  • Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Venezuela's Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza at a press conference in Moscow

Behind the attempt to overthrow Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro is the Central Intelligence Agency, the country's Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza said in Moscow on Monday.

Arreaza stated that a coup against the legitimate government had failed, while Lavrov, for his part, reaffirmed Moscow's support for the people of Venezuela and for President Nicolas Maduro, also expressing hope that Washington would abstain from using force to influence the situation in the Latin American country.

"The United States and Arctic nations welcome transparent Chinese investment that reflect economic interests, not national security ambitions", Pompeo said in a speech.

Lavrov further said Russian Federation never meddles in the domestic affairs of other states, "and we urge all others to act precisely like this", he added.

Attempts at a forced change of power in Venezuela undermine the crisis settlement process and carry a risk of catastrophe, the Russian minister warned.

The minister went on to say that Moscow and Caracas are set to strengthen their strategic cooperation.

Washington views Maduro's reelection a year ago as illegitimate and has recognized opposition leader Juan Guaido as interim president.

Moreover, a number of senior USA officials, including President Donald Trump, have repeatedly stated that all options remain on the table with regard to the Venezuelan crisis, including military action.
