No ‘Humanitarian Crisis’ in Venezuela: Report

Alwaght- Western media outlets have been accused of spreading fake news on “humanitarian crisis”  in Venezuela amid a US-led plot to take over the oil-rich country.
According to a report by Venezeulan Telesur TV, the "humanitarian crisis" is being used by Western countries to justify a continuous attempt to undermine the sovereignty of the country.

The report notes that, Western media and states have been citing a “humanitarian crisis” in Venezuela to justify the United State’s claims for humanitarian intervention, despite the fact that the South American nation does not suffer from the levels of violence, hunger, and diseases that war-torn countries face.

The “humanitarian crisis” is a category of the International Humanitarian Law which refers to crisis born of nature or man-made disasters like war. These crises then get transnational aid from various governments and international organizations.

The Organization of American States (OAS) led by Luis Almagro, who backs US interventionist policies is also crying “humanitarian crisis” in Venezuela.

While these organizations and countries are ready to blame President Maduro for this so-called crisis, they are turning a blind eye to the fact that the U.S. sanctions are the main reason for economic problems in the country along with private companies boycotting Venezuelan goods.

During a recent interview with the BBC, President of Venezuela Nicolas Maduro said the Western media are only interested in showing the 4.4 percent of extreme poverty.

Calling out the fakeness of the humanitarian aid for “hungry” people of Venezuela, the President said to BBC, “It's very simple if you want to help Venezuela, release the billions of dollars in resources that belong to us. So don't come with a cheap show, a show of indignity, of humiliation, where they offer $20m dollars in food that is toxic, and rotten.”

Meanwhile, Venezuelan Defense Minister Vladimir Padrino Lopez says the country’s troops will remain stationed along the borders to prevent any territorial violations amid a constant threat of military intervention by the United States to overthrow the elected government of President Maduro. On Monday, US President Donald Trump reiterated that his administration stood behind opposition leader Juan Guaido and called on the military to allow "humanitarian" aid into the country.
