The Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaidó, said that in his dispute for power with the president of the Caribbean country, Nicolás Maduro, the diplomatic path is “exhausted” while urging the international community to support the opposition he leads, in the fight with the current chief of the Executive to arrive at the Presidency.

“Today I ask all the representatives of Member States to assume the responsibility of assisting the legitimate Government of Venezuela in its mission to protect the Venezuelan people, and consider a strategy that contemplates scenarios after the diplomatic channel has been exhausted, “said Guaidó in a message transmitted in parallel to the sessions of the UN Assembly.

Ask for international help

“The time has come for timely and decisive action,” he added without offering further details, minutes after Mature made his intervention for Venezuela, according to the agenda set by the organization of the 75th UN General Assembly.

He also asked the UN Secretary General, Antonio Guterres, to mobilize the “political will” of the member countries so that they help “protect the civilian people from the atrocities of a criminal regime“, alluding to the Maduro Administration, which it accuses of violating basic freedoms and does not recognize.

Guaidó, whom fifty countries recognize as interim president of Venezuela, led a negotiating table to the opposition with Nicolas Maduro, which was sponsored by Norway and ended without practical agreements.

The divisions of the opposition

In January 2019, the opposition proclaimed an interim government before thousands of supporters that had the immediate support of the U.S and several countries in the region.

But Guaidó still does not control Armed forces, whose leaders publicly declare their loyalty to Maduro, nor the public institutions of the Caribbean country, which makes it impossible to exercise as “interim president.”

Recently, Guaidó urged the opposition not to appear at the legislative elections on December 6, a decision already supported by 38 political organizations, but which caused him to disagree with the two-time presidential candidate Henrique Capriles, considered a leader among Maduro’s detractors.

Human rights violations

Guaidó also said that the Maduro government, found guilty of violations of fundamental rights by a UN fact-checking mission, should not have a seat in the Human Rights Council.

“It will be in your hands to consider proceeding with your governments to denounce Nicolás Maduro before the International Criminal Court for Crimes against humanity against the civilian population of Venezuela, “he told the members of this council. According to his press team, Guaidó gave this speech to the representatives of 35 countries and the European Union.
