Mondino alleges 'Cuban and Venezuelan moles' are in Argentina to destabilise government

Without presenting evidence, Argentina's foreign minister claims there are "specialist and highty skilled" Cuban and Venezuelan moles active in the country that are trying to destabilise President Javier Milei's government.

Argentina's Foreign Minister Diana Mondino said Thursday that there are undercover "Cuban and Venezuelan" spies active in the country that are trying to destabilise President Javier Milei's government.

Speaking a day before President Milei is due to deliver his state-of-the-nation address to Congress, Mondino alleged during a television interview that foreign actors were trying to damage the government.

Mondino claimed that “there are Cuban and Venezuelan moles in the country who specialise in destabilising governments."

“It’s already a proven fact, some of them journalists, they are highly skilled," the official told the TN news channel.

Without presenting evidence for her claims, Mondino said that "we have proven it in different ways," alleging that some of the alleged foreign actors were journalists.

"The same thing happened in the riots from a few years ago in Chile, so they are obviously highly skilled," continued Mondino, Argentina's top diplomat.

She said the goal of the rogue agents is to “make a fuss” to “get Milei out" of office.

“They are here to make a fuss, someone’s paying them to do it or stop doing it. The reward to oust Javier must be large,” she claimed.
