​Venezuelan Constituent will issue decree rejecting declaration of the Lima Group

The National Constituent Assembly (ANC) of Venezuela will issue a decree on Tuesday in rejection of the declaration issued by the Lima Group on January 4.

In statements to the press, the president of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro Moros, assured that the plenipotentiary will "make very decisive decisions on the Lima Cartel issue and the positions taken by the governments that make up the coalition."

The Lima Group urges to ignore the presidential oath of Nicolás Maduro, elected by the Venezuelan people in elections in May 2018, while condemning the performance of the Bolivarian National Armed Forces (FANB) by expelling two ExxonMobil ships that allegedly they were in their jurisdictional waters.

In that sense, Maduro described as "outrageous" the statement in which 13 of the 14 countries that make up the right-wing alliance decided not to recognize the new mandate of the head of state, and they urged him way to decline before the National Assembly, parliament in contempt, to establish a transitional government.

'All the points of the Lima declaration are outrageous. How can foreign governments pretend to give orders to Venezuela? ", The president asked himself, while assuring that Venezuela does not receive mandates from foreign authorities.

The president, who will be sworn in by the Supreme Court of Justice for the constitutional period 2019-2025, urged to defend in the destiny of the fatherland and the decision of the majority of the electors manifested last May.
