There was so much discussion about the “exclusion” of the three allied dictatorships of Vladimir Putin at the Summit of the Americas that its main leader, Nicolás Maduro, took advantage of the tailwind to travel to Turkey and thus coincide with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov . The “people’s president” himself had already warned him, who likes so much expectation campaigns in his Creole version: “I invite you to be attentive to the agenda of international activities that we will have in the next few hours. It will be of interest and geopolitical importance “.
In this way, the Eurasian tour, as the Miraflores Palace has baptized it, has been brought forward in a few hours to the official opening of the continental conclave in Los Angeles, on which the support headed by the Mexican president, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, weighs. , at three revolutions.
“We express our admiration for his clarity and courage. Send us support for his request for a new organization where all the countries of the Americas participate, without exclusion or discrimination,” said the “people’s president” before flying to Ankara, while in the days dedicated to civil society in the Californian city, those persecuted by revolutions and populist governments have exposed their plight to the world.
The governments close to Maduro not only have the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC), chaired by the Argentine Alberto Fernández, who is expected in Los Angeles in the next few hours. Also with the defunct Union of South American Nations (Unasur), encouraged in his day by Hugo Chávez, which Maduro now hopes to resurrect before the majority of leftists who calculate in the region. If Gustavo Petro wins the second electoral round in Colombia and Lula da Silva confirms the polls in Brazil, they would add a front of seven allied governments against the loneliness of Uruguay, Paraguay and Ecuador. Precisely the Uruguayan president, Luis Lacalle, has fallen off Joe Biden’s guest list by testing positive for coronavirus.
Maduro and the Turkish president, Recep Erdogan, maintain a common agenda based on a “pluricentric and multipolar vision”. Beyond the geostrategic chessboard, the Turkish government has helped Chavismo to evade US sanctions, especially with the purchase of gold that comes out of the mines of the Mining Arc and from State coffers. His profits were millions.
Also on Lavrov’s agenda is the discussion with Erdogan about the maritime corridors in the Black Sea and, as the optimists believe, a new attempt at negotiations with Ukraine.
“It is a curious coincidence that Lavrov and Maduro travel to Turkey practically on the same day. Nothing in politics happens by chance. It is clear that there are instructions from Russia for its main antenna in the region, which is Venezuela. It is also clear that Maduro has managed to position his narrative in terms of his exclusion in the same way as those of the Cuban and Nicaraguan regimes, and I mention his narrative, because he has had the help of López Obrador in Mexico and Alberto Fernández in Argentina, raising his voice for the three autocracies of the region”, considers analyst Walter Molina Galdi for EL MUNDO.
“This anti-democratic group has its international strategy well armed. That is why Maduro travels to Turkey and before doing so he spoke about CELAC,” he concludes.
