Ecuadorean president Correa said foreign ministers will meet in Montevideo to prepare the presidential summit Ecuadorean president Correa said foreign ministers will meet in Montevideo to prepare the presidential summit

Unasur (Union of South American Nations) presidents will meet next week to respond to the “grotesque and illegal” meddling of the United States in Venezuelan affairs announced Ecuadorean president Rafael Correa.

 “On Thursday the foreign ministers of Unasur will meet in Montevideo to prepare the heads of state summit next week” said Correa who did not detail where the coming meeting is to take place.

“We will give the corresponding reply to the grotesque, illegal, shameless, unbelievable, unjustified interference of the United States in home affairs of Venezuela”, added the Ecuadorean president in reference to President's Obama Executive order describing the Venezuela situation as an “extraordinary threat” to US security.

“This is most serious. They are not statements from Obama, it's an executive order which has the power of a law and virtually sanctions all the followers of president Maduro”.

On Monday Washington imposed sanctions on seven top officials from Venezuela which includes the freezing of their assets and banning their entry to the US. The seven have been accused by the White House, following on Congress, of reiterated violation of human rights during the protests of a year ago against president Maduro which killed 43 people.

US described the situation in Venezuela as “an extraordinary and unusual threat to national security and policy” and stated a national emergency to address the issues.

    Firstly, there is NO confrontation between the US and Vnzla/Lat Am. If they were, Vnzla would be truly scared and not shouting its mouth off,
    Secondly: Ecuador is a puppet State of Vene-Cuba/ALBA, that is totally reliant on Vene-Cuba oil subsidaries, and their politiical will.
    Sad, but true.
    Thirdly: The Fool Rafael Correa inadverdently admits the truth when he says ..
    ”which has the power of a law and virtually sanctions all the followers of president Maduro”.
    hah!

    'nuff said.

    Let's all avoid becoming embroiled in cheap, local, racist slander. Look out for Vnzla starting a 'local' war with Guyana over so-called 'disputed' terrritory.
    You heard it here first!
    lol!
