“Juan Guaido calls for international sanctions against his own country”


Juan Guaido, self-proclaimed President of Venezuela, was conspired at Caracas Airport on his return from his world tour, where he even appeared alongside Donald Trump during his State of the Union address. Deciphering of Maurice Lemoine, journalist and former editor-in-chief of Le Monde Diplomatique, for World Disorder.

The self-proclaimed President of Venezuela, Juan Guaido, returns from a world tour that saw him take selfies with Justin Trudeau in Ottawa, and then be in the audience during the state of the Union address by Donald Trump. The latter cited Venezuela as an example of the failure of socialism, despite the fact that the country is also under American sanctions. Guaido’s goal would be to push other countries to oust President Nicolas Maduro. But is the piece already performed and is Guaido the last to know?

Meanwhile, Juan Guaido returned to Caracas under the boos of the crowd. Maurice Lemoine, journalist and former editor-in-chief of Le Monde Diplomatique, explains his stormy reception when he returned to Caracas:

“He calls for international sanctions against his own country. He almost calls for military intervention against his own country. In any country in the world, it would be considered high treason. In France, there is article 411-4 of the Penal Code, it’s 30 years of incarceration. “

Lemoine explains that Guaido lost the little power he enjoyed on January 23, no longer being President of the National Assembly since that date:

“The anti-Guaido opposition, the right and the Chavists brought Guaido to the National Assembly.”

Why was Guaido received by President Emmanuel Macron at the Élysée? The former editor-in-chief of Le Monde Diplomatique has his idea on the question:

“From my point of view, it is for two reasons. One, to follow the United States. Unfortunately this is the bad habit of the French government, including the countries of the European Union. Above all, France was one of the first countries (along with Spain) to recognize Guaido as President. And so it’s not to appear irresponsible. ”

Lemoine specifies that his reception at the Élysée “Was done on the sly” and that there is no official press release or official photo on the steps of the Élysée Palace. The journalist talks about Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s attempt to help Venezuela get out of the current crisis, which angered Trump:

“Trudeau had suggested to Guaido that if he wanted to get out of the crisis, Cuba should be used as a mediator. And Trudeau was beaten on the fingers two days later by Donald Trump. He said, “No way, Cuba is part of the problem.”
