The Venezuelan government has recently assumed that the President of the National Assembly, Juan Guaidó, will seek refuge in an embassy like his party partner Leopoldo López. in his case in France, as suggested by Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza this Thursday.
The first suspicion was raised on Monday by President Nicolás Maduro, who denounced the sanctions imposed by the United States and the “complicity” of the “refugee before the judiciary hidden in an embassy”. He did not refer directly to Guaidó, although he used terms with which he normally referred to him.
The head of the National Assembly, recognized as Venezuela’s legitimate president for fifty countries, replied on Twitter, saying that “the dictator must consume what he does.” “I am where I am, with people … they are lying to you,” he wrote.
The suspicion of the regime has emerged again this Thursday in a veiled manner and through the mouth of Arreaza. During an interview, he asked countries that “accept refugees from the Venezuelan judiciary” to “correct” and transmit them, with direct messages to Spain, who welcomes López, and to France.
