Caracas - The workers of the Ministry of Industries and National Production condemned the recent accusations by the US government against Minister Tareck El Aissami.
In an official communiqué, employees and workers from the sector noted that El Aissami's inclusion on the list of the ten most wanted drug traffickers is unacceptable and aims to tarnish the Bolivarian leader's honor, dignity and morality.
With these moves, the White House is attempting to undermine the people's capacity and confidence in their leaders, who have proved their worth during their long careers, thus striking the Bolivarian Revolution with media attacks, the document reads.
Likewise, the signatories of the statement rejected the accusations by a government that shelters self-confessed assassins like the international terrorist Luis Posada Carriles, or drug traffickers like those protected in its military bases in Colombia.
The First Vice President of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV), Diosdado Cabello, also expressed his solidarity with El Aissami, who is also vice president for the Economic sector, and noted that such attacks are groundless.
Cabello pointed out that the accusations of the Trump administration aim to discredit the Venezuelan Executive and undermine the people's trust in it.
