Venezuela's Ambassador to Syria Jose Biomorgi reached out to allies within the Syrian government ahead of President Nicolas Maduro’s inauguration, at a symposium in Damscus on Thursday.
Biomorgi said the “Bolivarian revolution” would “carry on winning in Venezuela, whatever the schemes to destabilise Venezuela would be.”
The newly-appointed ambassador also criticised right-wing governments in Latin America.
The symposium in Damascus forms part of a diplomatic effort by Caracas to drum up support for Maduro’s second term from so-called friendly countries. Especially, as the US and Latin American neighbours ramp up the pressure.
The US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo vowed to use the full weight of US economic and diplomatic power to press for democratic reforms in Venezuela.
Last week. a regional bloc known as the Lima Group signed a statement claiming Maduro's new six-year term as illegitimate, as the election on May 20, 2018 was not fair and free.
