Latin American presidents should serve their people, not US interests – Bolivia's Evo Morales to RT — RT World News

‘There are some serious problems in Latin America. In Argentina, Brazil and Ecuador, the presidents, who used to be the guarantors of the sovereignty and dignity of the people, are now being subjected to political persecution,’ Morales said.

He was referring to Argentina's Cristina de Kirchner, Brazil's Dilma Rousseff and to Rafael Correa of Ecuador, who lost power in their countries in recent years and are now facing various charges, pushed forward by new, US-backed governments.

Washington's ‘extensive political campaign’ in Latina America is headed by US Vice President Mike Pence, the Bolivian leader said, in the run-up to his address at the UN General Assembly in New York on Wednesday.

‘There are no military coups taking place in Latin America anymore as coups are now happening through congresses and courts. It's yet another mechanism used by the US to deal with presidents fighting against imperialism.’

If those measures prove ineffective, the US resorts to ‘making plots and carrying out provocations,’ Morales said. And when that fails as well, there's talk of military intervention, like it has been talked about regarding Venezuela.”
