LAST WEEKEND, the foreign minister of Nicolás Maduro’s dictatorship, Carlos Faría, declared that President Joe Biden would be waiting for the end of the November elections, to proceed to recompose diplomatic relations with the tyrannical regime of Venezuela, knowing that, if he did it before, the electoral cost would be extremely high.
“Midterm elections are being awaited in the United States. It is said that President Biden is waiting for that to happen so as to then, in a clearer way, set out his relationship with our government”, assured Faría.
Since taking office, the Biden Administration, like his predecessor Barack Obama, has been sending bridges and pardons to members of the dictatorial regimes in Venezuela and Cuba. A few months ago, the Democratic administration removed sanctions on a relative of Nicolás Maduro, sent a high-level delegation to Caracas for the first time in years to negotiate with the dictatorship, and in turn, proceeded to provide the Cuban regime with financing options by re-admitting remittances to the country, of which the Cuban regime appropriates approximately 70% of every dollar sent to the island.
Maduro’s Chancellor also assured that the rapprochements have taken place due to “an initiative of the Government of the United States”, which seeks a “normalization in the energy exchange, in the re-establishment of cooperation in that field”.
Faría assured that “Nicolás Maduro said (that) we are ready to reestablish that cooperation, because that, of course, would open the conditions and the doors so that we could start working on the normalization of the political aspects as well”.
The Democrats have also nominated Charlie Crist for Florida Governor with Karla Hernandez as running mate, who assured that Cubans mourned the death of the tyrant Fidel Castro, in spite of more than 60 years of torture, humiliation, murder and forced migrations of millions of inhabitants of the island.
November would be, according to this, the starting point to stop an absolute rapprochement and pardon to the dictatorial regimes of the region, or for the conservatives to retake the legislature and put back on the table the crimes against humanity that occur in the socialist dictatorial regimes of the region.
