Good evening Mrs. Candith Mashego-Dlamini, Deputy Minister of Rural Development, Mr. Godfrey Oliphant, Deputy Minister of Mineral Resources, fellow Ambassadors, High Commissioners and members of the Diplomatic Corps, Members of the Department of International Relations and Cooperation, Comrades, friends, Venezuelan compatriots, special guests.
                                                                                                                                      
I will not give a long speech, don't worry. I just want to thank you for your presence here, to the South African Government thank you for the good relations that we have had so far and which have gradually increased.

This year, we celebrate 204 years of the Declaration of independence of Venezuela, this year also marks 200 years of the Jamaican letter, a historical document written by our liberator Simon Bolivar on September 6, 1815 in Kingston Jamaica, where the Liberator captured a guide to freedom and prosperity for our peoples, as Commander Chávez mentioned 10 years ago in Montego Bay Jamaica.

In this letter of historical significance, the Liberator reflects on the struggle for independence in a regional context, in its emancipatory perspective. Bolívar described it as the great idea of trying to form a single nation, a single origin, language, customs and religion throughout the new world.

The Validity of Bolivar’s reflection is also seen when he says: "that the veil was torn and we have seen the light but they want us to return to the darkness: we have broken the chains; we have already been free and our enemies seek to enslave us again".

ratification of our consciousness and of anti-imperialist thought as well as our full determination to defend under all circumstances the popular sovereignty of all Venezuelans, coupled with the continuation of our foreign policy of solidarity  which  we have named Bolivarian diplomacy of peace as it seeks to pursue the integration and the union of all the countries of the region, as well as with our brothers in Africa.

Two hundred four years have passed and the commitment to maintaining a free, sovereign and independent Venezuela rumbles with greater force in the present, in spite of the  political, economic, psychological and media war, driven by imperial interests against our country. Because we have a conscious people, we have been able to overcome these attacks with dignity, courage and bravery. Our task is to create the conditions that will make it possible to continue to build our destiny in peace, sovereignty, independence, equality and social justice.

Thank you very much
Please, join me in proposing a toast to honour our independence and relation between Venezuela and South Africa.
