Fraught diplomatic relations between Venezuela and Spain

VENEZUELA urged Spain to withdraw recognition of Juan Guaido and admit 
that it had acted rashly.

Juan Guaido, president of Venezuela’s National Assembly was recognised
as the country’s president by the US, Canada and most of Western
Europe, including Spain earlier this year.

Speaking from Venezuela’s embassy in Madrid, ambassador Mario Isea
condemned the absence of any “official indication” of modification by
Pedro Sanchez’s government.

“The decision was based on incorrect information,” maintained Isea,
who lamented that countries like Spain could issue an ultimatum
ordering “a democratic government” to hold elections.

The ambassador then suggested future changes in diplomatic relations
arising from the composition of Spain’s new parliament.
