After the European Union and many countries of the world recognize the leader of the Venezuelan opposition، Juan Guido، as interim president of the country، Maduro "the legitimate president of Venezuela" speaks of the failed coup attempt to oust him.
Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro on Wednesday declared the end of the coup attempt against his government، attacking EU countries on what he called their "blind pursuit" of US President Donald Trump's policies in backing his opponents.
"The leader of the Venezuelan opposition، Juan Guido، was hoping for a military coup، but he failed to get the support of the army،" Maduro said in an interview with Euro News.
"It was crazy، they wanted a military coup، but they failed... They were playing that card، but it was over،" he added.
“I believe that Federica Mujerini and the EU governments made a big mistake. They have listened to only one side and have not listened to the whole country، which wants dialogue، understanding and respect.”
"They did not listen to us even though we represent the voice of real power،" he said. "I think Europe blindly associates itself with Donald Trump's bad policies."
