Excerpts from an interview by journalist Granma, January, 2019.with Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro, published in
Of all the news published about Venezuela in U.S. and European media, 98% is negative. They are silent about our guaranteeing food for the people, as if bodies like the FAO had not recognized this....They say nothing of our provision of 2.5 million homes.
