In response, the White House said Mr Trump would gladly speak to his Venezuelan counterpart, when democracy had been restored in the country. You know we're all over the world, and we have troops all over the world, some that are very, very far away.

Maduro asked the Venezuelan Foreign Minister to contact the USA authorities to arrange a telephone conversation or a meeting with President Trump, informs France 24.

Peru said on Friday it was expelling Venezuela's ambassador to Peru to protest the country's recent formation of an all-powerful constituent assembly that has been widely condemned as a power grab by socialist President Nicolas Maduro.

Maduro and his government have faced growing opposition from the USA and major Latin American nations over the controversial legislative superbody, which sparked months of deadly protests across the country.

The 6 August incident raised tensions in the divided country, where critics of President Maduro say he is trying to cement a dictatorship. Normally, such a declaration by a United States president would spark extended debate and command the world's full attention.

Late last month, despite nationwide strikes and demonstrations, Maduro pushed through a vote on a new constituent assembly that replaced the opposition-majority parliament and increased his power.
