The Russian foreign minister has slammed as destructive the U-S policy toward Venezuela. Sergei Lavrov said Washington’s conduct is inadmissible and undermines the principle of the United Nations’ Charter. Moscow earlier offered to mediate between the government and opposition in Venezuela. Iran’s foreign minister also expressed Tehran’s support for the Venezuelan government. In a telephone call to his Venezuelan counterpart, Mohammad Javad Zarif discussed ways to confront what the two called the US plots in Venezuela. Meanwhile, Spain said the European Union has warned that Brussels will not recognize Nicolas Maduro as the president if no elections are held.
