By accusing others of narco-terrorism, the US is trying to distract attention from the health crisis, Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro said at a Cabinet meeting on March 26, which was broadcast via the President’s Twitter account.
Maduro called the US accusations against representatives of the Venezuelan authorities of allegedly engaging in narco-terrorism unfounded. He noted that over the past 15 years, Venezuela has reached record indicators in the fight against drug trafficking. “A narco-state has been formed in Colombia,” Maduro emphasized.
According to the Venezuelan President, the US charges against him are aimed at diverting attention from the health crisis facing the United States due to the spread of coronavirus infection.
Earlier, the U.S. Department of Justice accused Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro and other representatives of the country’s leadership of facilitating drug trafficking to the US and announced a reward for information that will lead to their arrest. Information about Maduro was valued at $15 million and at $10 million each for information on other government representatives.
