Estimados camaradas:

El Comité de Solidaridad Internacional (COSI), organismo venezolano afiliado al Consejo Mundial de la Paz, desde el año 1972, ante la “Orden Ejecutiva” firmada por el presidente Barack Obama el pasado 9 de marzo, en la que injustamente se declaró a Venezuela como “una amenaza inusual y extraordinaria a la seguridad y política exterior de Estados Unidos”, manifiesta su preocupación por esta agresiva y peligrosa arremetida del imperialismo norteamericano en el marco de su polifacética ofensiva contra nuestro país.
