Venezuela might owe Donald Trump a thank-you card.

"The drop in oil prices is used as a tool of political attack", she said, accusing the USA of being behind an "economic war" to oust President Nicolas Maduro.

Delegates are likely to issue a statement condemning the Trump administration's new sanctions on several of its delegates.

On Saturday the nations of Mercosur, which includes Brazil and Argentina, issued a statement saying "the only acceptable means of promoting democracy are dialogue and diplomacy" and repudiating "violence and any option that implies the use of force".

"Today we have the National Constituent Assembly and I come to recognize their plenipotentiary powers, original and great to govern the destinies of the Republic" he said.

Venezuela's Information Minister Vladimir Villegas on Saturday tweeted a picture of the Statue of Liberty holding a machine gun instead of a torch, and a link to an article describing, "A Chronology of U.S. President Trump will gladly speak with the leader of Venezuela as soon as democracy is restored in that country", it added.

President Donald Trump's talk of a "military option" in Venezuela risks alienating Latin American nations that overcame their reluctance to work with the Republican leader and had adopted a common, confrontational approach aimed at isolating President Nicolas Maduro's embattled government.

Venezuela's leftist allies in the region were quick to seize on Mr. Trump's comments. "But now the claim has been validated", said Mark Feierstein, who served as President Barack Obama's top national security adviser on Latin America. The U.S. government accused all eight of participating "in actions or policies that undermine democratic processes or institutions in Venezuela".

The ban comes as the USA considers imposing economic sanctions against the government of President Nicolas Maduro, who is facing mounting worldwide criticism over a crackdown on opponents and moves to consolidate power.

"The reckless threats of President Donald Trump are created to draw Latin America and the Caribbean into a conflict that will irrevocably violate stability, peace and security in our region", he said.

The sanctions marked a further escalation of the US response to Maduro's establishment last week of the new constituent assembly, an all-powerful body run by his Socialist Party loyalists and which has drawn worldwide condemnation. "And since they are empty threats, Maduro faces no new consequences by taking a tough stand, both rhetorically and against the opposition". Also this week, ruling party hard-liner Diosdado Cabello announced that a Venezuelan employee of the U.S. Embassy in Caracas had been detained for asking questions about Cabello's whereabouts.

She also said that, for representing the highest post of the homeland, "all unilateral sanctions against President Maduro, are an offense to the people of Venezuela".
