"Venezuela is not tied to Europe".

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.

Maduro has received backing from China, Russia, Syria and Turkey, as well as longtime allies Cuba and Bolivia.

On Friday, he held a news conference in a Caracas plaza announced hours in advance on social media, and on Sunday he attended a church service for victims of anti-government unrest.

"All that is happening is linked to America".

Further fueling concerns that the Trump administration is considering military action, Sen.

Republican Senator Marco Rubio of Florida publicly welcomed the decision, and praised the administration of U.S. President Donald Trump for taking action.

Super Blood Wolf Moon - What is it?
The Virtual Telescope Project shared a live stream of the lunar eclipse at its brightest above the skyline of Rome. Lunar eclipses can occur only during a full moon, and this one was extra special because it was also a supermoon.

"Where do you get that you have the power to establish a deadline or an ultimatum to a sovereign people?" said Venezuelan Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza.

In a press conferences, Guaido urged his followers to stage another mass protest next week, while Maduro pushed his call for dialogue.

Guaido, the 35-year-old leader of Venezuela's opposition-controlled congress, has won wide global support and has offered amnesty to soldiers who join him.

This weekend, Guaido's supporters maintained a united front from NY and Brussels to the streets of Caracas, and the country's military attache in Washington declared allegiance to the newcomer.

He said the constitution did not allow the military "to attack our equals, our brothers".

The Turkish people will see that we will finally win.

The "State of the Union" episode also featured author Jerome Corsi, who said that information about him in last week's indictment of Roger Stone was "accurate" and said that he would "affirm that if asked to in court".

British PM Theresa May should opt for no-deal Brexit: Nile Gardiner
And we both recognise that Mr Corbyn is about the worst possible person to lead the Labour party - him much more so. However, it only takes seven MPs from the Conservatives or DUP to vote against the government for Mrs May to lose.

Maduro noted the diplomatic staff of the U.S. Embassy in Caracas had left his country, however, the both sides agreed to continue negotiations for the protection of officials in the two countries.

Even though the Venezuelan military has shown no sign of abandoning Maduro, Bolton said: "Our assessment based on numerous contacts on the ground is that the rank and file of the Venezuelan military is acutely aware of the desperate economic conditions in the country and we think they look for ways to support the National Assembly government". With Venezuelan allies China and Russian Federation holding veto power, there was little chance the United Nations body would agree to take action.

Carlos Luna, a professor of worldwide relations at the Central University of Venezuela in Caracas, said Maduro's decision to allow interest sections represents a "loss in power". "The intention of the United States is to orchestrate a coup d'etat", said Russia's UN ambassador Vassily Nebenzia. Moscow warns against interfering in the Venezuelan settlement, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Monday, stressing that this position is Russia's key assistance that it can provide now to Caracas.

The Venezuelan leader earlier gave U.S. diplomats until late Saturday to leave the country.

Washington said it was ignoring the order as it no longer considered Maduro the president - but withdrew non-essential staff and argued that Maduro still bore responsibility for diplomats' safety.

It follows similar declarations by the US, Britain, Germany and France.
