EU to meet on Venezuela Thursday

Tehran, Jan 31, IRNA - French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said on Wednesday that EU foreign minister will convene on Thursday in Bucharest to discuss situation in Venezuela.

EU foreign ministers would meet in Bucharest on Thursday to consider their next step, Le Drian told France's National Assembly.

Earlier, Britain, Spain, France and Germany have warned Nicolas Maduro if he did not hold election within eight days, they will recognize Juan Guido as the country’s president.

Maduro has said that if they want elections, they should wait until 2025.

Venezuela has been the scene of unrests as of January 23 when Guaido sworn in himself a Venezuelan president.

In a meddling move, the US recognized him as legal president of the country and rejected Maduro’s government as illegal.

Certain countries including Argentina, Brazil and Colombia followed the suit and called for a transparent election.
However, other countries including Iran, Russia, Bolivia, Cuba, Nicaragua and Turkey threw full weight behind Maduro, describing Guaido’s move as a coup against the country’s legal government.
