European Union warns Venezuela’s Maduro against arresting challenger Guaido

US Criticizes Guaido for Failed Coup in Venezuela

Maduro, in turn, blasted the move as a coup staged by Washington and said he was severing diplomatic ties with the US.

During Tuesday's council debate, Abrams and Venezuelan Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza disagreed sharply over who was responsible for violence that flared when Venezuelan troops blocked the shipments.

"We work very closely with your state and coordinate actions in the worldwide arena", Lavrov told Rodriguez.

Furthermore, the USA and its allies want to literally force the supplies into Venezuela, violating its sovereignty in the process and cynically showing that Trump only cares about border security when it concerns his country and not any others.

Opposition leader Juan Guaido, who many nations have recognised as the country's rightful interim ruler makes declarations during a joint press conference with Paraguay's President Mario Abdo Benitez at the Lopez Palace in Asuncion, Paraguay, March 1, 2019. Guaido said he was "taking off", but did not say where the plane was heading.

"We cooperate tightly and coordinate our actions on the worldwide arena, and at the moment (our cooperation) is gaining special importance under the circumstances of Venezuela facing a frontal attack and a shameless intervention into its internal affairs", said the Russian Federation foreign minister.

Several countries, including the United States, Lima Group members (excluding Mexico), Australia, Albania, Georgia and Israel, as well as the Organization of American States, recognized him.




The US recognized Guaido as Venezuela's interim president last month, and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and many other countries did the same.

Maduro says Guaido is trying to foment a US -backed coup against him.

Russian Federation and the United States have been at loggerheads over a US-led campaign for global recognition of Juan Guaido, the Venezuelan opposition leader and head of the country's elected National Assembly, over President Nicholas Maduro.

"We are facing a very delicate situation and every minute we are approaching an outcome we hope will not be catastrophic", he said.

The Supreme Court had imposed a travel ban on him after he invoked the country's constitution on January 23 to assume an interim presidency, which most Western nations now recognise as legitimate.

The Treasury Department sanctioned six Venezuelan security officials earlier on Friday, whom it said were "obstructing" humanitarian aid deliveries last weekend. We know that there are dozens and dozens of other governments who share that concern.

Mr Abrams said the United States was "very concerned" about Mr Guaido's ability to return home safely and warned of a "very large reaction" if he is arrested.
