Venezuela bars Guaido from office for 15 yrs

Open this

"Maduro calls for hands off Venezuela while he invites security forces from Cuba and Russian Federation, so he and his cronies can keep plundering Venezuela", Pompeo posted.

Foreign ministry spokeswoman, Maria Zakharova said Moscow and Caracas are implementing an agreement that includes military-technical cooperation.

The arrival of two Russian air force planes carrying almost 100 Russian troops outside Caracas on Saturday has escalated the political crisis in Venezuela.

She referred to Trump's comments on Wednesday that "Russia has to get out" of Venezuela as well as to statements by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo that Washington does not plan to negotiate with Maduro and wants to end Russian Federation and Cuba's influence on Caracas. Donald Trump has warned that all options are on the table to remove Russian troops.

Guaido said that there are "hundreds of places where people are demanding their rights", nationwide.

"Russia, unlike Washington, "isn't threatening anyone" in Venezuela", the Russian foreign ministry said.

Although Berlin has sided with the United States and recognized self-proclaimed interim president Juan Guaido, it is keeping Otto Gebauer, whom he picked to represent Venezuela in Germany, in limbo and has not granted the representative key diplomatic status.

It must either cancel Brexit, seek a longer delay or leave the European Union bloc without a deal. Author Ian McEwan told us that he would support a second referendum "every minute of the day".

Maduro has responded to Guaido's sharp criticisms with his own tough language, describing him as a "diabolical puppet" attempting to execute a coup plot on behalf of the United States, which has imposed sanctions on Venezuela.

He answered a question about the recent news about Russian planes and military personnel arriving outside the Venezuelan capital, Caracas.

"The presence of Russian servicemen in Venezuela is linked to the discussion of cooperation in the military-technical sphere", Jose Rafael Torrealba Perez was quoted as saying.

The Venezuelan government said Thursday that it has barred opposition leader Juan Guaido from holding public office for 15 years, according to local reports.

Oil production and exports have declined steadily over the last few years, and there seems to be no end in sight to this freefall.

Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido, who many nations have recognized as the country's rightful interim ruler, takes part in a meeting regarding the condition of the water and electricity systems in Caracas, Venezuela, Venezuela, March 28, 2019. "No one cancelled this document", she said. Most countries in Europe and Latin America have also recognised Guaido.
