Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has lashed out at his American counterpart, Donald Trump, over his recent threats to impose a blockade or a quarantine on the South American country, saying that his government is prepared for battle in the event of such a move by Washington.
Axar.az reports citing PressTV that “All of Venezuela, in a civic-military union, repudiates and rejects the statements of Donald Trump about a supposed quarantine, of a supposed blockade,” Maduro said in a state television broadcast on Friday.
“We are all prepared for battle if anyone tries to impose a quarantine or blockade on Venezuela,” said Maduro, adding that the threat only shows the “desperation and irritation” of the Trump administration.
Maduro, who has said that he would “meet even with the devil to keep the peace in Venezuela,” said earlier last month that he was certain a peace agreement will be reached until the end of the year.
