‘We're Not Beggars,’ Maduro Says, Barring Way for Food Trailers

‘We're Not Beggars,’ Maduro Says, Barring Way for Food Trailers ‘We're Not Beggars,’ Maduro Says, Barring Way for Food Trailers

Maduro has faced intense pressure since Guaido declared himself acting president on January 23, invoking a constitutional rule to open a rare challenge to Maduro's presidency.

Emergency medical kits that contain life-saving medical supplies and pharmaceuticals, each of which could serve a population of 10,000 in hospitals and community health centers for 90 days. On Wednesday the Venezuelan military, which backs Maduro, barricaded its own side of the border, vowing not to allow the aid to enter. On the other hand, Maduro said that U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo lied in recent statements about the presence of members of Hezbollah and in Venezuela, 'it is totally false, ' he said.

The United States is rapidly increasing assistance efforts to support our Hemispheric partners and people inside of Venezuela. "Venezuela is not suffering the humanitarian crisis fabricated by Washington over the last four years to justify intervening in our country".

During a presentation of the group's annual financial results, Total CEO Patrick Pouyanne said: "The accounts have been blocked in light of the United States decisions".

"I think it is better for the transition to democracy in Venezuela that he be outside the country", Abrams said. Inflation has skyrocketed, and since 2015, more than three million Venezuelans have fled to neighbouring countries due to scarcity of food, jobs and medicine.

Speaking at the opening of the meeting of the International Contact Group on Venezuela, Federica Mogherini, the EU's High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, underscored the importance of avoiding violence and armed conflicts.

President Klaus Iohannis said Romania chose to join other European Union countries in recognizing Guaido partly because Bucharest now holds the EU's rotating presidency. Simultaneously, President Donald Trump's administration has been urging Venezuelan officers to defect and support the opposition's claim to power. But Maduro has refused calls for him to step down, insisting Washington is orchestrating a coup against his government.

'Take all that humanitarian aid and give it to the people of Cucuta, where there is a lot of need, ' Maduro said at his news conference.

The contact group, which seeks a solution to Venezuela's political and economic crisis through dialogue and new presidential elections, includes Germany, the UK, Spain and France, and a handful of Latin American countries such as Uruguay, Ecuador and Costa Rica.

"If the White House's goal is regime change in Venezuela, which appears to be the case, then they should be concerned that their actions are generating a backlash against the U.S.in Venezuela and in the region", said Main.

Guadio is backed as the de facto leader by more than 40 nations, including the U.S. and major European powers, who want Maduro to step down.

"The time for dialogue with Maduro has long passed".

"It's not military intervention - it's worldwide humanitarian intervention", Medina added, noting that his grandfather was president of Venezuela during World War II and opposed the Nazis. "Humanitarian aid does not substitute for the economy of a country".
