MOSCOW, January 10 (Itar-Tass) – Russian government wishes an earliest possible recovery to Venezuela’s President Hugo Chavez and it believes in the importance of preventing a destabilization in that country, the Foreign Ministry said Thursday.
“We’re watching closely the progress of the situation in the friendly Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela,” the ministry’s commentary said. “With the feeling of solidarity deep at heart, we extend sincere wishes of an earliest possible full recovery to President Hugo Chavez.”
“We believe firmly that the ability to endure and stamina typical of the Venezuelan leader will help to cope with the current challenges and to return to the office,” it said.
The considerable support the people of Venezuela give to the leadership of the country “was demonstrated unambiguously in the course of the October 7, 2012, presidential election.”
“We believe that the principle of non-interference in Venezuela’s internal affairs and an unbending observance of its Constitution, the exclusive right to interpreting which belongs to the appropriate Venezuelan agencies of state power, should remain a guideline for everyone watching the complicated situation that is taking shape there,” the Foreign Ministry said in a commentary.
“In this connection, we have taken notice of a ruling of the Venezuelan Supreme Court’s Constitutional Chamber on a legitimacy of indefinite postponement of the day on which President Hugo Chavez will be expected to read out the Constitutional Oath,” it said.
“We condemn the attempts to ‘rectify’ this understanding and to influence the current events in a way that would call the verdict into question,” the Ministry said.
“What really matters now is the prevention of a destabilization in Venezuela, and all the political forces inside and outside the country should spearhead their efforts towards this objective,” the commentary said. “We urge them to display a balanced and responsible approach.”
