CARICOM countries have called for the non-interference in the internal affairs of Venezuela where the

Opposition leader Juan Guaido has proclaimed himself as interim president.

He has had the backing of several countries, most notably the United States and Canada.

  1. The Caribbean position of non-interference in the affairs of another nation is a principled stand. Like it or not, Moduro is the elected President of Venezuela.

  2. Getting oil from the middle East has become very problematic. Venezuela is closer. Beware Venezuelans of those willing to stabilize your country to get at your oil. They come in wolves clothing or blatant racism. Can Venezuela openly support the opposition in those ‘ demomocratic’ countries? Its called interferance. Be very careful opposition leader.

  3. An where is Antonio Guterres & the UN to enlighten us on how much internationally donated funds the Antiguan government received for Barbuda?.
