Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro said Monday that the title of the Blues World Cup was actually a victory of the African continent.
“The French team looked like the African team, France won thanks to African players,” said the head of state.
The Venezuelan president has also called on France and all Europe to put an end to racist acts and discrimination against African and Latin American migrants.
“Stop racism in Europe against the African people, stop discrimination against migrants. I hope that France and Europe realize that we, the South, Africans, Latin Americans, we also have the value and power, “he also said.
He also wished to recall the role played by Africans on the liberation of Europe during the Second World War.
“And this is not the first time that Africans have come to the aid of France. They were the ones who liberated France in the grip of Hitler during World War II, “he added.
