Sharjah 24 – AFP: U.S. President Donald Trump's "reckless threat" of possible military force against Venezuela has the goal of bringing conflict to Latin America, the South American country's foreign minister said on Saturday.
"The reckless threat by President Donald Trump aims to drag Latin America and the Caribbean into a conflict that would permanently alter stability, peace and security in our region," Jorge Arreaza told a news conference, reading a statement in President Nicolas Maduro's name.

U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday threatened military intervention in Venezuela, a surprise escalation of Washington's response to Venezuela's political crisis that Caracas disparaged as "craziness."
