Venezuela: The United States is ruled by a gangster, not a president
The White House was only trying to present itself as the savior of Venezuela
This is a clear example of how the US government wants to violate international law and impose power on the sovereignty of other independent states., emphasizes Moncada.

Moncada urged the UN Security Council to “urgently take the necessary measures to put an end to criminal and hostile policies “, led by Washington, so as not to lead to even more serious tension.
