August 30, 2019 at 04:26 GMT +00:00 · Published

President of the National Constituent Assembly (ANC) Diosdado Cabello warned the United States about intervening in Venezuela while delivering a speech at the inauguration of the International Meeting of Workers in solidarity with the Bolivarian revolution on Thursday in Caracas.

"If the United States dares to set foot in Venezuela, it will not have a single drop of Venezuelan oil for centuries, not a single drop of oil will be taken from Venezuela. Or are oil workers going to allow it? Impossible. And the people less. They could not work one day," said Cabello during his speech after he said that presidential elections are not planned in the country as they have a sitting President, Nicolas Maduro.

The statement comes after US Special Representative for Venezuela Elliott Abrams said the US was willing to strike a deal to avoid prosecution of current Venezuelan president Nicolas Maduro if he would voluntarily resign.
