Venezuelan cardinal says regime pursues ‘totalitarian and militaristic’ system
October 03, 2017
CWN Editor's Note: Cardinal Jorge Urosa Savino of Caracas met with Pope Francis this week, to report on the deteriorating situation in Venezuela. The cardinal says that the government is promoting “a failed political and economic project that is the socialist, communist, Marxist, totalitarian and militaristic system.”
The Venezuelan prelate said that the government has “tried to set up the trap of dialogue,” promising negotiations but not engaging in good-faith talks. The Vatican has consistently called for negotiations to end the Venezuelan political stalemate.
