Venezuela’ opposition Guaido working to restore diplomatic ties with Israel

Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido has said on Tuesday that he is working on to restore diplomatic ties with Israel which Caracas had cut off one decade ago in solidarity with the Palestinians.

Israel is considered among all those countries aligned with the United States that has rallied in order to support Guaido, who declared himself as the interim president of Venezuela last month struggling to gain power from the legitimate country’s president Nicolas Maduro, to step up pressure on Maduro to resign as reportedly believed that under Maduro’s presidency the country has sunk into poverty and facing political and humanitarian crisis. Though, Maduro denied all accusations levelled against him.

According to Reuters news reports, in an interview, Guaido told the mass-circulation Israel Hayom: “I am very happy to report that the process of stabilizing relations with Israel is at its height.”

Guaido said a formal announcement regarding reestablishment of diplomatic ties and relations, and opening a new Venezuelan embassy in Israel would soon come “at the proper time”.

In the interview, Guiado said, “This (Jewish) community is very active and prosperous, one which has contributed greatly to our society.”

Hugo Chavez, Maduro’s predecessor, has despised Israel at the time of 2008-2009 war in Gaza and cut off ties with the Palestinian, even with Israel ’s arch-foe Iran.
