Government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela
President Nicolás Maduro Moros, on behalf of the Government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela and its people, calls on our Arab brothers to wave the flags of their most just causes, as well as their historical struggles for unity, independence, peace and sovereignty, at times when it is necessary to claim the rights of the peoples of the world, especially those of the Arab world, to live in peace in such a way as to preserve and protect the human, historical and cultural heritage of their territory.
Our dear Supreme Commander, Hugo Chávez, deeply loved the Arab peoples, and he therefore defended with passion the Palestinian cause, always flying the flag of liberty and sovereignty. We, his heirs, continue his legacy and, at the same time, ratify our commitment to friendship and solidarity with our Arab brothers; we stand against any imperialist attempt to invade and violate sovereignty anywhere in the world.
Today, when the Syrian people have become the focus of imperialist attacks, the government and people of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela reaffirm their support for their fight against these unjustified warmongering aggressions; be assured of our support and fraternity; furthermore, we sincerely hope that the campaigns of hate, destruction and death against this noble and heroic people will cease.
