U.S. Government Representative for Venezuela Elliott Abrams said at a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing that the recognition of Juan Guaidó, the president in charge of Venezuela, will not change even after the electoral farce that Maduro’s dictatorship is trying to impose.
“The corrupt elections will not change the state of Guaidó,” Abrams said during an interpellation of Democratic and Republican senators.
“We will continue to recognize Juan Guaidó after January 2021 and we are sure that 60 countries will do the same. With Maduro we are ready to talk about his departure. If he wants to stay in Venezuela or leave, but there is no way we will talk to him about staying in power,” he said.
