Vargas Llosa: Venezuela is a total disaster, a chaos

"(Venezuela) is a country that, instead of moving forward, is going backwards; it features the highest inflation rate in Latin America," Peruvian writer Mario Vargas Llosa stressed. He is worried about Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro maintaining "the messianic ideas" of his predecessor (late President Hugo Chávez)

Peruvian writer Mario Vargas Llosa is "very concerned" over the direction Venezuela has taken over the last years, and remarked that the country "is a total disaster, a real chaos; where demagogy, corruption, and violence abound."

"(Venezuela) is a country that, instead of moving forward, is going backwards; it features the highest inflation rate in Latin America," Vargas Llosa remarked in an interview with news agency Efe apropos the publication of his new novel "El héroe discreto (The discreet hero)" in Spain, Latin America, and the United States. As usual, the writer seized the opportunity to give his opinion about current issues.

He asserted that, unlike his country, Peru, and other Latin American countries, whose economic situation have improved; Venezuela is "a negative exception" to that outlook.

"Venezuela's case is rather tragic," the writer asserted. He is also worried about Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro maintaining "the messianic ideas" of his predecessor (late President Hugo Chávez) to turn Venezuela "into a headlight, an example" for other countries.

"However, I'm afraid that Venezuela is rather the exception to the rule. Nowadays, there are more countries in Latin America where democracy is developing, featuring modern economic policies which are leading to progress and development," Vargas Llosa remarked.
