Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has accused the United States of trying to orchestrate a soft coup in his country.

Chavez said the US has been triggering soft coups in various countries by provoking people and with the help of media and organizations, under the pretext of protecting human rights, Chavez said at a news conference in Ayacucho Hall of Miraflores presidential palace on Wednesday.

They are trying to do the same in Venezuela, he added.

He stated, however, that what the US leaders have overlooked is the fact that Venezuelan people fervently support the tenets of democracy in their country.

The outspoken president predicted that his people would frustrate the enemy plots thanks to their awareness.

“Sirs, forget about your plan here in Venezuela. What could eventually happen is a revolutionary outburst. We do not want it to happen. However, in that case, I would be at the forefront. If this ever happens -and I will make a great effort for this not to occur- the government would join the people and lead the revolutionary outburst. Therefore, you would rather stop it.”

Referring to the Americans’ egotism and expansionism, Chavez criticized them for exerting control over 20 percent of the globe’s energy reservoirs, despite housing only five percent of the world’s population .

However, people in many countries are living in pain and misery, he regretted.
