The heads of the coup d’état admit their responsibility without scruples. The Trump administration, in its despair, attempts to spark an internal conflict in Venezuela.

International reactions have not been long in coming, Bolivia's Head of State, Evo Morales, in Twiiter urged Latin American governments to condemn the coup d'etat and prevent violence from taking innocent lives.
'It would be a disastrous precedent to let the coup meddling establish in the region. Peace and talks must be prevailed over the coup', Morales wrote.

.@VP Pence is fulfilling his role as head of the attempted coup d’état. In the name of God he calls for violence and death. Is this what a good Christian does? The people of Venezuela and its Bolivarian Armed Force are the guarantors of peace and respect for the Constitution— Jorge Arreaza M (@jaarreaza) 30 de abril de 2019
The Cuban Foreign Minister, Bruno Rodríguez, also assured that the Venezuelan people have full support and solidarity from Cuba in the face of the right's destabilizing attempts. "Cease the aggressions to the peace of Our America," he said.
