Nicolas Maduro spoke out on the ongoing situation, hours after the provocative video was published, saying that he has spoken with military leaders and that they have shown "their total loyalty".
"Nerves of steel. I spoke to the commanders of all Integral Strategic Defense Regions (REDI) and Integral Defense Operations Zones (ZODI), who declared their complete loyalty to the people, the constitution and homeland. I call for maximum popular mobilization to confirm the victory of the peace. We will win," Maduro wrote on Twitter.
¡Nervios de Acero! He conversado con los Comandantes de todas las REDI y ZODI del País, quienes me han manifestado su total lealtad al Pueblo, a la Constitución y a la Patria. Llamo a la máxima movilización popular para asegurar la victoria de la Paz. ¡Venceremos!— Nicolás Maduro (@NicolasMaduro) 30 апреля 2019 г.
As if revoicing Maduro's statement, the country's Defence Minister Vladimir Padrino Lopez said that the Venezuelan Armed Forces were loyal to the constitution.
Earlier in the day, Venezuelan Minister of Defence Vladimir Padrino Lopez said that the country's military fully supported "the constitution and legitimate authorities."
Guaido proclaimed himself interim-president of the country earlier this year, immediately receiving support from the US and a number of other western states. At the same time, many other countries, including Russia, China and Turkey have supported constitutionally elected President Nicolas Maduro.
Venezuelan authorities launched an investigation into Guaido's actions early in April, stripping his parliamentary immunity. He has been accused of committing treason with some of his allies also being scrutinised.
