US trying to create illegal armed groups in Venezuela, says vice president

MOSCOW, March 1. /TASS/. The US is making efforts to create illegal armed groups in Venezuela, Venezuelan Executive Vice President Delcy Rodriguez said on Friday at a news conference on results of the negotiations with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.

"The US has certain plans and steps directed at creating illegal armed groups in Venezuela," she said. "The US is traditionally creating terrorist groups; it’s no secret that they are doing so. The Americans are supporting illegal extremist groups in different countries to destabilize the world."

The vice president stressed that this scenario will not work out in Venezuela. "Today our army and nation are strong-knit like never before to protect the sovereignty, territorial integrity and the right for the future of our country," she pointed out.
