Iran condemns US measures against Venezuela

Tehran, May 3, IRNA – Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Seyyed Abbas Mousavi condemned the US statesmen’s remarks about using force and military act against Venezuela.

Mousavi noted that the Islamic Republic of Iran strongly condemns the US efforts to carry out coup d’état or any military action in Venezuela to help promote hostility in the country.

“Threatening to use force against other countries is blatant violation of international law, especially UN Charter,” he said, adding that the UN secretary general and the international community are expected to denounce such stances and show appropriate reaction to them.

Unfortunately, international order faces threats by the war-mongers and chaos- seekers in the US administration, he said, urging the international community to undertake responsibility of curbing the moves.

Mousavi made the remarks after US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Wednesday warned Caracas government that Washington is ready to undertake military action to interfere in Venezuela's crisis.
