Tarek William Saab said Venezuela will seek the capture of Jordan Goudreau, a military veteran who has claimed responsibility for the attack, as well as Juan José Rendón and Sergio Vergara, two US-based advisers to opposition leader Juan Guaidó.
“They are living in impunity,” Mr Saab said.
“In tranquility over there.”
US law enforcement is investigating Mr Goudreau, though it remains unclear if he will charged.
President Donald Trump does not recognise Maduro’s government, making it highly unlikely that his administration would accept any extradition request.
The Trump administration has denied all responsibility in the armed raid, which resulted in the arrests of two Americans, Luke Denman and Airan Berry, who were purportedly hired by Mr Goudreau’s private firm to participate in the failed assault.
In an interview with Fox News Channel today, Mr Trump said he “didn’t know too much” about the attack and again denied any US government involvement.
“It wasn’t led by Gen George Washington, obviously,” he said.
“This was not a good attack.”
Venezuelan authorities have been insisting that Mr Trump’s government was behind the plot, with Mr Saab noting today that the US had previously offered a US$15 million bounty for Maduro’s arrest, which he said opened the door for such attacks.
“That gives a green light for an incursion into our territory,” he said.
Denman and Berry are both former US special forces soldiers who served in Iraq. In video statements aired on Venezuela’s state television, both said they’d been hired by Mr Goudreau to train rebel troops in Colombia and target Maduro.
Mr Goudreau also has said they were part of his operation.
Mr Rendón has acknowledged giving Mr Goudreau $50,000 to cover some expenses and said that he and Mr Vergara signed an agreement with the three-time Bronze Star recipient.
Meanwhile, Mr Goudreau has presented what said is an audio recording made on a hidden mobile phone in which Mr Guaidó can be heard briefly greeting the combat vet via video conference.
The opposition leader recognised by the US and about 60 other nations has Venezuela’s rightful president has denied any involvement in the operation.
Mr Saab said Venezuela is issuing 22 new arrest orders and did not mention Mr Guaidó among them.
