The President of the Republic, Nicolás Maduro, congratulated the Colombian people and Gustavo Petro after his inauguration as President of Colombia, this Sunday in the city of Bogotá.
Through his Twitter account, the Head of State greeted the Colombian people and their new president.
«I extend my hand to President Gustavo Petro and the Colombian people, to rebuild brotherhood on the basis of respect and love. Let’s take advantage of this second opportunity mentioned by the new President of Colombia, for the sake of happiness and peace. Congratulations!” Maduro posted.
By recognizing Nicolás Maduro as the constitutional president of Venezuela, the elected president of Colombia, Gustavo Petro, opens a door for a refreshing of bilateral relations, historian Ydelfonso Finol said on Sunday.
“It is interesting that Petro said that the constitutional president of Venezuela is Nicolás Maduro. This allows a refreshing of relations between Venezuela and Colombia, and the normalization of contact between the embassies of our nations », he said during the program Here with Ernesto, broadcast on VTV.
He asserted that the brotherhood between Caracas and Bogotá is still in force, since it was determined by the Liberator Simón Bolívar, who this Sunday celebrates 239 years of his birth.
On April 7, the socialist government of Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro celebrated the delivery of a record 4 million homes to its citizens as part of a social housing program called the Great Housing Mission of Venezuela (GMVV). During a joint radio and television broadcast, President Maduro emphasized that the handing over of the 4 million homes was a “historic” event and a “world record.” “Nothing and no one is going to stop us,” he added.
The GMVV’s 4 millionth house was handed over in the “Bicentennial Battle of Bomboná” urban development, located in the Sotillo municipality in Anzoátegui state by Governor Luis Marcano. During the telecast, Governor Marcano proudly reported that “those who today inhabit these 200 homes were working on its construction.”
Venezuelan far-right politician and fugitive from justice Leopoldo López has expressed his repudiation of the recent rapprochement between the Joe Biden administration and the Venezuelan government of President Nicolás Maduro.
López, who escaped to Spain to evade criminal responsibility for his crimes in Venezuela and remains under protection in Spain also denounced the fact that White House sent a delegation to Miraflores Palace to meet with President Maduro.
López also repeated his stance on imposing so-called “free elections” in Venezuela, entirely disregarding the Constitution of the Bolivarian Republic.
