US Warns Venezuela of 'Significant Response'

Last week, the Trump administration allegedly requested that Israel publicly endorse the U.S.'s efforts to force Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro to resign and to back Guaido as the interim president.

Soldiers are seen at a military headquarter as opposition supporters (not pictured) give out copies of amnesty measures to anyone in the military who disavows President Nicolas Maduro, in Caracas, Venezuela, Jan. 27, 2019.

Maduro's assertion was based on reports that Vice President Mike Pence had promised to support Guaidó only days before the opposition leader declared himself to be in charge of the country.

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan voiced his support for Maduro in a phone call on Thursday.

Graham, who has counseled Trump on the government shutdown and other matters, said Trump asked him: 'What do you think about using military force?,' Axios reported.

EU powers shifted toward the US position Saturday with envoys of the United Kingdom and Germany saying the European Union would recognize Guaido as interim president unless a new election is called within eight days.

Mr Maduro, who has led the oil-rich nation since 2013 and has the support of the armed forces, has refused to stand down and rejected an global ultimatum to call elections within eight days. "I can't tell you anything", Peskov noted.

Spain, France, Germany, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands said on January 26 that they would recognize Guaido as Venezuela's interim president unless Maduro called elections in eight days.

"They should withdraw this ultimatum".

Maduro appeared at a military exercise in the state of Carabobo where he called for "union, discipline and cohesion" to defeat what he called an "attempted coup d'etat".

Maduro called Pompeo "a warlord" who speaks with "a lot of despair and hate" in an interview with CNN-Turk on Saturday after the USA secretary spoke.

United States energy firms last week increased the number of rigs looking for new oil for the first time since late December to 862, Baker Hughes energy services firm said in its weekly report on Friday.

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro on Sunday vowed that they "will finally win" and his country would survive the "coup attempt".

The deepening crisis comes as Pope Francis called for a "just and peaceful solution" to Venezuela's political crisis as he wrapped up a visit to Panama for a World Youth Day rally.

The first major military officer to publicly switch his support to Guaido was Venezuela's military attache in Washington, Army Colonel Jose Luis Silva.

Some 29 people have been killed and more than 350 people have been detained in clashes this week between anti-Maduro activists and security forces.

"He belittled the whole world and as a Latin American, I can say that he hates us".

Both Russia and China are major creditors of Venezuela.

"We expect USA crude oil prices to range between $50-$60 per barrel in 2019 and about $10 more per barrel for Brent", Tortoise Capital Advisors said in its 2019 oil market outlook.
