At the 19th ALBA-TCP Summit of Heads of State and Government, the President of the Plurinational State of Bolivia, Luis Alberto Arce, said that the Bicentennial of the Battle of Carabobo is an important date to Venezuela and the peoples of America, where Bolívar’s genius gave us all the glory of the Great Colombia.
Arce affirmed they are currently working so that neither in Bolivia, nor anywhere else in the region, coups d’état and anti-democratic and neoliberal methods be repeated.
“We have resumed the path of the people, and we join liberating victories so that the will of the great, free and sovereign Homeland is respected. It’s a moral imperative of our history,” said Arce.
The Bolivian president apologized for the abuses and violations of rights against the diplomatic missions of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuelan and the Republic of Cuba by the de facto government that preceded him.
President Arce affirmed that the Bolivian people has always recognized Venezuela’s and Cuba’s support in region regarding the unwavering desire for the freedom and sovereignty of the peoples and the popular will at the ballot box.
Arce added that they have resumed Bolivia’s economic, social, collective model by reducing poverty and working for the memory, truth and justice so that illegal coup-mongering forms of State do not occur again in the region.
Finally, Arce pointed out that they celebrate the Great Homeland and the Alliance for life and independence on the commemoration of the Bicentennial of the Battle of Carabobo.
