Argentina quits Lima Group, saying its work has ‘led to nothing’

Detailing its position on Wednesday, Argentina’s government said it agreed with the group’s mission statement but not the 2019 acceptance of Guaidó and his interim government as a member of the bloc. Buenos Aires said it opposed the “participation of a sector of the Venezuelan opposition as one more member of the Lima Group,” which it claimed had led to the group adopting positions Argentina could not support.

Pence stellte in Bogotá ebenfalls die wenig engagierte Haltung der venezolanischen Millionäre in Frage, die im Ausland leben. „Man erwartete einen entscheideren Beitrag an Geld, um die Polizei, Militärs und Politiker im Umfeld von Guaidó zu finanzieren. Auch das ist bis jetzt nicht geschehen.“

Pence to meet Venezuela’s Guaido at Lima Group gathering seeking to sanction & isolate Maduro

US Vice President Mike Pence is planning a face-to-face meeting with the self-proclaimed Venezuelan ‚interim president‘ at the Lima Group summit, which will examine ways to put additional pressure on the Maduro government.

After security forces maintained loyalty to the Maduro government and blocked convoys of USAID supplies –intended for the opposition– from entering Venezuela on Saturday, US-backed “interim president” Juan Guaido vowed to attend the Lima Group summit, apparently to discuss a course of further action with the countries that have supported his claim to power.

Venezuela Confronts US-backed Right-wing Coup

The United States and its right-wing allies in Latin America have come out in support of a parliamentary right-wing coup against the Venezuelan government of socialist President Nicolas Maduro after they supported a decision by opposition lawmaker, named Juan Guaido, to declare himself an “interim president” of Venezuela on Jan. 23 in violation of the country’s constitution.

Washington, Canada and members of the so-called Lima Group, which include Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, Peru, Paraguay, and others were quick to recognize Guaido as “interim president” with the government of Donald Trump and his advisors urging the country’s military to step in and rebel against Maduro. The military has repeatedly stated its full support for the Maduro government and rejected such calls as interventionist and a breach of the sovereignty of Venezuela.

Mexico urges regional bloc not to meddle in Venezuela

Mexico on Friday called on its peers to refrain from interfering in Venezuela’s internal affairs, declining to back a regional declaration that urged Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro not to take office on Jan. 10, Reuters reports.

Mexico was the sole country in the 14-member Lima Group that opted not to sign a statement critical of Maduro, the first time Mexico has not backed a declaration by the group since it was created in 2017 to push for democratic reforms in Venezuela.
