Written by thereachfm on February 26, 2019
Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro in an interview broadcast yesterday accused the American government of manufacturing a crisis in an attempt to start a war in South America.
Maduro, in an interview, told American media from the presidential palace in Caracas in remarks translated by the network from Spanish that everything the United States government has done has been doomed to failure.
Maduro alleged that they are trying to fabricate a crisis to justify political escalation and a military intervention in Venezuela to bring a war to South America.
Earlier in the day, US Vice President Mike Pence announced $56 million in aid to Venezuelans as well as tougher US sanctions as he joined a Lima Group meeting of Latin American countries plus Canada that was also attended by opposition leader Juan Guaido.
The United States is among some 50 countries that recognize Guaido as Venezuela’s interim president.
