On Sunday, US President Donald Trump stated that the use of the US military in the Venezuelan crisis was among the possible variants.

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has warned that he was going to make the US intervention irreparable for the enemy in case Washington decides to take military action in Venezuela.

“We are planning to respond to a US intervention in such a way as to make [the United States] suffer irreparable military and human losses,” Maduro told the RT broadcaster in an interview on Tuesday.

Maduro’s comments come after late last week US President Donald Trump confirmed in an interview with the CBS broadcaster that he was considering the use of military force in the Venezuelan crisis. Responding to Trump’s statement, Maduro pledged that Venezuela’s military would do its best to prevent a possible foreign invasion of its territory.

On US Sanctions and PDVSA

Addressing the issue of US sanctions against Venezuela’s PDVSA oil company, he condemned them, calling the move “illegal compensation.”

This comes after last week the United States blocked all of PDVSA’s assets in its jurisdiction and imposed a ban on making deals with the company.

US Treasury Department said in a statement that Washington would keep using its “economic tools” to back Juan Guaido, who has declared himself interim president of Venezuela.
