Venezuelans have an independent country that does not bow to any superpower, Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro said.
“We have a true homeland, because we have a country with men and women educated with the values of (independence hero Simon) Bolivar. We have a true homeland, because we have an independent republic that does not kneel in front of any empire in the world,” he said.
Nicolas Maduro was present to mark the 192nd anniversary of a historic battle for independence. The Battle of Carabobo cinched Venezuela’s victory in its struggle for independence from colonial Spain.
