Any attempt of US imperialist aggression will be given a firm response by the patriots determined to courageously defend their homeland, Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro wrote on Twitter on Saturday, ONA reports quoting TASS.
"The empire of the United States has once more underestimated the awareness and resolve of the people of Venezuela. I assure you that any attempt of the imperialist aggression will receive a firm response from patriots - men and women - who love and bravely defend our homeland," Maduro tweeted.
Earlier, Venezuelan Defense Minister Vladimir Padrino Lopez lambasted the attack on the country’s power grid as an act of aggression. Later, Communications and Information Minister Jorge Rodriguez explained that Lopez meant a cyberattack allegedly committed from the US.
