Israeli and U.S. access visas to Bolivia questioned

La Paz, Dec 12 (Prensa Latina) Numerous questions were made today to the decree of the Bolivia coup government that eliminates visas to US citizens and Israelis to enter the country.

Social networks, practically the only space to express the rejection of the coup in this country, were filled with criticism regarding this new measure.

For Twitter's Compa Jorge5862 user, this decree promulgated by the self-proclaimed president Jeanine Áñez would allow mercenaries to enter freely the Andean nation.

'Now: Holidays paid to gringos mercenaries Courtesy of #jeanineanezasesina,' he wrote.

Áñez promulgated on Wednesday decree 4107 that eliminates the visa requirements for citizens of Israel and the United States 'with the aim of promoting tourism in the country'.

According to her, Bolivia needs commercial opening to increase the flow of tourism and foreign investment.

For this reason the de facto government determined to eliminate those requirements to citizens 'of two countries that are very important'.

In her speech to publicize such a determination she contradicted herself because on the one hand she pointed out that during the government of Evo Morales - overthrown by the coup d'etat - relations with other countries were subject to ideology.

And on the other hand, she pointed out that Bolivia wants to keep its policy of 'open doors to the world'.

The measure is part of her race against the clock to dismantle the entire system of government built in the 13 years of the Evo presidency.
