Maduro States Venezuela Is Breaking Allies With The US

Maduro States Venezuela Is Breaking Allies With The US

Guaido declared last week that he's interim president of Venezuela and vowed to topple Maduro's administration.

Earlier Saturday, a Venezuelan air force general defected from Maduro's administration and called on his compatriots to participate in protests against the socialist leader's rule. "Wives are sacred. So don't cross that red line".

He says most of the Venezuelan crude oil it buys goes to its Pascagoula refinery in Mississippi.

"For the foreseeable future, we feel like we can maintain a good stable operation and a safe operation on the ground in Venezuela", Chevron CEO Michael Wirth said Friday in a conference call with Wall Street analysts. "The head of state is [President] Mr. Nicolas Maduro, whose government is our partner in Venezuela", he said.

Spain, the United Kingdom and Germany are among nations pushing the European Union to recognize Juan Guaido "as president ad interim of Venezuela", according to a draft communique obtained by Bloomberg, in the latest move by the west to isolate President Nicolas Maduro.

Among Latin American nations, Cuba, Bolivia and Nicaragua remain solidly behind Maduro, while Mexico and Uruguay are calling for mediation.

Guaido's coup received immediate support from the United States and its allies in Latin America and Europe while Russia, Mexico, China and other countries urged not to interfere into the domestic situation in the country. "Do you think Venezuela is going to give up and obey your orders?"

Then the NAO went briefly and dramatically positive, coinciding with the ice loss pause, before dipping negative again. More importantly, though, the warning concludes that faster sea level rise is inevitable without intervention.

"This is no time for dialogue", Pence said at a church, prompting loud cheers among Venezuelan exiles.

Maduro, Chavez's handpicked successor, is facing the most serious challenge to his legitimacy yet, with the United States, Canada and almost a dozen Latin American countries piling on pressure for his removal from office. The previous day, a Boeing 757 owned by the Russian company Yerofei flew from Moscow to Caracas through Dubai, increasing speculation among journalists and anti-Maduro politicians that the jet was to remove $840 million, or 20 tons of gold, from Venezuela's national bank.

Maduro's adversaries say he has run roughshod over democratic institutions, including the opposition-run congress, and destroyed the once-buoyant economy through a corruption-riddled exchange control system and arbitrary nationalizations.

Previously unknown to the public at large, he has become the standard bearer of the opposition to Maduro, whether on the streets or on social networks. The United States has also recognised his leadership.

Spain's National Institute of Statistics says the number of people born in Venezuela who live in Spain jumped from 165,000 in 2015 to 255,000 past year. He described the move as a "test" for Venezuela's armed forces, which will have to choose if they allow the much needed aid to pass, or if they instead obey the orders of Maduro's government.

Brendan Cox, a former chief strategist at Save the Children, spoke out after the opposition leader attacked "outside interference" in the socialist South American country. Mr Guaido said that there is huge suffering, food shortages and that several people had recently died due to the lack of electricity in hospitals.

He said: "Power is evaporating from Maduro's hands with the passing of the hours".
