Sweden supports opposition leader Juan Guaidó and looks at him as Venezuela’s legitimate interim president, says Sweden’s Foreign Minister Margot Wallström.
– In this situation, we support and consider Guaidó as a legitimate interim president, says Wallström to Sveriges Radio.
A number of EU countries are expected to announce, on Monday, Guaidó after President Nicolás Maduro has rejected European elections for elections in Venezuela.
The EU Parliament, the US and a number of other countries have also recognized Guaidó as the country’s leader. However, it is still President Nicolás Maduro who is actually in power in Venezuela.
