The Venezuelan government refused on Friday the remarks made recently by Admiral Kurt W. Tidd, the commander of the United States Southern Command in his report to the Senate Armed Services Committee.
In a joint notice, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Defense argued that Tidd’s presentation is part of meddling in Venezuela’s internal affairs, aimed at creating uncertainty and instability in the country, AVN cited.
"Venezuela faces significant instability in the coming year due to widespread food, and medicine shortages; continued political uncertainty; and a worsening economic situation," said Admiral Kurt W. Tidd.
"The growing humanitarian crisis in Venezuela could eventually compel a regional response," the top officer remarked.
