Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro repudiated U.S. leader Donald Trump's threats relating to the naval bockade and applied to the United Nations (UN) with the application for illegal dangers, as Reuters informed.
"Donald Trump says he thinks to make quarantine against Venezuela is that to not let any Venezuelan ship come in ot out. This is the blockade. I asked Venezuela’s ambassador to the United Nations, Samuel Moncada, to denounce the “illegal” threat to the U.N. Security Council," Maduro said.
The state leader emphasized that the seas of Venezuela will be free anyway, and ships will be floating under the direction of his country, but not the Donald Trump's. In case if the U.S. disagrees Maduro warned Washington to be prepared for the fight.
"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. "A blockade, why would he announce that? It is clearly illegal."
