- Bolivia: Acting President Áñez appoints an emergency cabinet and points out that Morales cannot stand for election
- Political crisis Bolivia asks Juan Guaidó to name ambassador to La Paz
The new Bolivia on the one hand and the Cuba-Venezuela tandem, on the other . The provisional administration of Jeanine Áñez has advanced today that they will grant a term in the next two to three days to the Venezuelan diplomatic delegation to leave the Andean country , while they are speeding their withdrawal from the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America ( ALBA), created by Hugo Chávez and Fidel Castro, and of the South American Union of Nations (Unasur), a diplomatic corpse that barely "breathes" in recent times.
A precipitous departure from Bolivarian organizations that happens when the new government also prepares a formal complaint against Caracas over the alleged participation of four Venezuelans in the violent protests of recent days.
The diplomatic rifirrafe with the Bolivarian revolution happens a few hours after the government of Miguel Díaz-Canel has demanded from the new authorities of Bolivia the immediate release of the four Cubans detained in El Alto , a municipality near the capital. The four, who are part of the medical brigades in the Andean country, carried two backpacks with 90,000 Bolivians (11,700), who from Havana said they had just extracted from a bank to pay basic services and rentals of the 107 members of the 107 Medical Brigade They work in El Alto, the second city in the country.
Instead, the police forces suspected at first that with that money they intended to pay violent protesters in favor of Evo Morales in El Alto , one of the great strongholds of the indigenous revolution. Arturo Murillo, Minister of State (Interior), assured CNN that in his first declarations the Cubans assured that his goal was to rebate social movements in the area.
Cuba demands that " the physical integrity of each of its cooperators be guaranteed in accordance with the responsibilities acquired by the Bolivian state ." It also ensures that the Police verified at the headquarters of the medical brigade that this figure, 90,000 Bolivians, is the one used every month to pay the expenses of the delegation. "The Ministry of Foreign Affairs calls on the Bolivian authorities to stop the exacerbation of irresponsible anti-Cuban and hateful expressions , defamations and instigations to violence against Cuban cooperators, who have given their solidarity contribution to the health of that Bolivian brother town," Havana added in a statement.
The Bolivian Foreign Ministry said that after a "long conversation" with Havana, the Diaz-Canel government has decided to withdraw the 725 Caribbean officials stationed in the Andean country, mostly doctors . It would be the second massive abandonment after the one in Brazil after Jair Bolsonaro took office. The departure process has already begun, with a term that extends until Wednesday of next week.
The first encounters of the Bolivian provisional government with the great allies of Evo Morales have not been long in coming. The mutual recognition between Juan Guaidó and Jeanine Áñez advanced the fight with Caracas, which will increase in the next few hours after announcing from La Paz that four other Venezuelans are among those arrested for the protests. According to Minister Murillo, they were intercepted with Venezuelan police uniforms . "We are not going to allow sedition to be made in this country, it does not seem right to destabilize countries with terror," added the new head of Interior.
It is not the only "international" arrests. Police have confirmed that Argentine Facundo Morales, in a coma after participating in riots and confronting agents, has several arrest warrants in other countries . Police commanders relate the injured to the Colombian FARC.
