Venezuela slams European Union countries for aligning with U.S.

Salvini calls Maduro criminal urges early elections in Venezuela

"The current humanitarian crisis is hitting all Venezuelans, including the more than 100,000 Italians who live in Venezuela", it said.

US President Donald Trump said military intervention in Venezuela was "an option", while the troubled Opec nation's ally Russian Federation warned against "destructive meddling".

Lavrov said Moscow considers the situation in Venezuela "alarming" particularly because of the recognition of Guaido as interim president by a range of countries.

Despite repeated calls for his resignation, Maduro has refused to step down, contending that he was legally the President of Venezuela.

Pope Francis on Tuesday acknowledged receiving a request from embattled Venezuelan President Nicholas Maduro to help relaunch talks to end the country's political crisis but ruled out any involvement unless opposition leader Juan Guaido requests it.

Venezuela has been under political turmoil since January 10 after Maduro was sworn-in for a second six-year term as the President, prompting protests by the country " s Opposition.

"We are observing a widespread rejection of the Maduro regime's illegitimate claim to power following fraudulent elections last May", he stated.

"Nicolas Maduro has not called Presidential elections within 8 day limit we have set", said British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt in a tweet.

So far, Maduro has rejected foreign aid.

They backed his argument that, as leader of the national assembly, he should take control because the presidency was left "vacant", due to Mr Maduro's sham re-election.

"This is already quite advanced, I hope that next week it can be announced by our representative in the United States", Paparoni said, though he did not give details about the nature of the USA -based fund or the financial institution involved.

This weekend he plans to oversee a deliberate provocation of the military by ordering in supplies of humanitarian aid.

The young lawmaker accused the military on Monday of planning to divert aid being stockpiled in Colombia, Brazil and an unidentified Caribbean island, in order to distribute it through the socialist government's subsidized food program for its own supporters.

On Saturday, an air force general defected to the opposition and reportedly fled to neighbouring Colombia, and posted a video on YouTube declaring that his country's transition to democracy was "imminent".

"If anyone believes that his management of the economy is in any way an example of how to go about it, then they need their heads examined".

"Under Maduro's stewardship, oil-dependent Venezuela has plunged into an economic crisis, suffering from hyperinflation and shortages of food and medicine".

He said: "We are not beggars".

Guaido is "now the only legitimate representative of the Venezuelan state".

He has supported plans for a meeting of Latin American and European Union states in a "Contact Group" in Montevideo on Thursday, though.
