Venezuela ready to repel foreign attack

Venezuela's Deputy Foreign Minister Ruben Dario Molina said the Venezuelans are determined to defend their country against any possible foreign attack.

He told Iranian Tasnim news agency on Saturday in an interview during his visit to Iran that armed forces are also loyal to President Nicolas Maduro. The Venezuelan official urged the international community to respect Venezuela's independence and sovereignty in the face of US provocative measures.

Molina denounced the US sanctions against Venezuela, saying these sanctions do not allow the country to properly proceed with its accurate plans to provide food for its people. He stressed that all Venezuela's problems could be resolved via dialogue.
