Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qasemi on Sunday condemned the US President Donald Trump provocative and meddling remarks on Venezuela's internal politics, IRNA reported.
This time it's Trump's sudden declaration that he would not rule out a "military option" in Venezuela, where President Nicolas Maduro has been consolidating power.
Mora stressed that the saying, "threats are often ineffective, and idle threats always are", applies in this case, because "unless the Maduro government took more drastic action against USA interests, President Trump would have an impossible task in rallying support on Capitol Hill or among the American public for any substantial military move in Venezuela", and the worldwide community would be even less cooperative.
"The daring threats of President Donald Trump intend to drag Latin America and the Caribbean into a conflict that would permanently alter the stability, peace and security of our region", Arreaza said at a press conference.
The military, current and retired members of which control a third of the government, leapt on the threat to say it was the nation's only bulwark against the "imperialist aggression".
We want to express gratitude for all the expressions of solidarity and rejection of the use of force from governments around the world, including Latin America.
Peru, one of Maduro's fiercest critics, led the charge in criticising Trump's threat, saying it was against United Nations principles.
Nicolas Maduro Guerra said Trump should solve his own problems and promised that - should the U.S. attack Venezuela - the Vietnam War "would seem small in comparison".
The statement added that since the start of his administration, Trump had asked that Maduro respect Venezuela's constitution.
Regional alliance Mercosur added it rejected the use of force against Venezuela, despite having indefinitely suspended the country last week amid worldwide condemnation of Maduro's new, all-powerful legislative superbody.
President Maduro's son responded to Trump on Saturday, but appeared confused on the location of the White House.
Experts on the region said the president's comments will undoubtedly make Mike Pence's task more hard when he arrives Sunday in Cartagena, Colombia.
"Colombia, Argentina, Chile and Panama, they represent the future - the future of freedom, prosperity", this official said.
Trump said a military option was "certainly something that we could pursue".
"So, I dont think he has enough political clout to exert any kind of influence in Latin America".
Brazilian Foreign Minister Aloysio Nunes announced that Brazil does not support military intervention in Venezuela.
