Venezuela breaks diplomatic relations with Columbia. The Acting President of Venezuela Nicolas Maduro stated this, as Reuters reports.

“Patience is exhausted, I can’t bare it anymore, we can’t keep putting up with Colombian territory being used for attacks against Venezuela. For that reason, I have decided to break all political and diplomatic relations with Columbia’s fascist government,” Maduro said.

It is emphasized, that the reason for breaking relations with Colombia is after Colombia assisted the opposition’s efforts to bring humanitarian aid into the country. According to Maduro, the ambassador and consular staff would have to leave Venezuela within 24 hours.

As we reported earlier, January 23, Juan Guaido, the opposition leader and the head of the National Assembly of Venezuela declared himself interim president of Venezuela and took the oath before thousands of opposition supporters at a mass protest rally.
