Venezuela challenger plans caravans for USA aid

"It's a political war of the United States empire", Maduro said in the interview, "of the interests of the extreme right that today is governing - of the Ku Klux Klan - that rules the White House, to take over Venezuela".

Many European countries and the USA have recognised Guaido as the legitimate president, but Maduro is backed by Russia, China, and Venezuela's military.

The struggle now centres on emergency food and medicine from the United States warehoused on the Colombian border town of Cucuta.

"It's unfortunate that Europe, after being kicked by Donald Trump, are now behind Donald Trump", Maduro said of the European countries which contest his presidency.

Venezuela's then-president Hugo Chavez broke off ties with Israel in 2009 after Operation Cast Lead in Gaza.

Maduro has remained defiant in the face of domestic and worldwide pressure.

On Tuesday, the Israel Hayom daily published a short interview with Guaido, who indicated that his government would take a very different stance toward the Jewish state from his predecessor. "We are and will continue to be on the streets!"

The envoy does not have access to the Venezuelan embassy facilities in Brasilia. It was then relocated to Tel Aviv along with other diplomatic missions, and closed down in 2009.

Envoys for Venezuela's self-declared caretaker leader Juan Guaido met Vatican officials and lobbied the Italian government for support on Monday in their quest to keep global pressure on socialist President Nicolas Maduro.

Guterres met with Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza in NY, at the request of Caracas, as the standoff between President Maduro and Guaido hardened.

While Venezuela once had one of the largest Jewish communities in the region, numbering some 25,000 in 1999, only about 6,000 Jews are believed to remain in the country, with numerous rest having fled to Israel, Canada, the USA and elsewhere.

Maduro told the BBC that there was "more or less 80 tonnes" of gold held in London which he hoped would not be "robbed" from Venezuela. "I assume they are happy we are renewing ties with Israel".

Thousands cheer as Venezuela's self-proclaimed interim president Juan Guaido speaks during a demonstration against the government of President Nicolas Maduro.

The rallies took place almost three weeks to the day that Guaido invoked a constitutional provision to declare himself Venezuela's interim president, arguing that Maduro's re-election previous year was a sham. But throughout the unrest, the Jewish community had kept to a line of strict neutrality.

The Vatican "underscored the deep concern that a just and peaceful solution could be found urgently to overcome the crisis while respecting human rights, seeking the good of all the country's people and avoiding bloodshed", it said in a statement. "I'm sure Israel will also help us".

Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido attends a meeting of students in Caracas today with his wife Fabiana Rosales after a United Nations adviser on judicial independence said the travel ban and asset freeze imposed on him do not respect legal standards. More than three million Venezuelans have left their homes, with a million emigrating to neighboring Colombia, UNHCR said in November. Security forces responded with raids that have killed dozens of people.

"Nicolas Maduro should put his hand on his heart and accept that aid", said Mayerly Prada, among a small group of protesters on the Colombian side of the Tienditas International Bridge.
