BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:30 A.M.) – The Venezuelan Ambassador to Iraq Jonathan Velasco Ramirez said on Sunday morning that he recognizes opposition leader Juan Guaido as the President of Venezuela.

“Our only place is on the side of the people, the constitution, and the National Assembly. Engineer Juan Guaido has the constitutional right and obligation to undertake the responsibilities of the head of the [Bolivarian] Republic [of Venezuela],” Ramirez began.

“Mister Guaido, you are on the right side — that of the history, the people, and the constitution. [Venezuelan President Nicolas] Maduro and his clan of usurpers have crossed the line,” Ramirez said in a video address, which Nacional media outlet released.

Ramirez has joined a number of other politicians that have announced their backing of Guaido, including the recently defected air force commander.

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
