Maduro Asks OPEC For Help As US Sanctions Bite”

In January, opposition leader Juan Guaido proclaimed himself the country's interim president and was immediately recognized by the United States and a number of other regional states, while Maduro was backed by China, Russia and a number of other countries as Venezuela's only president.

Venezuela's self-proclaimed interim leader has told RT that the "corrupt regime" there is exclusively to blame for its dire humanitarian situation, and promised that democracy will be embraced, with free elections, once Maduro is gone.

Shipments of US food, medicine, and humanitarian aid are on the Colombian side, with a tanker and two large trucks sitting in the middle of the bridge.

But a Venezuelan doctor who was part of a protest Sunday accused Maduro of sinking Venezuelan medicine to a "medieval" level.

The U.S. wants to "steal Citgo from Venezuela", Quevedo said on Monday. "There are armed forces here and a people to defend the honor, dignity, and decorum".

"We are a pacifist people as long as no one messes with us, that Donald Trump does not threaten us", Maduro said.

It expresses "concern over the threats to use force against the territorial integrity and political independence of.Venezuela", according to the draft.

Guaido, the 35 year-old head of the opposition-controlled National Assembly, stunned Venezuela in January by declaring himself interim president after the legislature declared Maduro a "usurper" following his May 2018 reelection in a vote disputed by the opposition and worldwide community.

Venezuela has been in political turmoil in the past weeks, with the opposition blaming the country's President Maduro over an ailing economy, hyperinflation, power cuts, and shortages of basic items, urging him to resign.

"Our country hopes to receive the solidarity and full support of the member countries of OPEC and its ministerial Conference, in the fight we are now having against the illegal and arbitrary intrusion of the United States in the internal affairs of Venezuela".
