Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro feels that his US counterpart Barack Obama has made "a serious mistake" for his failure to acknowledge the results of the Venezuelan presidential election.

"I think that they are making a serious mistake, another one in their Latin American policy. I think that they (Maduro's dissenters) convinced Obama of their adventure intended to disregard the election and promised him that I would be toppled (...)

The Venezuelan president added that the Venezuelan opposition managed a violent agenda involving "two or three generals who were detained" and street riots.
