France U.K. Recognize Juan Guaido as Venezuela Interim PresidentMore

In January, the U.S. recognised Juan Guaido as the "legitimate" head of the country, handing him control of the country's assets in the US.

Turning to Washington's role in the Venezuelan crisis, Maduro claimed that "the military option is on (U.S. President) Donald Trump's table".

It is time for a new start, with free and fair elections in accordance with global democratic standards.

"We know that the people of Venezuela are facing tremendous hardship and they need our help, as do the countries who have taken in those fleeing violence", Mr. Trudeau said.

The sitting Venezuelan president has written a letter to Pope Francis requesting a renewal of dialogue in the crisis, the Vatican Secretary of State, Cardinal Pietro Parolin, said in Abu Dhabi on Monday.

UK Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt soon followed suit, announcing on Twitter that Britain, "alongside European allies now recognizes [Juan Guaido] as interim constitutional president until credible elections can be held".

Critics of the hard-left Socialist Maduro - who is accused of running the OPEC nation of 30 million people like a dictatorship and wrecking its economy - blame the Venezuelan government's mismanagement for the lack of food and medical supplies. It is time for free and fair elections.

"Venezuela has to be the master of its own destiny, and it is up to the global community to help and respect the outcome of the democratic process and verify that it takes place with all necessary guarantees", he said.

French President Emmanuel Macron said in a tweet that "Venezuelans have the right to express themselves freely and democratically". We did not participate, none of us, at the inauguration of Maduro on January 10.

"He is the legitimate interim president for this task from Germany's point of view and from the point of view of several European countries".

She said the European Union will take part in a meeting with South American countries in Montevideo later this week "to try to find both a democratic and peaceful solution to the crisis in Venezuela".

Venezuelan opposition leader and self-proclaimed interim president Juan Guaido gives the thumps up to supporters, as he attends a rally against Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro's government in Caracas, Venezuela February 2, 2019. Madrid was among those to endorse Guaido as the "legitimate leader" of Venezuela.

"I call to reject intervention", he said, urging the soldiers to defend the country against "Yankee imperialism".

"The Bolivarian republic of Venezuela expresses its most energetic rejection of the decision by some European governments, which officially submit to the strategy of the USA administration to topple the government", Foreign Minister, Jorge Arreaza, tweeted.

President Maduro has rejected offers of aid from the USA, having told his supporters on Saturday that Venezuela was not "a country of beggars".

"Handing out ultimatums, sanctions, freezing Venezuelan goods ..."

In an interview with Spanish journalist Jordi Évole, Venezuela's president cited the Bible and past USA military debacles in an attempt to dissuade Washington from taking military action against Caracas.

"The unity of positions in the modern and most influential foreign powers leaves Maduro isolated and weakened, and it strengthens Guaido's leadership internally", said Luis Vicente Leon, a political analyst and director of the Datanalisis polling agency.

But the socialist leader showed no signs of caving in and lashed out at the European Union and the Trump administration, which has also put pressure on the Venezuelan government by imposing sanctions on Venezuelan oil exports and demanding Maduro's departure.

They join the U.S., Canada, Australia and a host of Latin American powers, including Brazil and Argentina.
