The self-proclaimed US-backed ‘president’ of Venezuela Juan Guaido has claimed he would not rule out the possibility of ‘authorizing’ a foreign military intervention to oust President Nicolas Maduro.
Juan Guaido told AFP he would do “everything that is necessary” in order to “save human lives” – not ruling out the admittedly “controversial subject” of calling on foreign powers, and the United States in particular, to intervene militarily in Venezuela to remove Nicolas Maduro from power.
Chinese President Xi Jinping offered the Prime minister of Greece Alexis Tsipras strong support, saying the two countries should expand cooperation in infrastructure, energy and telecommunications.
Xi told Tsipras that Greece is an important part in China’s new Silk Road strategy.
“At present, China and Greece’s traditional friendship and cooperation continues to glow with new dynamism,” China’s Foreign Ministry cited Xi as saying.
Cooperation in infrastructure, energy and telecommunications should be “deep and solid”, Xi underlined, without revealing details.
