The former candidate and Venezuelan opposition leader Henrique Capriles, via a message on his Twitter account, called for “respect” from Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa. “Mr President of Ecuador @MashiRafael RESPECT! Do not get into the internal affairs of our Venezuela! Venezuela is respected! “, denounced Capriles.
Meanwhile, Correa, who has expressed various opinions on the Venezuelan political scene and has expressed his support for Nicolas Maduro did not pronounce himself on the matter.
Capriles’s complaint comes after Correa openly qualified him as a “coup maker” in a fragment of an interview published yesterday by the Spanish newspaper ABC. “He is indeed a coup maker, like the entire right wing of that country,” Correa told the journalist Ana Pastor, at the Frente a Frente show in CNN.
