The president of the National Assembly and vice-president of the PSUV, Diosdado Cabello, has returned from his trip to Brazil, where he claims to have made important advances in the pharmaceutical front of the economic war.
According to the Agencia Venezolana de Noticias: “The recent visit to Brazil of the president of the National Assembly, Diosdado Cabello, has strengthened the strategic alliances between the two nations in the area of food products and medicines, the distribution of which has been affected by the destabilization plans of the Venezuelan ultra-right and its economic war, which aims at creating anxiety [zozobra] among the population.”
“They are seeking to create anguish among the population,” explained Cabello, “through the economic war, which is characterized by speculation, overpricing, and smuggling of basic products. (…) This has happened not only with milk, but also with sugar, personal hygiene products, and now with medicines.”
Cabello also said that the distribution of the imported medicines will be strictly controlled by the government because, he explained, the pharmaceutical labs in Venezuela are in cahoots with the destabilizing plans of the “Venezuelan ultra-right.”
