Pyongyang, June 15 (KCNA) -- Right-wing reactionaries of Venezuela are now going on the rampage demanding a referendum calling for the resignation of the president, creating social disorder and confusion.
Commenting on this, Rodong Sinmun Wednesday recalls that the
Venezuelan government took such measures as declaring a state of
emergency to cope with the prevailing situation and hails them as
entirely just ones.
The commentary goes on:
Many countries of the world express full support and solidarity with
those measures, but only the U.S. is ratcheting up sanctions against
Venezuela, describing those measures as "actions against democracy."
The ulterior aim of the U.S. is to bring down the left-wing
governments in Latin America by all means and methods and thus turn the
region into its "tranquil backyard" without any anti-Americanism.
The U.S. is the arch criminal making the situation in the Latin American region complicated.
The U.S. should stop giving a shot in the arm of the right-wing
reactionary forces of Latin American countries including Venezuela and
halt at once its interference in the internal affairs of the region.
Issues in Latin America are the internal matters which should be
solved by the peoples of the region and, therefore, the U.S.
interference in them is unjustifiable.
The Korean people extend invariable support and solidarity to the
struggle of the left-wing forces in the region including Venezuela which
hold fast to the stand of independence and socialism against
imperialism and boost mutual cooperation, and hope that the situation in
the region will return to normal as early as possible. -0-
