U.S. military aircraft to deliver more aid to Venezuela border

Pence urges EU to recognise Guaido as Venezuela president

The aid is supposed to be moved into Venezuela on February 23 by supporters of congressional leader Juan Guaido, who is recognized the US and dozens of other countries as Venezuela's legitimate president.

"Maduro is not a Venezuelan patriot, he is a Cuban puppet", Trump added. Most Western countries, including the United States and many of Venezuela's neighbors, have recognized Guaido as the legitimate head of state.

Rubio, who has been an influential voice in advocating US measures against Maduro, noted that about 50 nations have declared Guaido the constitutional president of Venezuela, based on arguments that Maduro's re-election previous year was fraudulent, and consider other government- stacked institutions such as the supreme court to have no legal authority. "Allow the humanitarian aid'".

Rodriguez said the distribution of aid to Colombia is necessary, as the area has 10 percent extreme poverty in a "humanitarian crisis".

At turns conciliatory and combative, Maduro said all Venezuela needs to rebound is for Trump to remove his "infected hand" from the country that sits atop the world's largest petroleum reserves.

Maduro, however, said the aid will not be brought into his nation, and he blames USA economic sanctions for Venezuela's problems.

Vassily Nebenzia told reporters at United Nations headquarters in NY on Thursday that this "would be a very bad development".

Meanwhile, the Pentagon spokesperson told Sputnik on Friday the DoD would soon reveal details on new humanitarian assistance to Venezuela and United States military logistic support for its delivery to the crisis-torn country. "Commercial considerations and related factors will determine the value of trade", India's Ministry of External Affairs spokesman Raveesh Kumar said in response to the Venezuelan officials' comments. He calls it a provocation that may "lead to something much worse than that".

Guaido has said massive amounts of humanitarian aid are needed to save the lives of tens of thousands at risk.

More than two million Venezuelans have fled the country in the last two years, most flooding across the border into Colombia, Brazil and Peru.

The U.S.is supporting opposition leader Juan Guaido (gwy-DOH') as the rightful Venezuelan leader over President Nicolas Maduro.

"I wouldn't be surprised if we see in the next weeks senior military officials declare for Guaido or leave the country", he said. The concert featuring regional and global artists will be Februay 22 - a day before Guaido says the Opposition will try to force emergency food and medicine across the border with the help of caravans.

Guaido repeated his call on Venezuela's military - whose support for Maduro has been crucial in the growing crisis - to stand aside and let the aid pass.

The Trump administration has sanctioned Venezuela's oil chief and key intelligence officials under President Nicolas Maduro, tightening pressure on the embattled leader.

The announcement follows recent sanctions targeting the state-run oil company amid a sweeping move to force Maduro from office and support opposition leader Juan Guaido. Speaking in the presidential battleground state, Trump also sought to draw a contrast with the policies of progressive Democrats, which he brands as "socialist", as he gears up for re-election.
