'I think there's a lot of distortion. There is a real psychological war operation against Venezuela,' assured the Venezuelan minister in an interview to the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) in Paris, France, in which he put the manipulation of the media silence around the scandal in the elections of March 11 in Colombia -in which photocopies of the voting ballots was allowed and purchase of the votes was denounced-.
Some other evidence of psychological warfare was expressed in the media in Spain, where more than 3,800 negative notes on Venezuela were published in 2017, the official said, quoted on national television.
The minister stressed that false matrixes about the South American nation are destroyed when people from other nations visit Venezuelan territory and see a completely different reality from the one shown by some media.
Rodríguez stressed that there is full freedom of expression in the country and there is a climate of tranquility and peace, achieved after the election and installation of the National Constituent Assembly, in July 2017.
