CARACAS, August 2 (Itar-Tass) — Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez upholds the position of Russia and China on Syria.
Speaking at a press conference on Wednesday after the return from Brazil, Chavez said he regretted that the European governments “recognise Syrian terrorists by supplying them money and weapons”.
Chavez was on a visit to Brazil due to Venezuela’s accession to the South Common Market.
Venezuela supports the position of Russia and China that “respects the sovereignty of Syria”, the president said. “If there are problems in Syria, they should be solved by Syrians themselves and by peaceful means,” Chavez said.
The president said he is convinced, “It is necessary to condemn terrorist acts, which are aimed against the people. Such acts are committed by terrorist groups, which penetrate in the country, as it was in Libya.”
The European elite “is still unable to give up the imperial ambitions”, the Venezuelan leader said. “I’m mostly surprised by the position of France. Socialists belong to left forces. But the new French government seeks to overthrow power in the sovereign country to a still greater degree,” Chavez stressed.
