Foreign Minister Maas on Venezuela

06.03.2019 - Press release

Foreign Minister Maas issued the following statement today (6 March) on the situation in Venezuela:

We have noted the decision to declare Ambassador Kriener “persona non grata”. This is an incomprehensible decision which further aggravates the situation and will not help to ease tensions. I have decided to recall our Ambassador for consultations.

Our, Europe’s support for Juan Guaidó remains firm. Ambassador Kriener has done excellent work in Caracas, especially during the last few days.
