Venezuela's Guaido calls for new protests as pressure on Maduro rises

Venezuela's Guaido calls for new protests as pressure on Maduro rises”

Worldwide support: The United States, along with Australia, several Latin America and European Union countries, refused to recognise Maduro's reelection.

Mr Guaido also sent a message to the military on Sunday, asking for support and ordering it not to repress civilians during an event in which supporters handed out copies of a proposed amnesty for people accused of crimes in the Maduro government.

Former senior foreign policy adviser to President Bill Clinton says that the Trump administration needs to focus on supporting the Venezuelan opposition.

"Israel joins the United States, Canada, most of the countries of Latin America and countries in Europe in recognizing the new leadership in Venezuela", his statement read.

Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., told CNN's Jake Tapper on Sunday that he would oppose American military intervention in Venezuela... even as Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro insists that a coup effort by opposition leader Juan Guaidó was orchestrated by the United States.

Nintendo Has No Plans for a Switch Price Cut
The current Nintendo Switch only has a 720p LCD display, the refreshed model will purportedly boast a 1080p OLED panel. In fact, Ultimate's debut was, NPD said, the best launch month for a console-exclusive game in " video game history".

"I don't think any president of any party who is doing his or her job would be doing the job properly if they took anything off the table", Mulvaney said on "Fox News Sunday."

Guaido took advantage of a major street demonstration on January 23 to swear himself in as the country's rightful leader, accusing Maduro of usurping power following a disputed 2018 re-election that countries around the world described as a fraud. "For military officials in Venezuela to follow and uphold the constitution they swore allegiance to". He urged Pompeo to say whether the US will use military force.

While Venezuela once had one of the largest Jewish communities in the region, numbering some 25,000 in 1999, only about 6,000 Jews are believed to remain in the country, with numerous rest having fled to Israel, Canada, the U.S. and elsewhere.

"We can not hand pick leaders for other countries on behalf of multinational corporate interests", she said one tweet.

The E.U. has given Maduro eight days to call new, credible elections or it will also back the 35-year-old opposition leader. No one gives us ultimata.

Last year, Maduro was re-elected in what the US called "a sham election", which the European Union said was neither free nor fair. "But the loss of fast cash from Citgo and the USA market will further crush the country's decimated oil production and cash flows, meaning more starvation and more people fleeing the country".

When Guaido proclaimed himself acting interim president US President Donald Trump quickly recognised him.

Over the past few days, Venezuela has been witnessing mass anti-government protests.

While small rebellions against Maduro have broken out in Venezuela's armed forces in recent months, there has been no large scale military uprising against him.

At a special UN Security Council session Saturday, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo described Maduro as part of an "illegitimate mafia state" responsible for Venezuela's economic collapse.
