• Cuba condemns attempted coup
Republic of Cuba’s government strongly condemns
ongoing attempts to carry out a coup d’état against
the constitutional government of the Bolivarian
Republic of Venezuela and the violent incidents
organized by fascists groups which have caused
deaths, dozens of injuries, attacks on public
institutions, the burning of vehicles and
destruction – as denounced before the world by
President Nicolás Maduro Moros.
Cuban government expresses its full support to the
Chavista Bolivarian Republic, and calls for broad
international solidarity, with the conviction that
the Venezuelan people will defend the irreversible
conquests they have made, the legacy of President
Hugo Chávez Frías, and the freely, autonomously
elected government, led by President Maduro.
is important to recall that the events which
occurred yesterday, as youth and the Venezuelan
nation commemorated the bicentennial of the heroic
battle known as La Victoria, are similar to those
which occurred April 11, 2002, which, at that time,
were amplified by accomplice governments and the
corporate media, as part of a coup, later defeated
by a popular mobilization and the victorious return
reaffirms its unconditional support of the valiant,
concrete efforts made by President Maduro and the
political-military leadership of the Bolivarian
Revolution to preserve the peace, integrate all
sectors of society and promote the socio-economic
development of this sister nation.
Havana, February 13, 2014.
