through the coup attempt in 2002 against the then President Hugo Chavez, oil coup in 2003 and the non-conventional war deployed through media campaigns, sabotages and violent and cruel acts".
The advances achieved in Our America during the last 18 years, starting from the triumph of Commander Hugo Chavez, the governments of ALBA member nations and progressive countries are seriously threatened today due to the development of regional right wing sectors supported by Washington. This terrorist attack is part of plans to prevent the consolidation of the rebirth of the Bolivarian Republic.
Despite the political and media campaigns against Venezuela; Bolivarian Venezuela is still standing and fighting to maintain its achievements.
Before the recent and embarrassing campaigns and imperialist threats that attempt to destroy the Bolivarian Revolution, we ratify the words of the President of the Council of State and Ministers Comrade Miguel Diaz-Canel Bermudez before the Constituent National Assembly of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela during his official visit to the South American nation:
"Our solidarity with Venezuela, with the Bolivarian and Chavista Revolution, with the civic-military union of its people and its President Nicolas Maduro is invariable.
The Bolivarian and Chavista Revolution, the courageous people of Venezuela and President Nicolas Maduro has supported many nations of our region. We have a debt of gratitude with this country since its independence.
Venezuela now needs our solidarity; they need the support of the peoples of Our America in its resistance against the criminal political, diplomatic, economic and financial war against them".
We urge all the progressive and democratic forces of the world to lift a wall of solidarity that stops the imperialist aggression and allow a peaceful and creative development of the Venezuelan people in the construction of a future of peace and prosperity for its people.
Long Live Libertador Simon Bolivar!
Long Live the Eternal President Hugo Rafael Chavez Frias!
Long Live President Nicolas Maduro!
Long Live the Courageous Venezuelan People!
Long Live the Bolivarian Revolution!
Long Live the Great Homeland of Latin America and the Caribbean!
Onward to Victory!
