"We are with you!"

A spokesperson said the U.S. stands with Mr Guaido, whom it recognised as the legitimate leader following the 2018 election, and was pushing for "a peaceful transition of power". The United States has had "many, many conversations that have given us every indication that the fact that Maduro's plane was parked on the tarmac and he was preparing himself to depart is a fact", he said.

They named the three as Venezuelan Defense Minister Vladimir Padrino, Supreme Court chief judge Maikel Moreno and presidential guard commander Ivan Rafael Hernandez Dala. In it, he announced he had the support of "brave soldiers" in Caracas.

"The moment is now", he said.

Spanish government spokeswoman Isabel Celaa said Madrid backed a "peaceful" outcome in Venezuela, and wanted to see "democratic elections" take place there.

The wholehearted embrace of the rebellion reflects the goals of an administration that from its earliest days has sought the removal of Maduro. But it was also an unusually full-throated endorsement by any government for a mass protest that was turning violent. While some believe Moscow could negotiate an exit and safe passage out of Venezuela for the president, there are few signs Putin is willing to give up on the government that gives him most geo-political clout in the Americas.

"We are with brother [Nicolas] Maduro and the friendly people of Venezuela", Morales wrote on Twitter, referring to the country's president.

Guaido, of Venezuela's opposition-controlled National Assembly, in January invoked the constitution to assume an interim presidency, arguing Maduro's re-election in 2018 was illegitimate.

Maduro and his government have repeatedly accused the United States of trying to foment a coup, and blame the economic devastation in the country on the tightening USA sanctions.

The congressman also discussed tariffs with Acting Consul General of Canada Douglas George, who presented Rep. Delaware's Farm Bureau says it supports President Trump's revised trade agreement with Canada and Mexico.

But others, including Russian Federation, are backing Mr Maduro.

Guiado went to the streets with activist Leopoldo Lopez - who said he'd been set free by members of the military in response to an order from Guaido. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo tweeted that "The US government fully supports the Venezuelan people in their quest for freedom and democracy". "The U.S. stands with them". He said the soldiers were joining him to protect the country's constitution.

"Today fearless soldiers, courageous patriots, fearless men supporting the constitution have answered our call", he said. The assertions were later repeated by Elliott Abrams, the U.S. envoy for Venezuela.

Help us grow and continue telling Israel's story to the world. Nonetheless, Abrams said he had been in contact with Guaido by text message at midafternoon and the opposition leader seemed "buoyant and determined".

The U.S. has been embarrassed by acting too soon in the past. While other countries in the hemisphere denounced the move, the administration of then President George W. Bush acknowledged the new government.

US Senator Marco Rubio has emerged as a primary backer of the ongoing attempted coup in Venezuela, as he rushed to Twitter to show his support for Washington protégé Juan Guaido - and faced much criticism from the Twitteratti.

For weeks, Guaido had been promising a final push against Maduro, dubbed "Operation Freedom", to coincide with planned protests Wednesday.

"If Cuban Troops and Militia do not immediately CEASE military and other operations for the goal of causing death and destruction to the Constitution of Venezuela, a full and complete embargo, together with highest-level sanctions, will be placed on the island of Cuba", Trump wrote on Twitter.
