The stash included at least 19 rifles and 118 magazines, high-caliber ammunition, as well as 90 radios and six mobile phones - and was likely sent from Miami, Florida on Sunday, authorities believe.

Eleven of the 14 members of the so-called Lima Group, including Argentina, Brazil and Canada, reiterated their support for Guaido as Venezuela's legitimate interim leader and called for free elections.

Maduro did not address the fact that he is no longer Venezuela's head of state following the invocation of Articles 333 and 350 of the Venezuelan constitution to oust him and replace him with interim President Juan Guaidó.

The Foreign Ministry said that on January 26 2019, the European Union, including Bulgaria, called for the urgent holding of free, transparent and fair presidential elections in Venezuela. She also emphasized the temporary nature of the Lima Group's recognition of Guaido as interim president. It also accused Ottawa of siding with U.S. President Donald Trump and American foreign policy.

He said: 'I'm not going to be a traitor, a weak man who turned his back on his historic commitments to his people.

The group reaffirmed its support for Guaido and the opposition-controlled National Assembly, but rejected calls for a foreign military intervention, saying it supported a "peaceful transition".

Emily Thornberry is to distance herself from Jeremy Corbyn over his failure to condemn President Maduro of Venezuela's regime.

It is unclear how the supplies will get into Venezuela without the blessing of President Nicolas Maduro and co-operation of the Venezuelan military, which has remained loyal to the socialist leader and is stationed on the Venezuelan side of the border.

Salih also said it in Iraq's "fundamental interest to develop good relations with our neighbors, including Iran". Syrian schoolchildren walk as US troops patrol near Turkish border in Hasakah, Syria on November 4, 2018.

Maduro broke off diplomatic ties with the United States after Trump recognized Guaido.

They have joined the United States in pushing for a change of regime in Venezuela, which is now seeing an acute shortage of medicines and hyperinflation despite being an oil-rich country.

Guaido's representative to Monday's Ottawa meeting, Orlando Viera-Blanco, said the decision was a key step in freeing his country from its economic and political crisis and putting in on a road toward democracy. "It has a rich experience in the Syrian conflict, in which a great number of parties are involved and where religious issue plays a significant role, so its experience would be a great support", the ambassador said during a roundtable discussion in Moscow on the current political crisis in Venezuela.

In power since former President Hugo Chavez's death in 2013, Maduro has been accused by critics of running the OPEC nation of 30 million people like a dictatorship.

Mr Guaido has called for further protests.

Venezuela's Information Ministry, which handles all media inquiries, did not immediately respond to a request to comment.

Maduro blames Washington and other Western nations for sabotaging Venezuela's economy, including through sanctions.

The demonstrators said peace will only be achieved through dialogue, not by a military coup.
