CARACAS, July 25 (Xinhua) — The U.S. decision to close the Chinese Consulate General in Houston is a “baseless aggression,” Venezuelan Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza said on social media Saturday to voice his support for China.

“Crafting lies to attack China is part of (U.S. President Donald) Trump’s electoral despair,” Arreaza said.
