Venezuela: Guaido seeks talks with United States military

Security forces arrested National Assembly Vice President Edgar Zambrano the No. 2 leader of Venezuela’s opposition-controlled congress

Juan Guaido was speaking at a rally in support of opposition lawmakers who have been arrested, taken refuge at foreign embassies in Caracas, and been threatened in recent days amid a broad crackdown by Nicolas Maduro against congress after the uprising.

Officials of the Intelligence Service of Venezuela (SEBIN) captured on Wednesday Edgar Zambrano, the first vice president of the National Assembly - Venezuela's Parliament - and deputy to Mr Guaido, who has declared himself interim president.

Party head Carlos Prosperi says security forces towed the vehicle away with the lawmaker still inside.

Edgar Zambrano, deputy speaker of the opposition-majority National Assembly, is being held in preventive detention for "the flagrant commission of the crimes of treason, conspiracy and civil rebellion", the Supreme Court said in a statement announcing the verdict of a lower court.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month
Both diseases have grave underlying biological and genetic causes, yet we tend to ignorantly toss around mental health terms. It was emulated after a similar mental health research scholarship launched in 2009 by CMHA Newfoundland and Labrador.


The attempted uprising last week led by Mr Guaido, who is recognised as the rightful head of state by the US, Australia and other Western countries, failed to dislodge Mr Maduro, as have US sanctions against his government. He calls Guaido a "puppet" of the Trump administration and says that the U.S.is supporting a coup to oust him to exploit the country's vast oil wealth.

The U.S. has thrown its support behind Guaido but Maduro remains in the country, vowing he is not going anywhere.

Guaidó said on Twitter that Zombrano had been "kidnapped".

US President Donald Trump has said all options remain on the table.

Trump says North Korea's recent missile launches not breach of trust
Mr Kim declared an end to the testing of nuclear weapons and long-range missiles during rapid rapprochement previous year . North Korea has fired two suspected short-range missiles from the west of the country, according to reports.


In late April, after months of unsuccessful attempts to make Maduro leave, Guaido called for "decisive actions" against the government in what was essentially a coup attempt.

The U.S. Treasury Department imposed sanctions on Moreno and the seven principal members of the court's constitutional chamber in 2017 for rulings that "usurped the authority" of the National Assembly.

"We live in dictatorship", Guaido said.

Guaido invoked the constitution in January to assume an interim presidency, denouncing Maduro as illegitimate after he secured re-election a year ago in a vote widely viewed as fraudulent. The United States used to be the main buyer of Venezuelan abundant oil, while in the last decade the Russian Federation - mostly through Rosneft - invested and increased its participation in extraction fields and commercialization of Venezuelan oil.
