US urges Europeans to recognize Venezuela's GuaidoThe United States on Thursday called on European countries to move quickly to recognize Venezuela’s opposition leader Juan Guaido as interim president ahead of a deadline by major EU states. Kimberly Breier, the US assistant secretary of state in charge of Latin America, welcomed a vote Thursday to recognize Guaido by the European Parliament, although the move does not change EU policy. “We certainly encourage all the governments in Europe to support the people of Venezuela and the transitional government in Venezuela by recognizing Guaido as interim president,” Breier told European reporters in a telephone press briefing.
