Can Maduro hold onto power in Venezuela? | The Stream

Yet Maduro retains control of state institutions, leaving the two sides locked in a stalemate.

The Russian draft text, seen by Reuters, expresses support for a political solution to the crisis and backs the Venezuelan government as the primary coordinator of worldwide assistance efforts in the country.

Russia, China, Cuba, Bolivia, Turkey and a number of other states have reaffirmed their support for constitutionally elected Maduro as Venezuela's only legitimate president.

Maduro has accused the United States of using aid as a political tool aimed at overthrowing him, and blames U.S. sanctions for the economic turmoil in his country. He "does not want honest negotiations", said Spain's socialist leader, who earlier this month recognised Guaido as interim leader of Venezuela after Maduro rejected pressure to call snap general elections.

Brazil and Colombia are Guaido allies that have been holding humanitarian aid the National Assembly speaker wants to bring into Venezuela.

Roraima state said on Wednesday a Venezuelan man who had suffered a gunshot wound died of multiple organ failure.

An estimated 2.7 million people have fled Venezuela since a devastating political and economic crisis engulfed the country in 2015, according to the UN.

At a Security Council meeting Tuesday, Russian Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia called the weekend attempt by the Venezuelan opposition to carry in aid shipments from Colombia nothing but a "humanitarian show" created by the United States.

Tuesday's emergency Security Council session on Venezuela, requested by Washington, featured a sharp exchange between a U.S. senior official and the Venezuelan foreign minister.

He said Venezuela refused to accept humanitarian aid because it understands that Washington is preparing to topple Maduro.

Venezuela's foreign minister on Wednesday suggested talks between Maduro and U.S. President Donald Trump over the crisis - an idea the Trump administration immediately rejected.

"Action and solidarity should be based on full rejection of dictatorship of Nicolas Maduro in Venezuela", Barbosa told the meeting.

Maduro called Pence a man "who doesn't know world politics" and said the people surrounding Trump and advising him on Venezuelan policies "are bad, and I think that at one point, President Trump will have to say 'stop, stop, we have to see what happens with Venezuela, ' and change his politics".
