Nicolas Maduro has not called Presidential elections within 8 day limit we have set. So UK alongside European allies now recognises @jguaido as interim constitutional president until credible elections can be held. Let’s hope this takes us closer to ending humanitarian crisis

The United Kingdom has joined the US is condemning Maduro and accepting Guaidó as the new president. After Maduro refused to declare a new election the UK released the official statement and it was announced by their Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt.
