The President (E) of Venezuela, Juan Guaidó, mentioned the serious migration crisis that Venezuela is going through while Nicolás Maduro’s regime finances guerrilla groups.
“Maduro’s dictatorship expelled more than five million Venezuelans and preferred to protect and finance irregular groups,” he replied on his Twitter account to the United States Ambassador to the UN, Samantha Power.
The national president assured that this reality can be glimpsed in the Apure state, where Venezuelans are being forcibly displaced from their homes due to the armed confrontation between guerrilla groups in the area.
“The forced migration of our people and the humanitarian drama will only stop when we achieve free and fair elections,” he concluded.
The US ambassador to the United Nations, Samantha Power, denounced this Monday that more than 5.5 million Venezuelans have fled the country since 2015, being the second largest migration in the world behind Syria’s with 6.6 million migrants.
