CHAVEZ: I have no interest in maintaining diplomatic relations, nor an office, nor trade nor anything with a state like Israel
August 9, 2006
Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said he wants to break Venezuela's diplomatic ties to Israel, blasting the Jewish state's attacks against Hezbollah in Lebanon.
In a speech broadcast on state television, Chavez said it was "for sure" that Venezuela was severing relations with Israel following two days of diplomatic tit-for-tat embassy withdrawals. "They also withdrew their ambassador and what is for sure is that we are breaking diplomatic relations," he said. "I have no interest in maintaining diplomatic relations, nor an office, nor trade nor anything with a state like Israel."
In his television appearance Tuesday, Chavez said: "You see what Israel is doing: bombing cities, finishing off the entire country, it doesn't matter that there are children, women, dead mothers embracing their children." The Venezuelan president earlier accused Israel of "terrorism and pure fascism."
Inilah setitik air dari Chavez. Di mana pula setitik air dari mu?
