We are working closely with EU partners, regional organisations such as the Lima Group and like-minded international partners to ensure a peaceful resolution to the current crisis and a return to democracy. We urge all Venezuelans to recognise Juan Guaido as the constitutional interim President of Venezuela until new presidential elections that are free and in accordance with international democratic standards are held.

On 30 January, the Foreign Secretary spoke with Mr Guaido. Our Ambassador in Caracas, together with other EU Ambassadors, met Mr Guaido on 26 January.
