French President Emmanuel Macron announced on Friday January 24 on Twitter that he had received Juan Guaido, President of the Venezuelan National Assembly at the Elysée Palace, recognized as Acting President by fifty countries and who is trying to oust Nicolas Maduro for a year.

Juan Guaido claims the organization of a new presidential election in his country, believing that the 2018 election that allowed President Nicolas Maduro to stay in power has been tainted by "Frauds". He was re-elected president of the unicameral parliament on January 5, but the Chavista government did not recognize the vote. "France supports the rapid organization of a free and transparent presidential election" in Venezuela, abounded on Twitter Emmanuel Macron.

France is one of around fifty countries, including the United States, which recognizes Juan Guaido as interim president of the South American country. Responding on Twitter to Mr. Macron, Jorge Arreaza, Minister for Foreign Affairs of Nicolas Maduro, questioned the French president on the " repression " events that have taken place in recent months in France:

Supported by the United States, part of the international community and the Venezuelan population, Juan Guaido is in Europe asking for help. "Alone, we will not get there", he said Thursday at the World Economic Forum in Davos, saying he is fighting against "International and criminal conglomerate". " We need your help "he added, while his offices in Venezuela were searched on Tuesday.

On Wednesday, he was greeted warmly in Brussels by the leaders of the European Union, who, however, had not announced concrete measures to influence the political process in his country.
