On the issue of the U.S. declaring Venezuela a “security threat”, Fernandez echoed the regional sentiment and said, “I confess to you all that when I heard the news I thought that there had to be a mistake … and then the first thing I did was laugh .. its ridiculous .. that not just Venezuela but any country on our continent could be some kind of threat to the huge power that is the U.S.”
