“The media has also made a gross lie against Venezuela.  In fact, yesterday in Washington there was a meeting with the OAS at the request of Secretary General Luis Almagro where they presented a report on Venezuela with a huge amount of lies, seeking international intervention for Venezuela.  You know that our foreign minister has said and even our own president Nicolas Maduro has acknowledged that Venezuela is undergoing socioeconomic changes at the moment.  It is a reality that we do not want to hide but what we want is that the world knows the truth about what is happening.  But the media is trying to portray an image that we are killing each other.  We have large supplies of food and oil and Venezuela under President Nicolas Maduro is facing this crisis of the oil plummeting has established changes through other mediums and that’s why we have signed agreements with other countries for the supply of food production and medicines.”


Petrocaribe will officially celebrate eleven years in Belize on June twenty-ninth.
