The only official of the federal government that ruled was the ambassador of Mexico in the United States, Martha Bárcena, who just tweeted: “Listening to President-elect: Joe Biden who said that the scenes that have been in the Capitol not represent EU “.

For example, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson called the scenes of violence on Capitol Hill shameful. 

Shameful scenes in the United States Congress. The United States defends democracy around the world and it is now vital that there be a peaceful and orderly transfer of power,” he wrote on the social network.

The Canadian government said it was “deeply shocked” by the assault on Congress by supporters of President Donald Trump, a fact that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called an “attack on democracy in the United States .”

Canadians are gravely concerned and saddened by the attack on democracy in the United States, our closest ally and neighbor. Violence will never succeed in overriding the will of the people,” Trudeau noted on Twitter.

For his part, the Prime Minister of Italy, Giuseppe Conte, published: “I am following with great concern what is happening in Washington. Violence is incompatible with the exercise of political rights and democratic freedoms. I trust in the solidity and strength of the institutions of the United States “.

The president of Chile, Sebastián Piñera, also condemned the assault on the US Capitol and expressed his confidence in the “solidity” of that country’s democracy.

“Chile rejects actions aimed at altering the democratic process in the United States and condemns violence and undue interference with constitutional institutions,” the conservative president published on his Twitter account.

For his part, the President of the Government of Spain, Pedro Sánchez, showed his “concern” about the assault on the US Capitol that has been carried out by followers of Donald Trump.

I follow with concern the news that comes from the Capitol in Washington. I am confident in the strength of democracy in the United States,” Sánchez said in a message on social networks.

The Prime Minister of Portugal, António Costa, was concerned about the violent assault on the US Capitol by supporters of Donald Trump and asked that the result of the elections be respected with a “peaceful” transition.

I accompany the events in Washington with concern. They are disturbing images. The result of the elections must be respected, with a peaceful and orderly transition of power,” Costa wrote in a message on his Twitter profile.

The Government of Costa Rica said Wednesday that closely follows developments in the Capitol of the United States and condemned any act of violence against the democratic system.

“Costa Rica reiterates its condemnation of any act of violence that interferes with the healthy development of the democratic system,” the Costa Rican Foreign Ministry said in a brief press release.

President of Colombia, Ivan Duque, on Wednesday, rejected “acts of violence ” featuring in the Capitol of the United States by supporters of the outgoing president, Donald Trump, during the session that should corroborate the election victory of Democrat Joe Biden.

I express my solidarity and support for the honorable members of Congress and all institutions,” Duque added, in a rejection message on his Twitter account.

Mark Rutte, Prime Minister of the Netherlands, asked Trump to recognize Biden’s victory. 

For its part, Venezuela criticized the polarization in the United States and assured that there is a crisis in the political and social system in the United States. 

“Venezuela condemns the political polarization and the spiral of violence that only reflects the profound crisis that the political and social system of the United States is currently experiencing,” he said in a statement.

To the Organization of American States (OAS) he condemned and repudiated the acts of violence recorded in the Capitol of the United States .

“The OAS General Secretariat condemns and repudiates the attacks against institutions that are being carried out today in the United States by protesters who are unaware of the recent electoral results. Democracy has its fundamental pillar in the independence of the Powers of the State, which must act totally free of pressure, “he published in a statement. 

The OAS pointed out that the use of force and vandalism against institutions is a serious attack on democratic functioning.

After the acts of violence in the Capitol, a curfew was declared in Washington from 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday to 6:00 a.m. on Thursday, and whoever does not respect it will be arrested.
