Opposition leader Juan Guaidó, the leader of the Venezuelan legislature, declared himself interim president and called for fair elections in response to the turmoil caused by Maduro's socialist government.

Maduro has thus far used the military to block the aid from entering Venezuela, denying that the country is suffering a humanitarian crisis and saying the delivery of the shipments would be a prelude to a US-led military intervention.

Major European countries have joined the United States in backing Guaido but they have stopped short of the sweeping oil sanctions and financial measures that Washington has imposed.

In Venezuela survival is now a matter of politics.

"The scheme for Venezuela is more or less similar to what they did to Libya in order to seize its natural resources", Maduro noted.

Scott noted Cuba had sent military troops to Venezuela to defend Maduro.

According to reports, trucks carrying food and medicine from the USA are now parked near the Tienditas Bridge. "Humanitarian aid now. United public outcry". "We have recently revealed a conspiracy to stage a coup, funded and supported from Colombia", he noted.

In the letter, Maduro denounces US President Donald Trump's aggressive statements against him - in which he has branded Maduro an illegitimate dictator, as well as hinting at military intervention.

Bringing in aid is central to the National Assembly president's challenge to Maduro's authority, as are street protests, the next of which will take place on Wednesday.

Venezuela's Constituent Assembly was established by Maduro in 2017 to replace the country's opposition-controlled National Assembly.

"I think it is better for the transition to democracy in Venezuela that he be outside the country", Abrams said.

He blamed shortages of food and medicine on U.S. sanctions, which mostly target regime individuals as well as state oil company PDVSA.

Under Maduro's stewardship, oil-rich Venezuela's economy has collapsed leaving the country wracked by hyperinflation, recession and shortages of basic necessities such as food and medicine.

"This is a macabre game: we squeeze them by the neck and make them ask for crumbs".

"It depends on what they're offering", Farnsworth said.

'I want to see how many military officers are willing to commit crimes against humanity by not allowing the lives of the most vulnerable to be saved, 250,000 to 300,000 are at risk of dying if they do not receive immediate attention, ' Guaido told the university students.

He told the cheering crowd: 'We will keep going until we achieve our objective'.

Mr Pouyanne continued: "We chose to evacuate all of our personnel from Venezuela given the current situation" adding that the evacuation process had begun more than a week ago. So did the Lima Group countries (excluding Mexico), the Organization of American States, and a number of other countries. He argues Maduro was re-elected previous year in a sham election.

"You're deaf to the reality of a revolution with 20 years of democratic patrimony; you only follow the script written by the extreme right", he said.

Maduro, who last weekend rejected an European Union ultimatum to organize snap presidential elections, said he would welcome the mission.
