Juan Guaido Visits Brazil To Strengthen Humanitarian Aid To Venezuela

Published

on

Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido will hold talks with Brazilian President in order to create pressure on President Maduro. Guaido allies Brazil and Columbia are accumulating humanitarian aid for Venezuela.

Venezuela’s president Nicolas Maduro accused of crimes against humanity

Last month, Venezuelan Opposition leader Juan Guaido invoked constitutional provisions to assume an interim presidency. Most Western nations including Brazil recognize Guaido as Venezuela’s rightful leader. Despite Guaido’s nationwide protest and the United States crippling sanctions on Venezuela’s key oil industry, Maduro is not ready to give up control of state institutions.

The Venezuelan leader will travel to Brasilia for a two-day visit, where he will attend a meeting with U.S. Vice President Mike Pence and the regional Lima group about how to resolve the political and economic crisis in Venezuela. “The interim president of Venezuela will meet on Thursday afternoon with Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro at the Planalto Palace,” said Maria Teresa Belandria, appointed by Guaido as his ambassador to Brazil.

“Guaido will also meet with diplomats of other countries that have recognized him as Venezuela’s interim leader, pending new presidential elections”, Belandria added.

Brazil is supporting Venezuela’s opposition leader for aid.  The United States has funded aid in the form of  200 tonnes of food and medicine. The opposition failed to get that aid across the border as planned after Maduro closed it, and 25 Venezuelans were wounded by gunfire in protests across the frontier.

Maduro denies there is a crisis in Venezuela, even after seeing hyperinflation which has caused sharp increases in malnutrition and also intensified the spread of preventable disease, affecting 3.4 million Venezuelans since 2015. The socialist leader, Maduro, and allies like Russia and Cuba have accused the opposition of using aid as an excuse for foreign intervention. ” Washington would impose more sanctions on high-ranking members of the regime and their financial affairs” this week and next”, Elliott Abrams, the U.S. special envoy for Venezuela.

While addressing the U.N. Human Rights Council, Venezuela’s foreign minister, Jorge Arreaza emphasised saying, “Maduro and Trump meet to try to find common ground and explain their differences.”

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence ruled out the idea of talks on Twitter saying, “The only thing to discuss with Maduro at this point is the time and date for his departure. For democracy to return and for Venezuela to rebuild – Maduro must go”.
