The first batch of humanitarian aid for Venezuela from the United States arrived in the Colombian city of Cucuta, the State Department’s Twitter said .
“The United States is proud to announce the arrival in Colombia of the first batch of relief items for Venezuelans. We will continue to work with [the head of the National Assembly], Juan Guaiido, and partners to deliver humanitarian aid to Venezuelans in need, ”the post said.
American National Security Advisor to the President, John Bolton, announced the delivery of humanitarian aid to Venezuela on February 2 – we are talking about medicines and food additives. Earlier, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo promised that the United States would send more than $ 20 million to humanitarian aid. On 3 February, Colombian President Ivan Duque announced that the country would organize three humanitarian aid collection points for Venezuela.
With such a request to the United States turned Guayido, who proclaimed himself the interim president of the country instead of Nicolas Maduro. The United States, like most countries in Latin America and Europe, supports Guaido and, in particular, will transfer to it the state assets of Venezuela, which are under US jurisdiction. Russia considers the legitimate president of Nicolas Maduro.
