Venezuela's foreign minister said Mr Trump's words had been hostile and disrespectful and risked destablising Latin America.

The venezuelan government has accused Saturday the american president Donald Trump want to put in danger the stability of Latin America with its "threat" reckless "military option" in the face of the crisis that has engulfed the country.

According to the BBC, during a three-hour address to his new all-powerful constitutional assembly Thursday, Maduro instructed Venezuela's foreign minister to arrange a meeting or phone call with Trump during next month's United Nations General Assembly. This is our neighbor ... we're all over the world, and we have troops all over the world in places that are very, very far away.

"Sanctions will worsen the situation of the people of Venezuela, who are already suffering from crippling inflation and a lack of access to adequate food and medicine".

Protests have rocked the streets of Caracas and other Venezuelan cities in response to Maduro's move.

Trump's comments on Venezuela come amid rising tensions over US relations with North Korea, which has threatened a missile launch toward the USA territory of Guam over what it perceives as Trump's aggressive posturing.

A week ago, Trump's top national security adviser H. R. McMaster said in a TV show that he did not see a military intervention from any outside source as likely. "Here I am", he reportedly said during a speech at the constituent assembly, a new body that was elected amid worldwide condemnation and allegations of electoral fraud late last month. "We reject the cowardly, insolent and vile threats" of Trump against "the sacred sovereignty of Venezuela", Delcy Rodriguez, president of the assembly, wrote on Twitter.
