Venezuelan self-proclaimed interim president Juan Guaido , the opposition leader, has issued his “presidential” decree number 001, under which it is said that it authorizes the deliveries of the humanitarian aid into Venezuela.
According to Sputnik news reports, the decree which was published on the opposition leader’s twitter on Thursday stated: “As the commander-in-chief of the Bolivarian National Armed Forces, I am confirming the decision allowing humanitarian aid enter the territory of Venezuela. Thus, I am ordering various elements of these forces to act in line with this instruction.”
The Venezuelan parliament which was led by Guaido and controlled by the opposition has on Tuesday authorized the international humanitarian aid supplies to the nation. The cargo is likely to reach Venezuela on Sat.
However, the elected president Nicolas Maduro’s government has been opposing the supplies of aid into the country, stating that they might justify the foreign intervention in the nation.
Guaido will personally accompany the convoy of “humanitarian aid” that is now stockpiled in Columbian border as it used to make its way through the border to Venezuela, according to Reuters news reports.
In the meantime, the United States national security advisor John Bolton said Venezuela military should let “peaceful civilians at the Colombian and Brazilian borders” to “peacefully bring in humanitarian aid”, cautioning that any infractions “will not be forgotten”.
