The second main leader of Chavismo, Diosdado Cabello, said this Monday ( 18) who hopes that Venezuela will have better relations with Colombia after the election of a new president in the neighboring country, which will be defined in the second shift on the day 19 of June.

First Vice President of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela ( PSUV), he stated that the reality of the border between the two countries cannot be “covered up” by the opinion of a president.

“Venezuela has 2.80 kilometers (border) with Colombia, this is no small feat. In some places it is more dynamic than in others (…) but there are citizens who feel Colombian and Venezuelan at the same time”, he argued.

The politician said that in Colombia there were “presidents of the oligarchy” with whom Venezuela had good relationships. “The madness started from (Andrés) Pastrana to here, openly. They planned assassinations from Colombia. Invasions, not once, but several times. Therefore, we hope that things follow the path of tranquility and peace”, he declared.

Next day 14 in June, Colombians will choose between the leftist, Gustavo Petro, and the populist, Rodolfo Hernández, in the second round of the presidential election. According to the National Registry, the entity that organizes the elections, with 60,64% of the votes counted, Petro, candidate of the Historic Pact, received 8.372.527 votes and won the first round, held last Sunday.
