Ecuadorian crisis: Chávez urges the US "to keep its imperialist hands" out of the region


Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez said that the Unites States “provides million dollars to far-right wing movements to destabilize the governments of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Americas (ALBA)”.

"We must demand the US government to keep its old imperialist hands out of this continent," Chávez said in Buenos Aires, where he attended an extraordinary meeting of the Union of South American Nations (Unasur), which was urgently convened following a police revolt in Ecuador.

The Venezuelan president warned that the United States "provides millions of dollars to far-right wing movements; many of them are trying to destabilize the governments of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Americas (ALBA)," DPA reported.

Chávez added that such destabilization plans are "particularly aimed at countries whose governments are legitimate and democratic. We have raised the banner of socialist revolution in democracy."

"The US Department of State says that presidents such as Chávez, Bolivia’s (Evo Morales, and Rafael Correa, are totalitarian and authoritarian dictators, but it plots coup d’états," the Venezuelan President said before leaving Buenos Aires.
