  • Venezuela President Maduro sworn in for second term

Hundreds of officials gathered inside the court's chambers cheered Maduro.

"Some of [the supporters] were there because they truly supported President Maduro", Zuniga tells NPR's Audie Cornish.

Han said that China and Venezuela are good friends with mutual trust and assistance as well as good partners with win-win cooperation.

National Security Adviser John Bolton said on Thursday the United States will not recognize the "illegitimate" inauguration.

"It is time for Venezuela to begin a transitional process that can restore the constitutional, democratic order by holding free and fair elections", Pompeo said.

"According to a U.S. intelligence official who spoke on condition of anonymity to freely discuss sensitive issues, Maduro's defense minister, Vladimir Padrino López, told the president last month to resign or accept his resignation, threat that has not yet executed, "the newspaper reported in an article where it indicates that the Venezuelan crisis is sharpened from one day to another". Previous year the U.S.

Minutes after Maduro was sworn in, Paraguayan President Mario Abdo tweeted that he was cutting diplomatic ties with Venezuela and immediately withdrawing his country's diplomats from Caracas. He accuses foreign governments including Latin American nations of seeking to overthrow him.

Maduro has managed to retain allies in Latin America, despite global outcry.

Many other countries in Europe and Latin America snubbed Maduro's inauguration ceremony, but the socialist presidents of Cuba and Bolivia, Miguel Diaz-Canel and Evo Morales, showed up to support him.

In May, he declared victory in presidential election that his political opponents and many foreign nations consider illegitimate because popular opponents were banned from running and the largest anti-government parties boycotted the race.

The ceremony contrasted with the harsh realities that face the former bus driver turned socialist leader, including hyperinflation, severe food and medicine shortages and an exodus of millions of citizens. Most head to Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Brazil.

Maduro has meanwhile threatened "diplomatic measures" against his regional detractors if they refuse to recognise his re-election.

In a statement issued on behalf of the European Union, the bloc's diplomatic chief Federica Mogherini said the result of May's elections "lacked any credibility" and condemned Maduro for ignoring global calls for new polls.

"While the frozen assets stolen from a country's treasury would under normal circumstances be returned to that country, the kleptocratic nature of the Venezuelan regime makes it impossible to ensure that the funds would go to the benefit of the Venezuelan public", the report says.

A wave of protests driven by the opposition swept the country in 2017, Zuniga says.

"That's the rallying cry of our revolution to the peoples and governments of the world".
