We, the Ministers of Foreign Affairs of the member countries of the Bolivarian Alliance of Latin America - People's Trade Treaty, at the 15th meeting of its Political Council in Havana:
Reject the aggression and manipulation inflicted on the sister Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, as well as the deceit and lies that threaten its sovereignty, independence and stability, and those of the entire region.
Condemn the interventionist, illegal and pro-imperialist conduct of the Secretary-General of the OAS and his attempts to obstruct the sovereign right of the Venezuelan sister nation for participative democracy enshrined in its Bolivarian constitution, fully consistent with the United Nations Charter and the proclamation of Latin America & the Caribbean as a Peace Zone.

The first vice-president of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV), made public on the TV channel Venezolana de Televisión, recordings of conversations between leaders of the opposition right-wing, revealing the violent magnitude of the plans, to be executed in the short term. In the recorded conversations - broadcast last night in the program Con el mazo dando - the right-wing politicians Roberto Enríquez and Oswaldo Álvarez Paz, members of the Independent Electoral Political Organization Committee (COPEI) party, are heard talking about the issue.
The Press Office of the CC of the KKE mentioned the following in its statement on the threat of the National Electoral Council to ban the CP of Venezuela:
The KKE denounces in the most categorical way the threat of the country's National Electoral Council to ban the CP of Venezuela and stands decisively at the side of the communists and will intensify the efforts to express internationalist solidarity in a mass way.
Venezuela's National Defense Council has requested that the country's top court reconsider a decision made earlier this week, the country's presidential office tweeted Saturday morning.
President Nicolas Maduro had promised to addressed the impasse between the country's major institutions, calling a meeting this evening to resolve the differences between the Supreme Court and the attorney general.
The Federation of Cuban Workers and Cuban trade unions declare our unconditional support and militant, internationalist, revolutionary solidarity with the energetic, resounding response of worker-President Nicolás Maduro Moros, to the debate on the situation in Venezuela convoked by a small group of countries in the Organization of American States (OAS) Permanent Commission, March 28, 2017, in defense of the country's sovereignty, independence, and self-determination, asserting the dignity of Venezuela and all of Our America.
Simón Bolívar Hall which, in an affront to the Liberator, is occupied by the decadent and shameful Permanent Council of the Organization of American States (OAS), this March 28, was witness to the battle of his descendents -children of the Bolivarian Hugo Chávez - in defense of Venezuela and Our America's sovereignty, independence, self-determination, and dignity.
The battle unleashed was one of principles, against imperial and oligarchic pretensions to abridge the right of peoples and states to free themselves, exercise their sovereignty, and create the political, economic, social and cultural system they freely choose.
