Earlier in the day, the European Parliament announced it is planning to consider a draft resolution on recognising self-proclaimed interim president of Venezuela Juan Guaido as head of the Latin American country.

“Targeted sanctions against the kleptocrats who have enriched themselves on the back of the rest of the population who are very poor, that is something I think can be effective”, UK Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs Jeremy Hunt stated Thursday during an informal meeting of EU foreign ministers in Romania, according to Guardian.

This comes as Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido said in an op-ed in the New York Times that he had had secret talks with members of the nation’s military whose support he sees as a key to power.

The situation in Venezuela has deteriorated since the head of the opposition-controlled National Assembly Juan Guaido proclaimed himself interim president of the country last week.

The US and some other countries immediately recognised Guaido as the head of Venezuela, freezing some of the state’s assets and sanctioning its oil industry.

Meanwhile, the UK, Germany, France, and Spain declared on Saturday their intention to recognise Guaido as the country’s interim president if Caracas does not announce snap presidential elections within eight days.

Hehe, not unpleasing idea to me… Thus, as things are going, seems that a 2nd Brexit referendum is on the table and Brexit may end 1st being postponed then cancelled… Nevertheless, seems that Goldman-Sachs is into taking steps to move their offices from London to Paris so, if “THE Firm” moves, the ‘City’ is really going bad : G-S is the biggest affairs-bank on Earth… T.May ends having been pushed into renegotiating with Brussels and Brussels answered with a buzz-off. Since they end with a technical deadlock, I don’t really see other option than a 2nd referendum which, from what… Read more »

@Daeshbags-Sux, the iron lady got great handouts to help a UK that was broke. The UK has played the mercenary ever since and the net payers are fed up with the mercenary attitude. We are also fed up with others that play mercenary or grand nation. And we is not only my nation. Beware.

Let the US submarine go down. No U turn. Just ship wreck.

Since Venezuela’s opposition leader Juan Guaido declared himself president on January 23, it has become obvious to all intelligent onlookers that this “people-power color revolution” is not directed by Trump at all but rather by what has been exposed as the trans-national “Deep State”. The main architect who works behind the scenes is Canada, its Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland ( a close friend of George Soros) and her Oxford cohort Ben Rowswell, a former Ambassador to Venezuela. Canada is also the founder of the Lima Group, a coalition of 14 Latin American nations (11 of whom endorsed the Venezuelan color… Read more »
