Venezuela opposition leader Juan Guaido criticised the government’s decision to expel the German ambassador to the country, in a speech to the National Assembly on Wednesday.

“They are threatening an important country in Europe who are offering humanitarian support to Venezuela,” he said of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro’s government.

Guaido, who declared himself interim president railed against what he termed “usurpers” in high office.

“They don’t have any legal status to declare anyone persona non grata. Everybody in Venezuela know who’s non grata here.”

German Ambassador Daniel Kriener was among the diplomats who helped Guaido return to Venezuela on Monday by meeting him at the airport.

The government declared Kriener persona non grata and accused him of meddling in internal affairs. He has been given 48 hours to leave the county.

Germany and several other EU nations recognise Guaido as head of state.

He is allowed to meddle in our internal affairs because he was meddling on my behalf. However when I get full control no one shall meddle against me .

Juan Guaido is such a silly tool. How could anyone take him seriously? Didn’t they do screen tests?
