Lavrov and Huanacuni denounced U.S. President Donald Trump’s threat of military intervention against Venezuela as “unacceptable,” reaffirming the South American country’s right to self-determination. Both leaders also stressed that the only solution to the country’s political turmoil is dialogue.

“We agree on the need to overcome, as soon as possible, the discrepancies existing in that country through national dialogue, without any external pressure,” Lavrov said.

“Also the inadmissibility of threats of military intervention in the internal affairs of that country, which has been condemned by the overwhelming majority of Latin American countries.”

During the press conference, Huanacuni said that Venezuela is “seeking its own democratic process” and that is important to “be able to generate dialogue with respect for sovereignty and rejecting any intervention in the country.”

Both diplomats are expected to discuss issues of common interest, such as the upcoming Forum of Gas Exporting Countries to be held on Nov. 24 in Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia. Forum participants include Algeria, Bolivia, Egypt, Equatorial Guinea, Iran, Qatar, Libya, Nigeria, Russia, Trinidad and Tobago, United Arab Emirates and Venezuela.

Huanacuni also stressed the importance of cooperation between Russia and Bolivia in military affairs and said Sucre is preparing for the visit of the country’s Deputy Minister of Defense.

Since Bolivian President Evo Morales took office in 2006, the South American country has enjoyed friendly relations with Moscow.

While the U.S. employs brute military force in the Muslim world to obtain foreign policy objectives, soft coups are reserved for Latin America.

Cesar Navarro, Bolivia’s minister of Mining and Metallurgy, emphasized Wednesday that the main objective of the United States is to implement soft coups in order to reestablish hegemony over Latin America during a speech launching a new book, according to Prensa Latina.

The official was commenting on “Geopolitics and Regional Integration — Latin America in the World System,” a compilation which includes a variety of prominent Latin American intellectuals.

He noted that while the United States employs brute military force in parts of the Muslim world to obtain foreign policy objectives, soft coups are reserved for its southern neighbors or as top U.S. officials — including former U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry — refer to the region as its “backyard.”

To support his claim, Navarro cited the removal of democratically-elected Manuel Zelaya in Honduras; Fernando Lugo in Paraguay; and Dilma Rousseff in Brazil, describing how the United States supported their ouster despite the fact that it goes against all claims of supporting democracy.

Prensa Latina reported that the mining minister stressed that the current strategy of the U.S. government is to destroy the Bolivarian Revolution in Venezuela, a nation that has the largest oil reserves in the region.

He also recalled that the United States is focused on commandeering 40 percent of the planet’s aquifers and other fresh water resources which are located in South America.

The United States has well over 700 military bases around the globe, with roughly 80 of the total number of bases located in Latin American countries.

“Geopolitics and Regional Integration” includes texts by such authors as Atilio Boron, Jose Gandarilla, Alfredo Jalife-Rahme, Monica Bruckmann and Ana Esther Ceceña. The book addresses issues related to varying forms of domination imposed in the Western Hemisphere, natural resource disputes, conflict risks, and other pressing issues of our time.
