BATTLE FOR WORLD / REUTERS | April 6, 2019: The article highlights that the country of Switzerland and the United States have signed an agreement on Friday (April 5) for the neutral country to represent U.S. interests in Venezuela, which broke off diplomatic relations with Washington [DC] after it recognised the opposition leader Juan Guaido as president.
The agreement signed by the Foreign Minister of Switzerland and the U.S. ambassador to Switzerland in Berne, should help defuse tensions between the United States and Venezuela, the Swiss government said, but that first Venezuela must agree to let Switzerland take on the role.
The Swiss government said: “The mandate provides Switzerland the opportunity to contribute to de-escalating tensions between the two countries and thus play a constructive role on behalf of regional stability,” and noted that such stability would also be in the interest of the neighbouring countries in the region.
The United States and dozens of other countries stand at odds with the government of Venezuela’s Nicolas Maduro, after the US and allies recognised self-proclaimed opposition leader Juan Guaido as the legitimate president of Venezuela.
What appears to unfold after is a form of hybrid-warfare attacking the country’s infrastructure so that the people in the country can turn against Maduro.
