“If your Chargé d’Affaires in Bolivia wants to reject your intervention plan, you must first deny the head of the US Southern Command, Laura J. Richardson, who revealed her plan on March 8 before the House Armed Services Committee (sic),” Morales wrote on Twitter.
The former president also questioned the charge d’affaires’ remarks, noting that “world peace and prosperity depend on a world order,” while Richardson spoke of the “lithium triangle.” “Who is lying?” he asked.
I want the Bolivian people to know that this supposed denial conceals the reaction of the empire against those who defend the sovereignty of the Bolivian people over their natural resources. We have no fear. Morales added: “We will always fight with the truth and with dignity.”
Bolivia, Chile and Argentina have the largest reserves of lithium in the world. //agc
