Maduro hangs on as Venezuelan protests peter out

Opposition leader Leopoldo Lopez center is greeted by a supporter in Caracas Tuesday

Although Maduro was legally elected in 2013 to replace his mentor, Hugo Chavez, his 2018 election was denounced by both Venezuelan opposition leaders and the global community as being a sham.

A defiant Maduro, who had been absent throughout most of Tuesday, emerged on state television late at night surrounded by his closest advisers and blasting Guiado's move as a US -backed coup attempt.

Guaido's choice of International Workers' Day for the major protest came as he tried to win the support of union leaders, a traditional base that have always shown support for Maduro and his socialist party. The U.S. has been urging Russian Federation not to get involved in the Venezuelan conflict, following a longstanding U.S. policy of trying to prevent European influence in Latin America dating back to the President James Monroe, and the Monroe Doctrine. The world needs to know that Maduro now no longer has the support of the military, although he's spreading fear, rebellion and insecurity.

The United States is keeping a close watch on the developments in Venezuela.

In agreement with the statement, Arreaza commented: "We thank President Erdoğan for his strong and open support for global law and peace and for his respect for democracy in Venezuela". "There can be no impunity, there must be justice for there to be peace in Venezuela". He can not crush militarily a public agitation and outcry to oust him, particularly in the name of freedom and democracy.

Spain's government confirmed that Venezuelan opposition activist Leopoldo Lopez is at the Spanish embassy in Caracas following an attempted military uprising on Tuesday that aimed to overthrow President Nicolas Maduro.

In a defiant TV address, Mr Maduro refused to relinquish his leadership, saying the Venezuelan military has "emerged victorious".

Maduro, who says Guaido is a puppet of the United States seeking to orchestrate a coup, called a march of his own supporters on Wednesday.

Earlier this week, Bolton denied that he thinks President Trump was intellectually challenged after Mark Groombridge, a former aide of Bolton's going back to the Bush administration, said that "deep in his heart, [Bolton] believes the president is a moron".

Other countries like France, Japan, and the UK sided with the United States in recognising Guaido, while countries like China, Russia and Turkey slammed external interference in Venezuela's internal affairs.

The UN Secretary General had asked for a dialogue in January to solve the problem.

"Bolton, Pompeo (and Guaidó) say they want a 'peaceful transition, ' even while creating chaos in the streets and calling for a military coup", Gerry Condon of Veterans for Peace wrote for Common Dreams on Wednesday.

"We are doing what we can now to collect intelligence and make sure we have good visibility on what is happening down in Venezuela and also be prepared to support the President should he require more from the USA military", Dunford said.

Some of the countries shaping the anti-Atlantic axis, including Turkey, have strongly condemned the coup attempt.

"We hope parties in Venezuela will proceed from the interests of the country and people, avoid bloody conflicts and restore the country's stable development momentum as soon as possible", the foreign ministry said in a statement on Thursday.

The Bolivian president said the uprising was just "serving foreign interests".

For his part, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Wednesday denounced Washington's support for the Venezuelan opposition in their attempt to seize power.
