Dominican foreign minister Vargas denies country’s air bases used to prepare Venezuela attack

Rome – The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Dominican Republic denied the Cuban government’s claim that U.S. military aircraft have landed at San Isidro Air Base as part of an alleged military action against Venezuela. After categorically denying the report, Foreign Minister Miguel Vargas reiterated that the Dominican Republic is a nation respectful of the principle of non-intervention in the internal affairs of other countries.

“As we have said on previous occasions, the solution must be found through the celebration of free elections, with the participation of all Venezuelan political actors and with the accompaniment of the international community,” he said. We therefore reject this claim, completely removed from reality, while insisting on the need for a frank dialogue, subject to the necessary guarantees that will allow Venezuela to hold new elections and overcome its worrying situation,” said the Dominican Foreign Minister, currently in Rome.

The Dominican Republic has advocated before the General Assembly of the Organization of American States (OAS) for a peaceful solution to the crisis affecting Venezuela, with Venezuelans themselves as the protagonists.
