“The US government is in a period of historical decline and they have nothing more to offer for the good of the peoples of Latin America and the Caribbean.

Maduro celebrated the rise of left-wing initiatives in the country and claimed that the US had “dishonored the popular and ‘progressive’ parties” in Latin America.
