Russia Insider reports:
Bolivia’s president Evo Morales warned that the USA would pay a high price for any act of aggression against Venezuela. He also called on US President Barack Obama to apologize for the recent announcement that Venezuela presented a threat to the national security of the USA. Sputnik reported him as saying further that his country was ready to fight against the USA. “Bolivia is the beloved child of Simon Bolivar and is ready to fight for this land and to fend off any act of aggression by the United States against Venezuela”, the news portal Noticias24 reported Morales as saying.
Apparently he made this announcement during an emergency session of the “Bolivian Alliance for the People of Our America” (ALBA), an economic and political alliance of nine Latin-American states.”In view of a threat such as this, this is the perfect moment for us to draw even closer together”, the president said. He added that he would prefer tor see the USA as a true defender of peace and not as a country that maintains its global hegemony through force.
“I want to tell you that this unity (ALBA) should be strengthened, because I really believe that the United States fears a democratic, peaceful and economic liberation of Latin America and the Carribean.” Morales further said.
Bolivia’s president has been extremely critical of Washington since the failed coup attempt in 2008. Morales himself has held the Bush administration directly responsible for giving the go-ahead to the coup.
