United Nations chief willing to broker end to Venezuela crisis

Venezuela's Maduro launches large-scale war game amid crisis

On Tuesday opposition supporters returned to the streets nationwide to keep the heat on Maduro and demand that he allow humanitarian aid into Venezuela, where food and medicine shortages are rife.

Incumbent Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, in turn, blasted the move as a coup staged by Washington and said he was severing diplomatic ties with the US.

Last Friday, a group of countries led by the US met in the United Nations headquarters in NY to discuss a separate draft resolution regarding the Venezuelan crisis which TASS quoted as expressing "full support" for the Venezuelan National Assembly led by self-proclaimed president Juan Guaido as the country's "only democratically elected institution".

On a related matter, Tarre said that a small portion of the humanitarian aid now sitting in a warehouse in the Colombian border city of Cucuta will enter Venezuela "at the end of this week or the start of next week".

Guaido says nearly 100,000 Venezuelans have signed up as volunteers to help bring in the aid and distribute it to those most in need.

"We are a pacifist people as long as no one messes with us, that Donald Trump does not threaten us", Maduro said. But anti-Maduro street protests have come and gone, and large-scale military defections have failed to materialise. Guaido, meanwhile, said on Monday that the first shipment of the humanitarian aid had already been received.

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

Guaido said he was issuing a "direct order" to the armed forces to allow the aid in, though so far there are not clear signs the military will disobey Maduro. "We lack the factor that ultimately sustains dictatorships, which is the Armed Forces", he added.

"We want a prosperous Venezuela, as it was before", said Mery Marin, a 25-year-old electrician. "Who are we? Venezuelan doctors!"

"Amid the crisis, interim President Juan Guaidó has vowed to help deliver the aid packages by appealing to the military and opening aid routes with the help of volunteers". We do not now have any electoral mechanism that works because everything has been tarnished by fraud.

On the investigation that the Venezuelan Comptroller announced it would open for alleged worldwide resources received, Guaido said that "an absolutely deteriorated regime with no credibility does not have any authority or legitimacy to speak after they have stolen all the money". "They hate us, they belittle us, because they only believe in their own interests, and in the interests of the United States", he said.

He also called on all Venezuelans to help hand out the supplies.

Accusing those blocking aid of being "almost genocidal", he likewise warned that the military would be held responsible for the deaths of protesters - and reaffirmed his call for a mass march on Tuesday in memory of the estimated 40 people killed in disturbances since January 21.
