After mass protests in Venezuela, Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland tells DW that the Lima group of American nations will support opposition leader Juan Guaido's claim to the presidency.
The US and Venezuelan leaders have confirmed for the first time that their governments are talking behind the scenes. No mention of the opposition was made.
In a USAID memo, Donald Trump's administration said that funds would go to paying salaries of Juan Guaido's interim government, local NGO's and the promotion of independent media.
National Security Adviser John Bolton said Venezuela was now part of an "exclusive club of rogue states," and issued a stark warning to any countries wanting to do business with Caracas.
Venezuela responded to President Donald Trump's move to freeze assets in the US by skipping talks with Juan Guaido's team in Barbados. The government accused Guaido of 'celebrating and promoting' so-called US aggression.
