France, Germany, Spain Give Maduro 8 Days to Hold Snap Election

Spain on Saturday gave an ultimatum to Maduro, saying that it would recognize Guaido as country’s president if the incumbent leader fails to announce election in eight days, according to Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez, Sputnik reported.

“If a fair, free and transparent election in Venezuela is not convened within eight days, Spain will recognize Juan Guaido as the president of Venezuela,” Sanchez said in an official statement.

At the same time, the German government announced that it was ready to recognise Guaido as interim president of Venezuela if the similar conditions as brought forward by Madrid are not met, according to the government’s spokesman statement made on Twitter.

A similar attitude has been echoed by France as French President Emmanuel Macron stated on Saturday that Paris will recognise Guaido if Maduro fails to announce elections during the previously mentioned period.

UK Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt also said Thursday that Maduro was not a legitimate leader of Venezuela and the country should be led by Guaido.

“We are extremely concerned about the situation in Venezuela, but it is clear that Nicholas Maduro is not the legitimate leader of Venezuela”, Hunt said.

According to Hunt, the presidential election in Venezuela in May 2018 was “deeply flawed” as “there were counting irregularities and the opposition was banned.”

“This regime has done untold damage to the people of Venezuela, 10 percent of the population have left Venezuela such is the misery they are suffering. So the United Kingdom believes Juan Guaido is the right person to take Venezuela forward. We are supporting the US, Canada, Brazil and Argentina to make that happen”, he added.

Following the three states’ official announcements, the Russian Foreign Ministry said that the statements made by France, Germany, and Spain with regards to recognising Guaido as Venezuela’s interim president were identical.

The statements come after on Wednesday, Guaido declared himself the country’s interim president, with the US, Canada, and allies in Latin America recognising the politician as such.

Maduro, in his turn, accused Washington of attempting to stage a coup in Venezuela and announced his decision to cut off diplomatic relations with the United States.

The United Nations Security Council will meet on Saturday at the request of the US to discuss the situation in Venezuela.

  1. # John Z. hier schreiben Sie sehr richtig, die drei von Washingtons Pudeln. Es zeigt sich hier auch welche Heckenschützen wir haben.. Es kann sehr leicht zu einem Flächenbrand werden.. Gruß an alle Blogger Werner aus Deutschland.

  2. I personally give 10 days to Germany, France and Spain to replace their government and put those whom I will point out to power!
    And before that Maduro suit them? All as if by conductor’s wand. Double-faced hypocrites and predators. Where were you when this miserable country and people were daily impoverished? When inflation was thousands of percent. When people had nothing to eat! Where were your concerns? Economic proposals? Humanitarian assistance? And now you put ultimatums to a sovereign country?
    We are now commemorating the anniversary of breakthrough of the blockade of Leningrad during WW2, in Russia. The German and French press has allowed itself unintelligible remarks about how we celebrate it. I want to ask – are you tired of living normally? But that is a completely different story. We will remember this.

    • Maduro, of course, was the weakest leader of his country. A worthless politician and a bad economist. In addition to hard-to-recover oil, they did not bother to produce anything. Billions were invested by China, Russia, USA. They danced and enjoyed themselves until a severe crisis occurred (I note, not without the help of the United States). But this is not a reason to carry out reforms and change the government bloc forcibly.
      And now half of Venezuela goes hungry to the protests, and the other (young) part is trying to make money on webcam porn sites. Someone offers to shed blood in the name of the revolution?
