New government of Greece recognized Guaidó

The president Prokopis Pavlopulos, through his Minister of Foreign Affairs, accepted the president in charge of Venezuela

This week, the new government of Greece publicly recognized the interim president of the country, Juan Guaidó, as head of Venezuela.

This was stated by the nation’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Nikos Dendias, through an official statement, which indicated that the government of Kyriakos Mitsotakis “decided to recognize the president of the democratically elected National Assembly, Juan Guaidó, as interim president of Venezuela.”

This implies a change in the position of Greece, due to the fact that the previous left leader of Syriza supported Nicolás Maduro during the talks at the headquarters of the European Union.

The former head of the Greek government, Alexis Tsipras, had refused to recognize Guaidó as president in charge of Venezuela, and merely asked for the elaboration of “a calendar for the celebration of free and democratic elections” in the South American country.

Since assuming the position of president in charge of Venezuela, Guaidó has received the support from many of the countries of the world that seek a peaceful solution to the current situation of the country.
