Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro said that control over the situation in the country, including the armed forces, is completely in the hands of the authorities. The Venezuelan leader called the attempt of the opposition in the person of Juan Guaido “three months of clownery of North American imperialism”.
Maduro stressed on the broadcast of the state television that he, as a constitutional President, manages international relations and leads the state agenda. The head of the Bolivarian Republic noted that the government intends to continue to govern the country with “the Constitution in hand, in peace, democratically, together with the people”. He also did not rule out the possibility of filing claims against opposition mayors for non-participation in the program “Mission – Beautiful Venezuela”.
On April 7, more than five million supporters of the incumbent President took part in the “anti-imperialist March” in Venezuela.
