The Government of Japan reaffirmed on Tuesday its recognition of Juan Guaidó as the President in charge of Venezuela and the National Assembly.
It also expressed its concern for the acts against democracy registered in the recent days in Venezuela.
“We are concerned about the obstruction of access to the Assembly for the President of this body and other delegates,” the Japanese Foreign Ministry said.
It also said that “the progressive deterioration of the political, economic and social situation in Venezuela, as well as the humanitarian crisis unleashed by emigration from this country, is worrying.”
Finally, the Japanese government highlighted its “continued support to the Venezuelan people.”
