Turkey reiterated support for the president of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.
Thursday Turkey Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu reiterated support for President Nicolas Maduro, and stated that recognizing the opposition-controlled National Assembly's President Juan Guaido - as the new head of the Venezuelan state - will bring chaos to the Latin American country.
"The United States and some Latin American countries have recently been interfering in the internal affairs of Venezuela. There is an elected president, but the speaker of the parliament has declared himself president and some countries have recognized this. This very strange situation can lead to chaos," Cavasoglu said during an interview with Turkish AHaber TV channel, as reported by UrduPoint News.
"We are against the isolation of countries. The United States is continually interfering in Venezuela's domestic affairs," he declared and reiterated his support for President Maduro.
PCRoberts:”So now Venezuela has 2 presidents. One elected by the people, and one appointed by Washington. How long before Washington does this to Russia, China, Iran, Syria, Turkey, India?”
