Foreign Ministers of ALBA meet in Caracas
Venezuelan FM Elías Jaua thinks that whoever who wants links with Venezuela should respect
Jaua told inter-state TV channel Telesur that the appointment on Thursday will be a "very interesting" political council of the ALBA, where issues such as the reelection of Ecuador's President Rafael Correa and Cuba's Raúl Castro will be discussed. Additionally, a stance will be taken on, among others, the election to be held in Paraguay next April, Efe quoted.
Minister Jaua also referred to the comments lately made by US State Department spokesperson Victoria Nuland, about the Venezuelan political state of affairs and the health condition of Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez.
"Again, whoever willing to hold relations with Venezuela must do it on the grounds of common respect, non-meddling in internal affairs, as we are not to interfere in the affairs of third countries."
They are marching in step to the same tune. There is a coordinated effort to position the idea. The Twitter hashtag #YoSoyVictimaDeLaGuarimba (I'm a victim of "guarimbas", or protest barricades) can be read on all pro-government Twitter accounts, including those of the ruling United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV), the National Assembly's Press Office, the state-run food distribution network PDVAL, state airline Conviasa, the Venezuelan embassies in foreign countries, radio stations and the huge media network responsive to the Government's interests and messages.
