The Argentine government has condemned what it terms “clear efforts of destabilization” in Venezuela, following Wednesday's clashes which left three dead and dozens injured on the streets of Caracas.

 With references to 'speculation' by corporations and financial groups, allegedly conspiring to oust legitimate governments democratically elected, the release reiterates many of President Cristina Fernandez criticisms when referring to the Argentine situation.

“After recent events in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, the Argentine government reiterates its strong support for the constitutional government elected by the citizens of that country, and notes the clear efforts of destabilization that confront institutional order in our brother nation” the Foreign Ministry signaled in a press release on Thursday.

“It should be remembered that the Venezuelan people elected peacefully and democratically President Nicolas Maduro less than a year ago, 14 April 2013, and ratified its decision on the course followed by confirming the ruling party's victory at the municipal elections of last 8 December”.

“The legacy of repression, massive abuse of human rights and deepening of poverty left by the ferocious military dictatorships that devastated Latin America has reaffirmed as a priority duty for democracies of our region an active solidarity and common defense against the actions of authoritarian groups, corporations and those linked to financial and production speculation which pretend to govern by mere force of facts, imposing their sectors' interests and replacing legitimate governments supported by popular will”, adds the release from Hector Timerman's ministry.

“Finally, the Argentine Republic laments that these incidents have caused several deaths and injuries, and awaits an investigation that determines those who are responsible for them,” the statement concludes.
