Venezuela military vows ‘unrestricted’ loyalty to Maduro

Venezuela’s powerful armed forces say they are on “alert” for any border violations following threats by US President Donald Trump that they could “lose everything” if they don’t switch sides and back opposition leader Juan Guaido.

Defense Minister Vladimir Padrino reiterates the military’s “unrestricted obedience, subordination and loyalty” to embattled President Nicolas Maduro, whose authority has been challenged by self-declared acting president Guaido.
