Maduro says he will send a letter to the King of Spain asking for forgiveness for the “genocide” in America


The president of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro, announced that it will send a letter to King Felipe VI to expose “with respect” that colonialism led to “the greatest genocide in history” of humanity, with the hope that Spain can “rectify” and ask for forgiveness.

“Every time Spain goes out to celebrate and dance on October 12 it offends historical memory”, has exposed Mature during a public act in which he has vindicated the American Indian past. In this sense, he has regretted that Spain has not chosen another “glorious day” to commemorate his national day, when “It could have chosen any date in its long history.”

The Venezuelan president considers that it is time for Spain assume that “it was 300 years of colonialism and crimes against humanity”, and hopes that the king, “a man of the 21st century”, reflects and “apologizes” as Pope Francis has done.

Previously, in a series of messages published on Twitter, he had attacked “the Spanish empire” that “more than 500 years ago, murdered, exiled and enslaved millions of inhabitants of indigenous peoples”, stressing that “Spain must rectify and ask sorry to all America ”.

Maduro will raise it with a letter to the King that he hopes to make known “in the next few hours,” as the president of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, did previously, who also addressed the Spanish monarch with a letter. He will write “with respect, always with respect,” he added.

Likewise, it will send a second letter to the presidency of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) to propose the creation of a “truth commission” to investigate the colonial era.
