Guatemala’s President breaks relationships with Maduro regime

The President of Guatemala, Alejandro Giammattei, made the announcement this Thursday, January 16th after leaving a meeting at the National Palace of Culture. A delegation of Juan Guaido was present during his inauguration.


Only two days after his inauguration, Guatemala’s President, Alejandro Giammattei, announced himself that he was severing diplomatic ties with the Nicolas Maduro regime and shutting down his embassy before Caracas.

Giammatei went a step further, saying he had discussed implementing the Inter-American Treaty of Reciprocal Assistance in Venezuela’s case with Luis Almagro, the Secretary-General of the Organization of American States and one of Maduro’s fiercest critics in the region. Wednesday, Maduro called Almagro “basura” (trash).

“We have instructed our foreign minister (Pedro Brolo) so that the one official remaining in our embassy in Venezuela can return and we will break relationships with the government of Venezuela. We are shutting down that embassy”, Giammatei said Thursday.

The acting government of Juan Guaido, however, was present during the ceremony, through a special delegation which included lawmakers Winston Flores, Luis Florido, Tomas Guanipa and Jesus Yanes.
