Ambassador to UK condemns 'ferocious media attack' in Venezuela

The Argentine ambassador to the United Kingdom, Alicia Castro, today revealed her support for Venezuelan president Nicolás Maduro as protests in the nation continued, while criticising what she saw as a "ferocious media attack" carried out by opponents of the head of state.

"Venezuela is under a ferocious international media attack. Who wins with violence? Clearly it is not the government, it is the opposition. They are inviting an uprising against the government," Castro fired in an interview with Radio La Red.

"These are not peaceful protests, they are acts intended to change the democratic order and clearly intended to force the exit of Maduro."

The diplomat emphasised that the successor of Hugo Chávez "has been democratically elected by the majority of Venezuelan people; he is there by the people's decision and that is the rule of democracy.

"That is how president Cristina Fernández de Kirchner put it: there is nothing more important than democracy, which means respecting the popular will. In no other country do they have as many elections than in Venezuela," Castro underlined.

"As an Argentine what really hurts me is that some local media and politicians insist in their support of coupmongers... We have had our first 30 years of uninterrupted democracy, and we must care for it," she concluded.
