CARACAS, August 17 (Itar-Tass) - Venezuela is recalling its ambassador to Egypt, President Nicolas Maduro said on Friday. He described the ongoing unrest in that Arab country as a “blood bath.” Venezuela's interests in Egypt will be represented by its charge d’affairs until further notice.
Speaking in Caracas, Maduro said that Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood and the ousted president Mohamed Morsi had made many mistakes.
“Now they have to pay dearly for that,” Maduro said. “They had thought that following the US imperialist strategy and their feeble support for the Palestinian people would earn them Washington’s blessing, but it was a mistake.”
Maduro placed the responsibility for the current sanguinary violence in Egypt on the imperialists.
“Fascist circles in our country would like something like the current events in Egypt happen in Venezuela, too,” he warned.
