Embattled Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro railed against the U.S. while claiming America is the most serious threat to world peace.

The South American leader, who stands accused of war crimes, made the remarks while addressing the United Nations Wednesday. He denigrated the U.S. by claiming Washington has committed criminal and inhuman acts of aggression toward his regime.

Maduro also attacked dozens of other countries in his speech, all of which do not recognize him as the legitimate leader of Venezuela. Instead, the nations acknowledge his opponent Interim President Juan Guaido who responded to Maduro’s heated remarks by demanding he step down.

“Today, I call on all representatives of UN member states to assume responsibility in assisting the legitimate government of Venezuela in its mission to protect the people of Venezuela, to save Venezuela and to consider a strategy,” stated the opposition leader. “After all the steps taken, the time has come for timely and decisive action.”

Meanwhile, Maduro also called on other countries to oppose U.S. sanctions on his dwindling list of allies, which includes Syria, Cuba and Iran.
