Venezuela’s Maduro Says He Will Not Accept More “Offenses” from U.S.

CARACAS – Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro declared that he would not accept “any further offense” on the part of the United States’ government, and urged his American counterpart Barack Obama to “impose criteria of respect” when it comes to relations with Venezuela.

At a rally Monday in the northwestern state of Yaracuy, Maduro said no one has the right to intervene in Venezuela’s internal affairs.

“Damn Yankees, respect our homeland,” the Venezuelan president said, adding that he would not accept any further offenses caused by U.S. “imperialism.”

Maduro also noted that Venezuela will not accept Washington using its Caracas embassy to maintain communications with members of the nation’s military, nor will it accept any attempts at “buying” journalists.

The Venezuelan president stated that his country’s embassy in Washington is not reaching out to U.S. military commanders looking to overthrow President Obama.

However, he reiterated that Venezuela wishes to establish the best relations with the U.S. government, based on mutual respect.

Maduro announced last week that a military coup plot to overthrow him, supported by Washington, had been aborted by the intelligence services.

According to the Venezuelan president, both politicians and military participants in this plot were being directed by the United States, adding that it is “unfortunate” that Obama would be taken in by evil and false advisers who will lead him to an impasse with Venezuela.

State Department spokesman Jen Psaki said that Maduro’s statements are “false.”

Relations between Venezuela and the United States have been tense since former Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez won the Latin American country’s presidency in 1999.

At present, that office is still in the hands of Chavez’s United Socialist Party, although now it is occupied by his successor and former vice president, Nicolas Maduro.
