Venezuela's Guaido calls for nationwide protests to allow United States aid to enter

The 250 tons of emergency supplies will begin arriving Saturday to the border city of Cucuta, where tons of boxes of emergency supplies stamped with the US flag are already warehoused waiting for delivery into Venezuela.

In addition to aid arriving in Colombia, Guaido said, more would be coming through Brazil and the Caribbean island of Curacao. Green on Saturday called the allegations "absurd".

Bolton appeared to confirm reports that Venezuelan Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza met in NY with USA special envoy for Venezuela Elliott Abrams, and suggested Maduro should ask himself what they talked about.

An imploding economy has driven an estimated 2.3 million Venezuelans to migrate, while those who remain have been punished by hyperinflation that has put scarce food and medicine out of reach for many. The supplies are piling up in a warehouse near the global bridge of Tienditas.

The concert will last two days and include "the participation of numerous national and worldwide artists in support of Venezuelan democracy", the report said. He dismissed the arriving aid as "crumbs" and "rotten and contaminated food".

The Wiesenthal Center, using the research of assassinated Argentine prosecutor Alberto Nisman, reported that there were 90 Hezbollah sleepers in that country and probably more in Venezuela after former Venezuelan Vice President Tarek El Assaimi granted more than 150 Venezuelan passports to members of Hezbollah "who knew no Spanish", Samuels said.

United States officials claim, however, that Venezuelan generals only support Maduro out of personal interests.

"It is even harder to witness with surprise and sadness some people who are now supporting a foreign military intervention into Venezuela, so that they can achieve their political goals", Lopez said adding that this represents "irresponsible and unforgivable" behavior and deliberately ignoring "tragic and inevitable consequences" of such developments.

Ahead of Trump's speech on Monday, Bolton maintained that the United States is "happy to talk to Maduro or anybody in his former regime to discuss their exit terms from Venezuela". The hard times and a crackdown on dissent have driven nearly 3 million Venezuelans to flee the country.

It is paid for, he said, stressing that Venezuela is not a "beggar" and its economic conditions will improve.

Critics say Maduro's re-election a year ago was fraudulent, making his second term illegal.

He said six million families had benefited from subsidised food boxes and he claimed to have bought 933 tonnes of medicines and medical supplies from China, Cuba and Russian Federation, his main global allies.

The new sanctions also target four high-ranking intelligence officials, including the head of the feared SEBIN intelligence police and an elite commando unit known as FAES that is accused of several targeted killings.

Trump this week repeated his warning to Maduro that "all options" are on the table, including military.

During the Munich Security Conference on Saturday, U.S. Vice President Mike Pence urged European nations to join the United States in recognizing Guaido as Venezuela's interim president.
