In a communiqué, the Venezuelan Foreign Ministry rejected on Wednesday the statements issued by US State Department Spokesperson Victoria Nulan regarding the current situation of Venezuela.

Venezuela regarded the statement as "a new and grotesque meddling of the Government of Washington in Venezuela's domestic affairs."

The ministry said that the statements are in line with the "destabilizing and corrupt Venezuelan right-wing."

"The Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela is a Social State under the Rule of Law and Justice, with its own solid institutions, as set forth in the Constitution of 1999 based on the sovereign will of the Venezuelan people. Within the framework of the Democratic Revolution that the People's Power has been shaping for 14 years, the only possible transition is towards the Bolivarian socialism under the leadership of the revolutionary Government of Commander Hugo Chávez," the communiqué reads.

In her statements on Tuesday, Nuland said, "Should President Chávez become permanently unavailable to serve, our understanding is that the Venezuelan Constitution requires that there be an election to elect a new president."
