Comments on Venezuela were made hastily: Subedi

Venezuela crisis has triggered waves on political spectrum of Nepal after Nepal Communist Party (NCP) Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal issued a statement accusing the US of intervening in the internal affairs of Venezuela. Prime Minister KP Oli has dubbed Dahal’s statement as a ‘slip of tongue’ in a bid to patch up Nepal-America ties upon his return from Davo Summit. Oli-Dahal relations soured after Dahal reiterated his stance terming his statement as official justifying that it was endorsed by the party’s secretariat.

Kashyap Neupane of Khabarhub talked to Arun Kumar Subedi, a political analyst and international relations expert, for his views on Venezuela crisis. Excerpts:

How do you analyze the differing views coming from the Nepal Communist Party and the government on the Venezuelan crisis?

This, in fact, can be analyzed from two dimensions. Marxists are too formal whom I prefer to call ‘doctrinal hypocrites.’ This issue is just a pretext to impress the general people. The communists, who earlier used to allege the US of being an imperialist, want to give the impression that they are still adamant to their stance.
