Caracas, Jun 22 (EFE) .- The Venezuelan president, Nicolás Maduro, started on Tuesday the commemorations of the bicentennial of the Battle of Carabobo, which took place on June 24, 1821 and was key in the War of Independence.

“Today, I start the commemoration days of the 200 years of the victory of the campaign and the Battle of Carabobo, the 200 years of the consolidation of the birth of Colombia la Grande, of the independence of the Venezuelan soil,” said the President in a ceremony held on the same ground where the battle took place almost two centuries ago.

There he inaugurated a work built for the anniversary and that, he explained, is inspired by the sword of the liberator Simón Bolívar, so it “represents the bases of powerful beams that were planted” to “build the republican building.”

“I come to inaugurate, today, June 22, this marvelous monument, fixed in a straight line to the altar of the country and that comes, in a majestic way in a very 21st century art, to signify the construction, the powerful beams with which we are building the Republic”.

For the Venezuelan ruler, it is “a wonderful work of artists” from his country, for which he proposed to “nominate it for international and world awards.”

“It is a magnificent work that largely represents that art that can represent the bases of powerful beams that were planted here,” he said.

In this regard, he added that, “in a manner”, it is also “a gift to the people of Venezuela.”

In his speech, Maduro made a journey through the war and Bolívar’s actions and drew parallels between his political vision and that of his predecessor in the Venezuelan Presidency, Hugo Chávez.
