  • Venezuela's Guaido Urges Italian Leaders To Meet With Representatives

    According to a report by Reuters, Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido has urged Italy's ruling coalition leaders to meet with representatives as he seeks their explicit backing as interim president alongside most other European nations. Reuters reports that the hard-right League has expressed strong support for Guaido, but coalition partner the 5-Star Movement has not, making Italy the only major European Union nation not to recognize him as Venezuela’s temporary head of state. On Wednesday, Guaido reportedly asked if he could send a delegation “to illustrate the plan of action to renew democracy in Venezuela” through fair elections.

  • Venezuela Leader Denounces Helicopter Coup Bid

    A stolen police helicopter reportedly fired grenades at government buildings in Venezuela overnight, in what the country's president characterized as an attempted coup. The oil-rich nation has been debilitated by months of deadly anti-government protests, along with a failing economy and shortages of food and medicine. President Nicolas Maduro blamed the air assault on a rogue police pilot, who allegedly escaped the scene and was being hunted by authorities. No one was injured in the attack.

  • Venezuela Crisis And Colombia Peace Dominate Latin American Summit

    Venezuela's political crisis and Colombia's stuttering peace process will probably dominate the Ibero-American Summit, instead of an official agenda about youth, entrepreneurship and education. Venezuela's socialist government is facing an escalation of opposition protests, after electoral authorities suspended a referendum on President Nicolas Maduro's rule, which could have led to his departure from office. The country has the world's largest oil reserves, but faces a prolonged recession made worse by currency depreciation and low oil prices. All those issues cause many people to skip meals due to shortages and soaring prices. Meanwhile Colombia, who is hosting the summit, is scrambling to save a peace deal with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC. The deal was rejected in a plebiscite vote this month by less than half a percentage point. Summit leaders support the peace process, which would end 52 years of war that have killed nearly a quarter of a million people.
