Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro on Sunday condemned a "coup" against his leftist ally Evo Morales after the Bolivian president said he would resign following calls from his country's military to step down.

Morales' allies in Bolivia deserted him following weeks of protests over a disputed Oct. 20 election that has roiled the South American nation. Morales, in power for nearly 14 years, said earlier on Sunday he would resign to help restore stability.

"We categorically condemn the coup realized against our brother president," Maduro, a socialist, said on Twitter.
