US emergency aid for Venezuela arrives at Colombian border

US emergency aid for Venezuela arrives at Colombian border”

U.S. President Trump acknowledged in an interview Sunday the use of U.S. military force in Venezuela is "an option".

A recent handout picture released by the Venezuelan presidency showing Venezuela's President Nicolas Maduro (C) attending a military ceremony.

No details have been released on exactly how the opposition plans to get the shipments into Venezuela.

Elliott Abrams, Washington's special envoy on Venezuela, said the aid effort was being coordinated with Guaido's team but that the aid would not be forced into Venezuela.

Major European Union nations have joined the United States, Canada and a group of Latin American countries in recognising Guaido as interim ruler.

Craig Faller claimed Venezuela had about 2000 generals and the majority of them were loyal to Maduro because of the wealth they have amassed from drug trafficking, petroleum revenue and business revenue. Some Maduro critics say the Venezuelan people would welcome a USA led regional effort to force the entrenched leader from power.

The economic collapse adds to years of mismanagement and underinvestment in the oil industry to further complicate attempts in Venezuela, one of OPEC's five founding members, to stop the steep decline of its oil production. The United States has urged the countries of the world to recognize Guaidó as the country's president.

More than 3 million Venezuelan people have fled the country amid an aggravating humanitarian crisis and an extreme poverty rate of 40 percent.

"I think it is better for the transition to democracy in Venezuela that he be outside the country", Abrams said.

'The revolution is more alive than ever, ' Maduro said.

"Maduro has proven he will manipulate any calls for negotiations to his advantage and he has often used so-called dialogues as a way to play for time", he said. As of this month, Venezuela's production could accelerate the plunge because under the new USA sanctions, Venezuela will not be able to import US naphtha to dilute its heavy crude grades.

He said the supplies would be delivered to Venezuelans when it was "logistically safe" to do so.

Guaido has galvanized the opposition since taking over as head of Venezuela's National Assembly in January.
