The Communist Party of India (Marxist) condemns the assassination attempt on the President of Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro. Drones containing explosives were detonated close to the presidential platform when he was addressing a military parade to mark the 81st anniversary of the Bolivarian National Guard.
According to reports, the perpetrators of the attack are linked to the ultra-right wing forces through whom the US is carrying out its attempts to destabilise Venezuela. The assassination attempt is the latest in its bid to destabilise the democratically elected government of Venezuela.
The CPI(M) denounces the assassination attempt on President Maduro. It also denounces the US attempts to destablise Venezuela and other Latin American governments, which are resisting its intervention in the internal affairs of their countries. The CPI(M) expresses its solidarity with President Maduro and all the people of Venezuela who are resisting US imperialism.
