The document, which was released by the US State of Department, reads that the country maintained a “permissive environment” favoring a number of terrorist groups
Through a communiqué, the Venezuelan Foreign Ministry deplored as defamation against Venezuela the Country Reports on Terrorism 2015 issued by the US Department of State.
The ministry stated Venezuela does not back practices connected with terrorism and added that this is a country without such kind of violence.
The report reads that the South American nation maintained a “permissive environment” that benefited terrorist groups, involving individuals linked to the Colombian Revolutionary Armed Forces (FARC), National Liberation Army, Basque Fatherland and Liberty (ETA), as well as Hezbollah “sympathizers.”
Similarly, the document reports that the local government has not taken stance against top officials allegedly involved in drug trafficking and that it has not cooperated with US antiterrorism efforts.
