The large-scale military exercise, which is being held in the country's 200-year history, will continue until Feb. 15, Anadolu Agency reports.

"We must prepare to defend [Venezuela's] sovereignty, territorial integrity and independence," said Mauro, during his speech to soldiers at the Guaicaipuro Military Base in Miranda, central northern and coaster state of Venezuela.

"Here are armed forces and here are the people to defend the honor, dignity and decorum of a country that has over 200 years of fighting for its future."

He also voiced against U.S. President Donald Trump who aggressively backed Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido and called for a regime change.

"Get out Donald Trump, get out his threats!," Maduro said.
