Maduro asks Washington to rectify upon ambassador nominee's statements

President of Venezuela Nicolás Maduro referred to statements by Samantha Power, who Wednesday criticized the actions of Cuba and Venezuela in the region. "Who is behind the failed plan to disturb Venezuela? The US imperialist government," claimed Maduro, adding that Venezuela is strengthening unity and integration with the support of the peoples of Latin America and the Caribbean. "Nothing will stop us"

President of Venezuela Nicolás Maduro late on Thursday demanded the government of US President Barack Obama to rectify immediately, upon the statements issued by Samantha Power, the US ambassador nominee to the United Nations.

"I repudiate and reject in their entirety the ambassador's intemperate, unjust and aggressive statements," Maduro said during a ceremony in Monagas state, east Venezuela.

Maduro referred to the remarks uttered by Power, who on Wednesday criticized the actions of Cuba and Venezuela in the region. "Power says she'll fight repression in Venezuela? What repression? There is repression in the United States, where they kill African-Americans with impunity, and where they hunt the youngster Edward Snowden just for telling the truth," admonished Maduro.

He warned that "the fascist right-wing applauds the US imperialism's interference in Venezuela and seeks to return to power to surrender the country to them again."

He criticized the fact that Washington talks of respect and improvement of relationships: "We cannot believe in any US imperial government ever." Maduro stressed.

"Who is behind the failed plan to disturb Venezuela? The US imperialist government," claimed Maduro, adding that Venezuela is strengthening unity and integration with the support of the peoples of Latin America and the Caribbean. "Nothing will stop us"

He said Venezuela is increasingly strengthening relations with China.
