After the recognition by the USA, that the rival leader, Juan Guido was serving as the provisional President, the besieged President Nicolas Maduro tore the all diplomatic ties with the USA, allowing 72 hours to the American diplomats for leaving the country.
Mr. Maduro addressed to a gathering of the red-shirt wearing supporters at the Miraflores presidential palace, “ Before the people and nations of the world, and as constitutional President…I’ve decided to break diplomatic and political relations with the US. Get out! Leave Venezuela. We have (our) dignity dammit!”.
The declaration of the US President comes among infuriated protests in the South American country, with opponents claiming transparent elections to be held. The renowned media agency quoted the further addresses of Maduro from the balcony at Miraflores, “The imperial government of the United States is leading a coup attempt against us in order to install a puppet presidency that they can control Venezuela ”.
The rival-controlled National Assembly, which is led by Guido, called for the countrywide protests on a symbolic date for the Venezuelans. Around 61 years ago on this date, a civil and military insurgency in the nation had expelled former Venezuelan director, General Marcos Pérez Jiménez.
The financial crisis in the nation, paired with food storage, has reinforced an anti-Maduro sentiment across the South American nation, with the opposition charging Maduro of “usurping power”.
The US President expressed his opinion supporting Guisado, “The citizens of Venezuela have suffered for too long at the hands of the illegitimate Maduro regime. Today, I have officially recognized the President of the Venezuelan National Assembly, Juan Guido, as the Interim President of Venezuela ”.
