Romania Recognizes Guaido as Venezuela Interim President

Romania Recognizes Guaido as Venezuela Interim President

Friday, 08 February 2019 07:38 AM EST

BUCHAREST, Romania (AP) — Romania's president has officially recognized Juan Guaido as Venezuela's interim president almost a week after other European Union countries recognized him.

President Klaus Iohannis said Friday that Romania had decided to join other EU countries and allies in recognizing Guaido partly because Bucharest currently holds the EU's rotating presidency. Iohannis, in charge of the country's foreign policy, said Romania needed to have "quick, fundamental and firm reactions" to international developments.

Several EU countries, including Spain, Germany Britain and France, had given Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro's government an eight-day deadline to call a new presidential election. The deadline expired Sunday and they recognized Guaido as interim president.

Guaido, who heads the opposition-led National Assembly, declared himself Venezuela's legitimate ruler on Jan. 23. He has the support of Washington and most South American nations.
