Trump Administration is reportedly holding secret talks with Venezuelan Military

Venezuela's opposition is vowing to deliver the aid to the South American country, but no timeline has been released.

He accused the Trump administration of trying to violate national sovereignty by co-ordinating the shipment of hundreds of tonnes of medicines, medical equipment and nutritional supplements.

The nation is "not suffering the humanitarian crisis fabricated by Washington over the last four years to justify intervening in our country", Maduro added. His press conference in Caracas was twice interrupted by power cuts, which have become common in the capital.

At the request of Interim President Juan Guaidó, the United States is immediately pre-positioning emergency supplies in Colombia to provide relief to Venezuelans coping with severe food and medicine shortages.

"The President's decision was taken following careful analysis, including political, diplomatic and legal perspectives, taking into account the fact that the majority of European Union states and a series of allies and euro-Atlantic partners have recognized the legitimacy of Interim President Juan Guaido", Romania's presidency said in a statement.

The aid seems unlikely to move into Venezuela.

"Venezuela keeps going!" Maduro said at a recent pro-government rally. An outspoken Maduro critic, Palomo has openly spoken of amassing a military force in exile to remove the Venezuelan leader from power.

Guaido has called for the demonstrations to continue in the country in a bid to ramp up pressure on Maduro.

Long-time allies Russian Federation and China and several other countries continue to support Maduro.

The full trade, first outlined by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski , kept coming clearer as supporting reports trickled in. The Pistons and Bucks are reportedly "finalising" the trade ahead of Thursday's (Friday AEDT) deadline.

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.

Venezuela is in the midst of a power struggle following the National Assembly's declaration that Maduro is an usurper, and several countries - including the US - now recognize opposition leader Juan Guaido as the nation's legitimate president.

After Washington recognised self-proclaimed interim President Juan Guaido as the legitimate head of Venezuela, the US Treasury blocked all the assets of the Venezuelan state-owned oil company PDVSA and imposed a ban on making deals with it.

Guaido said Thursday he was confident his efforts to bring humanitarian aid into the country would work out.

"I am sure that Moscow and Beijing know the situation in Venezuela really well: Maduro doesn't have the popular support and he can't stabilise the economy, which produced the world's largest inflation of two million percent".

Scott noted Cuba had sent military troops to Venezuela to defend Maduro.

"You're deaf to the reality of a revolution with 20 years of democratic patrimony; you only follow the script written by the extreme right", he said.

It also told the socialist leader to "restore full democracy, the rule of law, the separation of powers and respect for the constitutional mandate of the country's institutions, particularly the democratically elected National Assembly".

The opposition-controlled legislature has been powerless since 2016 after it was stripped of its powers by the Supreme Court, made up of regime loyalists.
