“The Government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela denounces once again the attempts by the supremacist elite that controls the White House to promote a coup in Venezuela, attacking the Constitution, Democracy and Peace in the country,” the ministry said in a statement.

The Bolivarian state denounced the conspiracy lead by U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton and his attempts to forcefully impose a puppet government- like in 2002- which caters to US transnational corporations and rejects both the Constitution and the popular will.

“While the Constitutional President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro, urges dialogue with respect between countries, Bolton, in turn, embraces the script of the coup-driven adventures, historically inserted in the imperialist agenda,” the statement said.

The greatest threat to the security of Venezuelans is the criminal blockade imposed by the United States, the letter said, calling for an end of all “economic and diplomatic aggression.”

Maduro who was officially inaugurated on Thursday for the second time, denounced the U.S. interventionist attitudes, saying “the imperial attack against Venezuela is part of a regional dispute that promotes imperialism for the reconquest of what they see as their backyard.”

In its statement, the Foreign Ministry assured that, “No matter how powerful the pressures, threats, and attacks, the Bolivarian Government will never give in to the integral defense of the sovereignty of the Venezuelan people.

“Venezuela will use all its political, moral and constitutional power to defeat imperialist aggression in all its forms,” the letter said.
