In this context, he has defended that "Spain has to make a great historical rectification for the crimes committed by the Spanish empire and has to ask from the soul of Spain good forgiveness to the peoples of Latin America and the Caribbean."

Also the Venezuelan President has highlighted this Tuesday the celebration of the day of indigenous resistance in the Caribbean country as a "shout of rebellion" before the Spanish "invasion".

"It's been 529 years since the cry of rebellion of our original peoples, who resisted and battled to defend these lands from the Spanish invasion," has moved the Venezuelan president through another message published on his Twitter account, where he has remarked that "Today the Bolivarian revolution vindicates its struggles."
