Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro revealed that an attempt to assassinate him was prepared on the day of the parliamentary elections that his country witnessed on December 6.

Iran PressAmerica: Maduro added in a press conference on Tuesday that "I changed the polling station because the information related to my assassination came from a reliable source in the Colombian intelligence," accusing the president of Colombia of being behind such an attempt.

The Venezuelan president continued, "from the official residence of the President of Colombia in Casa de Narino, Ivan Duque participated in the planning of my assassination on election day. This is correct, and appropriate precautions have been taken."

He repeatedly accused the United States and Colombia of organizing his assassination attempts and affirmed that several attempts were thwarted in Bogota.
