Maduro on Int'l Al-Quds Day: Long Live Palestine's Al-Quds
On the occasion of International Al-Quds Day, Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro voices his support and respect for the Palestinian people.
While receiving delegations in the 17th Congress of the Women's International Democratic Federation (WIDM) held in Caracas, Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro reaffirmed his solidarity with Palestine and the Palestinian people on the International Al-Quds Day.
He also wrote on his Twitter account, "I join the International Day of Al-Quds, raising my voice together with the prayer of millions for self-determination and respect for the Palestinian people. Venezuela condemns the extermination in Palestine and reiterates its absolute support for this cause, Long live Free Palestine."
Me sumo al Día Internacional de Al-Quds (Jerusalén), elevando mi voz junto a la plegaria de millones por la autodeterminación y el respeto al pueblo Palestino. Venezuela condena el exterminio en Palestina y reitera su apoyo absoluto a esta causa. ¡Viva Palestina Libre! pic.twitter.com/D2PkEHNA8J— Nicolás Maduro (@NicolasMaduro) April 29, 2022
President Maduro reiterated his support for the Palestinian cause in an interview with Al Mayadeen back in December.
He stressed that no one in the world dares to ask Caracas to abandon Palestine. "We cannot accept such demands. It is a sin to simply think about abandoning Palestine or leaving it by itself."
"Palestine is humanity's holy land, and we have the Palestinian land in such high regard. We hear the name 'Palestine' loud and high," Maduro affirmed, condemning the Israeli occupation's crimes against Palestinians, saying "Israel" would pay for them one day.
