Full text of the statement:
Condemn the cowardly imperialists’ attack
on President Nicolas Maduro
It is with concern we came to know about the failed cowardly assassination attempt on Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro. According to the media, the assassination attempt was made using several drones loaded with explosives while President Maduro was delivering the closing speech on the 81st Anniversary of the National Guard.
Assassination attempts on progressive leaders when they cannot be overthrown democratically, economically, politically, and militarily is the last attempt by imperialist conspirators who would not hesitate to deploy the extreme rightist opposition in the country to carry out their schemes.
We, as the JVP, vehemently condemned the cowardly attack and are relieved that no harm has come to President Maduro who, we are sure, would be more determined to continue with added vigour the progressive process he is heading in Venezuela.
The JVP always stands with progressive and left forces and their leaders and condemn all attempts by imperialists and their lackeys to deny the cause of progressive social transformation of its front-runners.
Long live the Bolivarian Revolution!
Long live International Solidarity!
