“We see clearly that they want to repeat the same situation that took place in Chile, they are applying the same script and the want to have it end in a military coup,” Ortega stated.

Rafael CorreaEcuadorean President Rafael Correa also pointed out the similarities with the current aggression being waged against Venezuela and to what happened in Chile which led to the brutal military dictatorship of General Augusto Pinochet.

“We are reminded of the economic warfare that was carried out by the Chilean elites against Salvador Allende once they realized that they could not achieve victory in the ballot box and were defeated in the legislative elections in 1973,” said Correa.
