Venezuelan Ambassador Reacts to European Position

Opposition politician Juan Guaido shot to fame on January twenty-third when he declared himself Venezuela’s interim president. Since then, Guaido has been getting the support of many powerful and influential nations as well as the European parliament, which recognized Guaido as de facto head of state. European governments, divided over whether to recognize Guaido, also agreed to lead an international crisis group with South American nations to seek new elections, setting a ninety-day time limit, and threatening further economic sanctions. Ambassador Argote reacted to that position.

“I saw in the United Nations meeting, in that meeting that some countries in the European Union that say that they gave us eight days in order to do something, in order to change some things but I wonder why eight days. Why do they mean with eight days? Is this international law? Is this in the UN Charter? Maybe it could be five says, or maybe one month. I don’t know. It sounds strange. I saw yesterday that they will form an observation group to see what is happening in Venezuela. They will give ninety days, three months, in order to see what is happening in Venezuela, in order to reorganize their position about the crisis in Venezuela.”
