“During the recent days, our air force or our Bolivarian military aviation, have detected illegal entry of unusual spy plane Boeing E-3 Sentry.”

The President assures the public that no one will end the Bolivarian Revolution and any coup will not work out.

“What is a coup? Who is going to give it? Let me tell you. To see history repeated is for America and Venezuela. But our loyal armed forces are making history, too. Come then, no blackmail, do not accept blackmail.”

Meanwhile, he warns against the Venezuelan opposition force that their planned referendum to oust him has no chance to materialize.

“The truth is that they do not want referendum. They just want coup. Foreign intervention and economic war, just to name a few. And they put on a varnish, or a disguise before the world. They put on this costume, but when it drops, the macabre face of a full coup will show off.”

Nicolas Maduro is currently in the second half of his first term.

He has faced mounting pressure since January, when the opposition force dominated the National Assembly and keeps on designing his early quit from presidency.
