La Paz, November 18 – In separate statements, the governments of Bolivia, Venezuela and Ecuador today charged that representatives of the far right of their countries met with Republican legislators in the United States congress to conspire against the countries making up the Alianza Bolivariana de los Pueblos de Nuestra América (ALBA – Bolivarian Alliance of the Peoples of Our America).
“The right and the far right are meeting to evaluate and analyze and to see how they can conspire against the democratic process our country is living through,” Iván Canelas, spokesman for the Bolivian government, said in a press conference.
“This is an exteme right that has the support of political sectors” of the United States and of the media, “and is destabilizing,” warned Bernardo Álvarez, the Venezuelan ambassador in Washington.
