Maduro announces meeting with new owners of Globovisión
The Venezuelan president stressed the need to build a new television "to sanitize fascism in our society"
"The new owners of Globovisión asked me (for a meeting). I will do it. I do not know them; I do not know who they are," said the president at the Miraflores presidential palace.
Regarding his meeting on Monday with the owners of private TV stations Venevisión and Televén, Gustavo Cisneros and Omar Camero, respectively, Maduro said the meeting was intended at the "construction of a new television in Venezuela for peace, to sanitize fascism in our society. It is my duty as head of state."
"I will not accept anyone promoting fascism in Venezuela," he stressed.
A group of some 60 Venezuelan economists from across the country and from different generations and backgrounds, has met regularly in the past couple of years and now has brought forth a document explaining the reasons of the current emergency and outlining specific proposals on how to address the serious economic crisis the country has plunged into over the last three years.
