The government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela expresses its most energetic condemnation of the attempts at destabilization promoted by the United States government against the government and people of Iran.
The Bolivarian government is surprised that a group of governments, led by the US Empire, is repeating a campaign of violence to divide the people of Iran, thus contravening the elemental rules of peaceful coexistence, non-interference, and respect for state sovereignty.
The government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela condemns these deplorable practices that pose a threat to peace, international stability, and the laws and institutions of the Islamic Republic of Iran, as a guarantee of coexistence and peace of the Iranian people.
Finally, the people and government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela express their appreciation for and solidarity with the people and government of Iran for their tireless struggle for the consolidation of the Islamic Revolution.
