Guaidó's father urges military to act in Venezuela's best interests

With Venezuela convulsed by crisis, Trump's hawks take dramatic turn

Vladimir Putin offers support to embattled Venezuelan president

"The civil rights, freedom and safety of all members of the National Assembly, including its president, Juan Guaido, need to be observed and fully respected", Mogherini said.

The move comes as opposition leaders call for Venezuela's military to turn against Maduro.

Venezuela President Nicolas Maduro looks on during a memorial tribute for former President of Cuba Fidel Castro at the Antonio Maceo Revoloution Square before his burial. "That would create a risky precedent for any other person who would want to proclaim themselves the president of something".

But Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has refused to condemn his hard-left ally Maduro and instead tore into interference in the country.

Moscow joined China, Turkey and Iran in standing firm behind Maduro. "I will continue to use the full weight of United States economic and diplomatic power to press for the restoration of Venezuelan democracy".

Washington recognised Juan Guaido as the country's interim president earlier this week, angering Mr Maduro who has retaliated by threatening to expel U.S. diplomats from the country.

But Guaidó, in a letter posted on Twitter the same day, asked foreign diplomatic personnel to remain in Venezuela.

Then the Japanese failed to serve out the set, and that was the moment that something broke in her performance. The 17th-seeded Keys has reached the semifinals or better at three of the last five Grand Slam tournaments.

Did this come as a surprise?

Anti-government protesters cheer after Juan Guaido, head of Venezuela's opposition-run congress, declared himself interim president, January 23, 2019.

Russian Federation accused the United States of trying to usurp power in Venezuela and warned against US military intervention there, putting it at odds with Washington and the European Union which backed protests against one of Moscow's closest allies.

Does anyone else agree with Donald Trump?

The decision to confront Maduro directly was only possible because of strong support from the Trump administration, which led a chorus of mostly conservative Latin American governments that immediately recognized Guaido.

Maduro's claims the United States has a $120-million fund for "buying" Venezuelan officers.

The situation in Venezuela has the world's major powers quickly picking sides.

Much as it did in 2014 over the popular uprising that ousted Ukraine's Viktor Yanukovych, Kremlin officials dub the street protests in Venezuela a Western plot. "[They] want to take down [Venezuela], not because it is mismanaged or poor, but because it is financing a unity in Latin America independent from the U.S.".

It has a long history of intervening - both directly and indirectly - to change governments in South America. "They are there to protect those at the highest levels of the government", Yevgeny Shabaev, a Cossack leader with ties to military contractors, told the Guardian by telephone. They don't have friends or loyalties.

"We think consistent with our recognition of Juan Guaido as the constitutional interim president of Venezuela that those revenues should go to the legitimate government".

Maduro retaliated by breaking off relations with the United States, his biggest trade partner. Two of Venitez's female relatives recently fled Venezuela and travelled "for days" to Peru by bus and on foot, she said.

Dimitris Pantoulas, a political analyst in Caracas, said discontent was spreading across the country.
