The Hague has “in fact given the Americans a free hand to use its former colony as a springboard for aggressive intervention” in Venezuela’s affairs, says Maria Zakharova
MOSCOW, WILLEMSTAD – The United States has got cart blanche from The Netherlands to use Curaçao as a springboard for aggressive intervention in Venezuela, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told a news briefing on Thursday.
“We’ve taken note of the agreement signed between the Netherlands and the United States on using Curaçao’s infrastructures for humanitarian supplies to Venezuela,” she said. “At first sight this agreement merely opens access for US officials to Curaçao’s infrastructures exclusively for providing humanitarian aid, but, as it has turned out, this deal does not rule out the possibility of using not only civilian but other means of delivery. Of what type? Clearly, military ones.”
“In the context of the current realities The Hague has in fact given the Americans a free hand to use its former colony as a springboard for aggressive intervention in Venezuela’s affairs under the cover of humanitarian slogans,” Zakharova stated. “We hope that the Curaçao authorities will not allow the island’s territory to be used as a springboard for another Western adventure capable of destabilizing the situation in the region.”
