Venezuela Opposition leader seeks support from China, Russia

News

Venezuela's opposition leader Juan Guaido has asked China and Russia to help end the political crisis crippling the country.

Guaido's diplomatic representative Teresa Belandria informed the same while presenting the opposition's economic plan to Brazilian and Venezuelan investors in Sao Paulo yesterday.

Oil-rich Venezuela's economy is crumbling amid a political standoff between leftist President Nicolas Maduro and Juan Guaido.

Mr. Guaido is the national assembly speaker and is widely recognized as the country's legitimate leader. Ms. Belandria expected that the talks will bear positive fruits for the restoration of democracy.

She said that opposition parties had agreed to re-elect Guaido in January 2020 as a National Assembly leader. (AIR NEWS)
