Yesterday at a press conference, the former presidential candidate and leader of the Venezuelan opposition, Henrique Capriles, described the president of Ecuador, Rafael Correa, as “irresponsible”, for saying that he is a “coup maker”, and also ensuring that he supported the coup against Hugo Chavez in 2002, during an interview with Ana Pastor for the Frente a Frente program of CNN.
“Statements made by the Ecuadorian President are unacceptable, and irresponsible,” said Capriles. “Mr. Correa (…) crossed the line, he has no right to qualify any Venezuelan and he must respect our country,” he added.
Also, Capriles insisted that “the coup makers are others” and told Rafael Correa to present evidence, “because if he doesn’t, he would be a liar, irresponsible,” said the opposition leader, who yesterday warned the Ecuadorian president to “not get involved in the internal issues of Venezuela.”
Meanwhile, Maduro defended his Ecuadorian counterpart. “Move forward brother President Correa, soon we will see each other to continue uniting our beautiful South American peoples of Ecuador and Venezuela,” said the president.
