Red Cross talks to United States about risks of sending Venezuela aid

Venezuela's National Assembly head and self-proclaimed 'acting president' Juan Guaido said he believes the military is fed up of the regime Foreign Secretary call with Juan Guaido: 30 January 2019

Guaido has won backing from the United States and a dozen Latin American countries to take over the leadership, but Russian Federation and China continue to support Maduro.

Maduro's government resorted to selling off gold about a year ago after falling oil production, economic collapse and mounting USA sanctions hit public income and made it hard for the country to access credit.

"What I want us to do is to put every pressure on Maduro, and I'm urging the European Union foreign ministers to do exactly the same in our meeting this afternoon", Hunt said prior to Thursday's vote.

On Thursday, Marco Rubio, the Florida senator who has helped spearhead the U.S.'s hard-line stance toward the Maduro regime, fired off a tweet calling out the United Arab Emirates' Noor Capital as the financial firm orchestrating the gold transaction with Venezuelan authorities. A United Nations expert on Thurs-day warned that the USA oil sanctions could worsen the humanitarian crisis.

Venezuela's opposition has called on supporters to flood the streets again Saturday in nationwide protests against Maduro, the second such mass action this week.

The 35-year-old president of the National Assembly said he had a 20-month old daughter at home and would be holding FAES accountable for "whatever they do to my baby".

USA officials who have warned Maduro will face "serious consequences" if he harms Guaido denounced the incident as a disgraceful intimidation tactic. "There will be consequences for those engaged in such acts". There was no obvious police presence by the time journalists arrived at Guaido's house.

Under a future government, PDVSA would remain in state hands, Guaido said, adding the top priority would be on recovering production in the devastated oil sector.

Venezuela's interior minister, Nestor Reverol, said on Thurs-day that security forces captured five men including a retired army colonel and other army officers on accusations of plotting a coup.

Reverol said security forces seized two rifles and 500 armbands bearing the letters "OC", which he said stands for "Operation Constitution".

"We are here to provide certainty to the economy, society and in politics", he said. Garcia Palomo was among the captured men.

"The English stole the gold in the Bank of England", Diosdado Cabello, the powerful No. 2 in Maduro's socialist party, said in a speech broadcast on state television this week. Such claims have usually been dismissed as a smokescreen to distract from problems at home, but a drone exploded at a Maduro event a year ago, in an apparent attack. The Trump administration imposed fresh sanctions on the national oil company PDVSA, effectively blocking Maduro from exporting crude to the USA, and granted Guaido control of Venezuelan assets at the Federal Reserve Bank of NY. "The time has come to end the Maduro dictatorship once and for all".
