LA PAZ, Feb. 22 (Xinhua) -- Bolivian President Evo Morales warned Friday that any intervention in Venezuela "will only bring war."

"We expect deep reflection for life and humanity; any type of intervention will only bring war. There will not be peace without social justice and without respect to the sovereignty of the people," Morales wrote on his Twitter account.

In another message on Twitter, Morales warned that the humanitarian aid from the U.S. to Venezuela is a "Trojan horse" as a means to invade and provoke a war.

"Our Latin American brothers cannot be complicit to a military intervention. Defending Venezuela is defending the sovereignty of Latin America," the president wrote on the social media.

The United States and other countries in the region, in coordination with the Venezuelan opposition, have declared their plan to deliver aid into Venezuela on Saturday.

The Venezuelan government led by President Nicolas Maduro has sealed off the country's border with Brazil and suspended aerial and maritime communications with the neighboring islands of Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao, part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. It has also closed three bridges to Colombia.
