Actualité - Chavez: US Slow Fuse for Venezuela

Caracas, Jun 19 (Prensa Latina) Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez announced that the intelligence services have evidence on the existence of a US-orchestrated plan aimed at destabilizing the country, and called it a "slow fuse."

In a phone call to "Venezolana de Television," Chavez pointed out the intention is to pave the way for a large-scale conflict, and allow for international condemnations.

"They have tried to attract some military sectors but, fortunately, the Armed Force is well consolidated," he said.

The president indicated that an extreme rightwing ploy orchestrated by the US, to try to weaken the country and overthrow him, lays behind the recent student protests.

US contacts with students are unlikely to be direct, but evidence corroborates there is a covert strategy to incite violence, Chavez commented.

It is not a new ploy, but a change of strategy, stated the president.
