Romania joins countries that recognize Juan Guaidó as interim president of Venezuela

de Vladimir Ionescu , 11.2.2019

The Presidential Administration announced on Friday that President Klaus Iohannis, “as the head of Romania’s foreign policy decisions and Romania’s representative at the external level, in accordance with the constitutional provisions”, has decided to recognize Mr Juan Guaidó as the interim President of Venezuela.

The announcement comes six days after 12 European states announced their support to the President of the Venezuelan Parliament against President Nicolas Maduro and two days after a similar announcement made by Bulgaria.

The Presidential Administration’s release says:

President Klaus Iohannis believes that especially in the context of our country holding the Presidency of the Council of the European Union and taking into account the increased dynamics of international developments, Romania must have rapid, well-founded and firm responses in the foreign policy files in line with the major foreign policy priorities that the country has been consistently pursuing in the long run.

The Presidential Administration mentions that it had requested, as early as on Monday, February 4, immediately after the informal meeting of foreign ministers of the EU countries (Gymnich type) in Bucharest, the urgent transmission to the Presidential Administration of some assessment elements on this subject and a clear positioning proposal for Romania, including from a political-diplomatic and legal perspective, on the possibility of recognizing Juan Guaidó as the interim President of Venezuela and the legitimacy of his actions and of the National Assembly.

On Friday morning, February 8, the Presidential Administration received the MAE Memorandum on “Romania’s position on the situation in Venezuela”, endorsed by the Prime Minister of Romania. This document, which provided for, among others, the proposal to recognize the President of the National Assembly, Juan Guaidó, as the interim President of Venezuela, was immediately approved by Romania’s President.

Several European states have sent to President Maduro, whose re-election in office is being challenged on the basis of strong election fraud suspicions, an ultimatum to organise again the presidential elections. Following his refusal, France, Germany, Spain, the Netherlands, the UK, Belgium and six other EU states announced Sunday their support to the leader of the Venezuelan opposition. Italy is the only EU country that has publicly announced that it disagrees with interfering with the internal policy of the South American state.

The US, Canada and European allies support the change of Maduro regime. Maduro regime has supporters such as Russia, China and Turkey.
