The Venezuelan President blames the United States for the worst refugee crisis to hit Europe since WWII
Nicolas Maduro accuses the US of throwing the Middle East into a whirlpool of wars that has provoked the current refugee crisis now being faced by countries across Europe.
RT reports: “It is Europe that has to deal with the disaster caused by the US, because it is Europe that is now taking in thousands of migrants and they don’t know how to cope with this situation,” he told RT during his visit to China for V-Day celebrations commemorating the 70th anniversary of the end of WWII.
Maduro emphasized that many of the world’s problems ranging from the refugee and migrant crisis in Europe to armed conflicts in the Middle East and ISIS were the results of the US long-lasting policy.
“By deception, they invaded the country [Iraq] that is a cradle of civilization – and razed it the ground. Now is it literally split into thousands parts and engulfed by terrorism in its cruelest form,” he said.
“Who bombed Libya? Who took the lives of more than 100,000 Libyans? Who is now bombing Syria? Who financed the terrorists that are now seeking to destroy it?” he questioned.
“The US has caused a real disaster, chaos and now it wants to cause chaos in other regions of the world.”
