TEHRAN, Saturday January 10, 2015 - Venezuela's President Nicolas Maduro on Saturday denounced his country’s right wing opposition for  conducting a campaign aimed at causing social chaos and destabilization in the South American nation.

Speaking from the Iranian capital, Tehran, where he arrived on Friday from China, Maduro said the right wing  strategy is to create artificial shortage of household commodities in Venezuela and then generate scenarios of violence, chaos and distress ; as part of the economic war that the opposition has embarked on.

In light of this,  the Venezuelan president called on the people "to work, unity, peace and commitment to the homeland."

Last Thursday the Venezuelan president also called on the union to isolate violent and fascist groups seeking to destabilize the course of integration of the peoples of South America and thus to foster the development of a multicenter pluripular world. "We are going to continue the good start heading 2015, against sabotage and threats," he said.

War geopolitics

Referring to falling oil prices, the Venezuelan president pointed out that this was "due to geopolitical decisions that seek to affect Russia, Iran and Venezuela". Therefore, he insisted that  there should be an end to this geopolitical war  in order to stabilize oil prices and the international market.

President Maduro noted that the drop in oil prices is an opportunity to work more and find strategies to replace other production models.

Along with his counterpart, Hassan Rouhani, Nicolas Maduro said on Saturday a meeting in the Iranian capital, Tehran, where they pledged to continue strengthening the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), in the context of the global fall in prices crude.
