Remarks by his Excellency Bernardo Alvarez Herrera, Ambassador of Venezuela to the United States.
Bernardo Álvarez Herrera, who represents Venezuela and Hugo Chávez in Washington, says his country's break from the U.S.-endorsed model of economic policy in Latin America is giving the region hope that democracies can enact "revolutionary change." He faults the United States for upholding a "double standard" on terrorism and not minding its energy consumption.
