CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro is blaming an alleged plot against him for his cancellation of a visit to New York to speak to the U.N. General Assembly.
Maduro said in a broadcast televised nationally Wednesday from an automobile plant that he would not reveal details of the plot so as not to compromise his information source.
He said he found it difficult to believe that U.S. President Barack Obama was not aware of the alleged plot.
Maduro blamed two former U.S. officials who he frequently cites as being behind alleged attempts to destroy his government: Roger Noriega and Otto Reich.
Faced with mounting shortages of food, medicine and toilet paper ahead of Dec. 8 regional elections, Maduro's government announced on Wednesday measures designed to remove red tape for imports.
