Venezuela's Guaido expresses concern over Greek position

She says Canada needs to play a leading role in the Lima Group, which includes more than a dozen countries in the Americas, minus the United States, because the crisis in Venezuela is unfolding in Canada's global backyard.

The Saturday evening announcement that the missions would remain open was a retreat after days of bellicose rhetoric prompted by the US decision to recognize National Assembly leader Juan Guaido as the nation's rightful head of state.

The caution came after Spain, Britain, France, the Netherlands and Germany said Saturday they would recognize Guaido as interim president unless Maduro calls elections within eight days.

Yet Maduro recently argued that America's involvement in the rebellion against him entails more than after-the-fact support.

Maduro said he wants peace, But he announced more military games next month which he says will be "the most important in the history of Venezuela". He said he also wanted his own diplomats "to defend Venezuelan interests in the U.S." comparing the arrangement to that of the US and Cuba, which had no diplomatic relations but maintained ties through lower-level officials in each country.

The Vatican years ago was frustrated in its attempt to mediate between socialist President Nicolas Maduro and Venezuela's opposition, which has the backing of many Venezuelan bishops.

"The people of Venezuela believe in each one of you", Silva said, handing them the leaflets.

Pompeo named American diplomat Elliott Abrams as the Trump administration's new special envoy to Venezuela.

The 35-day-long shutdown over President Trump's demand for border wall funding forced some federal workers to head to food shelters or fall behind on their rent.

Maduro noted the diplomatic staff of the U.S. Embassy in Caracas had left his country, however, the both sides agreed to continue negotiations for the protection of officials in the two countries. Remaining personnel will stay in their respective embassies, protected by "diplomatic prerogatives" during that time, according to Arreaza's statement.

The "State of the Union" episode also featured author Jerome Corsi, who said that information about him in last week's indictment of Roger Stone was "accurate" and said that he would "affirm that if asked to in court". However, U.S. refiners have also upped their gasoline output levels as they increase distillate fuel production as well, as it fetches higher margins. France, Germany and Spain threatened to follow the United States in recognizing Guaido as the true leader.

The increased USA supply, the country is now the world's largest producer, and the economic slowdown are weighing on the oil price outlook. That's because Venezuela's oil shipments to China and Russian Federation are usually taken as repayment for billions of dollars in debts. Russian Federation and China back Maduro.

"Australia calls for a transition to democracy in Venezuela as soon as possible".
