The Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro accused the United States and the right opposition led by Juan Guaido in the preparation of the attempt on his life.
In his speech on Venezuelan TV, which was broadcast live, Maduro said that American imperialism wants to destroy him and has already disclosed the details of the alleged crime.
According to him, the conspiracy was organized with the direct participation of opposition leader Juan Guaido and with the support of the leader of the Colombian mafia, who was recently arrested in Venezuela. The main goal of the Colombian mafia, recruited by the United States and the right – wing opposition is to spread chaos, violence and murder in all parts of the country.
He assured that the people and armed forces of Venezuela are able to resist the new conspiracy and win the final victory over the enemies of the country.
