Venezuela's Guaido vows to return to Caracas despite threat of prison

Updated : March 01, 2019 11:12 AM IST

Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido, visiting Brazil to drum up support for his bid to push for a change of government in his country, said on Thursday he will return to Caracas by Monday despite threats of imprisonment. Guaido said the leftist "regime" of President Nicolas Maduro was "weak, lacking support in Venezuela and international recognition." Speaking to reporters after meeting with Brazil's right-wing President Jair Bolsonaro, Guaido called for the enforcement of economic sanctions against the Maduro government to continue "so that everything is not robbed in Venezuela."

"We continue to strengthen relations with countries that have recognised our efforts to restore democracy in Venezuela and hold free elections," Guaido said in a Twitter message, after meeting in Brasilia with diplomats from about 20 European Union member states.
