Venezuela’s Maduro rips Vatican ‘compendium of hatred’
July 22, 2021
CWN Editor's Note: Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro condemned a statement by Cardinal Pietro Parolin, the Vatican Secretary of State, as a “compendium of hatred” against his country. Cardinal Parolin had sent a message to a businessmen’s organization, saying that political and economic crisis in Venezuela would end only “if Venezuelans, and especially those who have some political responsibility, are willing to sit down and negotiate in a serious way.” Maduro has clashed frequently with the country’s Catholic bishops, who have condemned the government’s suppression of democracy.The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
