The presidential commissioner for Foreign Relations, Julio Borges, affirmed this Tuesday that Nicolás Maduro’s dictatorship is more isolated than ever and that the international community will not cease its pressure until democracy is restored in the country.
“Maduro is more isolated at the moment. The European sanctions were a forceful blow, as the dictatorship had promised its collaborators that there would be no more international pressure and that a time of normalization would come, especially with Europe,” Borges said.
The senior official of the Legitimate Government, assured that “what the dictatorship does not understand is that the world is not going to stop and it is not going to give Maduro a truce until it allows a reestablishment of democracy through free elections. So this process is going to escalate and Maduro’s circle has to understand that it is better to seek a transition instead of continuing to support a dictator with no future.”
Similarly, Borges explained that although Maduro tries to look strong with arbitrary actions such as the expulsion of the EU ambassador in Caracas or the attacks against the foreign minister of Spain for making visible the misery of Venezuelan migrants, he knows that the spurn and rejection is unanimous against his regime.
He also recalled that there are more than 200 accomplices sanctioned by the United States and 55 by the European Union, after which he made a call to unify efforts to make the international siege more effective.
“The multilateralism of international pressure is what will lead to greater effectiveness in the siege against the regime. There are countries and people who help Maduro loot the wealth of Venezuela to strengthen his repressive apparatus, that is inadmissible and one way to combat it is with multilateralism,” he concluded.
