President Nicolás Maduro asked the population to be prepared to defend and guarantee the peace of the country in any circumstance.
The president of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, called on Thursday to the national union to defend the peace and independence of the country against possible attacks by governments in the region.
During the Bolivarian Congress of Peoples held in the “Poliedro de Caracas” (capital), the president urged the “national union to defend peace and independence, defend the right to life, to the happiness of the people.”
In addition, he warned that if at some point serious events occur in Venezuela and he is kidnapped, “from now on I say people unite and go to the streets, regain power and make a more radical Revolution, it is an order to the people.” He asked the Venezuelan people and the Bolivarian National Armed Forces (FANB) to “be prepared for everything, to defend and guarantee the country’s peace in any circumstance,” and added that more than 80 percent of Venezuelans repudiate any foreign intervention.
Rejection of interference
The Head of State reiterated that they do not want President Iván Duque getting involved in the affairs of Venezuela.” [Duque] can not govern Colombia and wants to govern Venezuela.”
“They are with the foreign plan against Venezuela or they are with the Bolivarian Government that I preside, every one has to choose their side. You are with the country or with the war empire,” the president said.
He also said that the Brazilian vice president-elect, Hamilton Mourao, said that in Venezuela there will be a coup d’état and, subsequently, his government will send an army to prevail in that nation.
“Here I am waiting for you with several million men and women, and with a FANB ready to defend the Constitution, independence and the Revolution, Mourao I am waiting for you here,” he said.
