Chokwe Antar's Statement on the Attempted Assassination of Venezuelan President Maduro

I am deeply shocked and concerned by the August 4 assassination attempt on President Nicholas Maduro of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela. This hostile and vile act should be condemned by all desiring democracy, peaceful resolution of conflict, and self-determination of nations. We are thankful that such an act of terrorism was not successful. My Administration and I express our solidarity and prayers with the Venezuelan people and President Maduro.
