Venezuela is ready to defend itself, Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza said Friday, after Washington invoked a regional defence pact that might justify such a move.
 
"We are ready to protect ourselves, we are ready to react," Arreaza told a news conference after meeting in Geneva with UN rights chief Michelle Bachelet.
 
"We will let no one trample sacred Venezuelan soil, we will respond and hope that never happens," the minister said.
