Maduro said Venezuela will rise above its challenges

Venezuela’s President Nicolas Maduro is adamant that his country will rise above the challenges it is now experiencing, despite criticism of his leadership.

Speaking to Jamaican journalists following bilateral talks with Prime Minister Andrew Holness and other government ministers and officials at Jamaica House in Kingston this afternoon, Maduro said his country has endured hard times before and that Venezuela will emerge a stronger country on which Jamaica and others in the region can depend.

Venezuela is currently embroiled in an economic crisis resulting from a plunge in world oil prices. The South American country, which has the world’s largest oil reserves, has been facing a severe shortage of basic food items and medicine, with some analysts predicting that the country could be facing a crisis consistent with famine.

    Give Maduro a chance! He was not given an opportunity. The opposition want him out. They have been putting a lot of pressure on him. You never know, he may do better. Everyone deserves a second chance and more.

    The only way for Maduro to take Venezuela out of crisis is to resign and hand power over to the pro-democracy opposition.

        Yes, yes, Socialist Maduro, and his crazy government has screwed up venezuela. This is the first time, an OPEC country becomes poor. The mission of the CIA is the run covert action. And maduro is always blaming the america and the CIA from his fail socialist projects. So what should he expect from the CIA. I hope he is ready. Maybe “forreal” you should move to that other socialist paradise Cuba for few month, then you would appreciate what the CIA. Also the pasted or second american ambassador married CIA director william Colby

      Ridiculous comments about the CIA or Donald Trump aren’t going to work anymore now that the incompetent policies of your Bus Driver In Chief have led to starvation and death.

      The ones who have stolen the country’s wealth are the corrupt socialist regime and their cronies and beneficiaries. Ask the daughters of Chavez how they amassed the kind of wealth they have when their father has been preaching his whole career about how bad it is to be rich. Why does the former president’s brother have his own plane to travel between states when people can barely get tires and replacement parts for their vehicles. No amount of scapegoating will escape those facts.

    So your partner Chavez and you ground the economy into the ground and you still believe you have what it takes to revive the economy?
    You did not do it when the price of oil was high, what makes you think you can do it now?

    Maduro has to step aside and let someone else take charge.

    Maduro and Skeritt are the same thing, they’re both playing like they can do good for their country when in fact they are clueless as to the proper procedures to get their countries back to a commendable state. But yet still I have to say that Maduro is much wiser than Skeritt because at least at this moment he admits that Venezuela is in turmoil whereas Skeritt is defiant. He seems to be happy with the existing mass unemployment and says that Dominica has never been under better leadership than what he is currently offering, much to the satisfaction of himself and his idiotic disciples.
