Venezuela crisis: Maduro rejects UK and EU ultimatum as military envoy to US defects to opposition

Venezuela crisis: Maduro rejects UK and EU ultimatum as military envoy to US defects to oppositionVenezuela has dismissed a demand from UK and EU leaders for the country to hold a new presidential election within a week, after opposition leader Juan Guaido declared himself interim president following a disputed vote last year. The leaders of France and Britain joined Spain and Germany on Saturday to say they would recognise Mr Guadio as president, unless Nicolas Maduro’s government called a fresh vote in the next eight days. “Europe is giving us eight days?” Jorge Arreaza, Venezuela’s foreign minister, said in response.
