I am a soldier of Maduro: Maradona

Latin American foreign ministers said Tuesday that they would refuse to recognize any decision taken by Venezuela's new constitutional assembly in which President Nicolas Maduro has placed all his hopes of retaining power. He was a staunch backer and friend of now-deceased presidents Hugo Chavez of Venezuela and Fidel Castro of Cuba.

They added to previous USA sanctions on Maduro himself-a rare step against a sitting head of state-imposed just before the assembly was elected on July 30 in a vote marred by violence, fraud allegations, and an opposition boycott.

Greece, whose ruling, far-left party Syriza has supported Venezuela's government in the past, has yet to make public its position.

In an earlier message on Twitter, Arreaza said that CELAC was a zone of peace where Latin American representatives respect the principles of worldwide law. "Venezuela can't be sanctioned for anything, nor by anybody". Her warning follows statements by the opposition that any global accords signed by the new constitutional assembly will not be recognised if it comes to power.

According to Reuters, the United Nations human rights office called on the government of President Nicolas Maduro to rein in security forces and investigate alleged abuses, release people arbitrarily detained, and ensure the protection of the ousted Attorney-General Luisa Ortega.

The Supreme Court fired Mayor Ramon Muchacho of Chacao, Caracas' richest district, on Tuesday.

Delegates to the constitutional assembly on Tuesday were filing into the stately domed chamber where congress normally meets — and did as recently as Monday.

It has vowed to remain in operation for up to two years - beyond the scheduled end of Maduro's term in 2019.

He now ranks first in sand saves and putting on the PGA Tour , and he plays well at this course, where he finished fourth in 2016. Everything has got to be good. "But I feel like I'm about an eight and a half right now". "Obviously it's really frustrating".

The Constitutional Assembly has also been called the National Electoral Council and the National Constituent Assembly. President Trump threatened Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro with, "strong and swift economic actions" if he continued with his plan to rewrite the country's constitution.

The Bloomberg report, published first, claims that the Trump administration is preparing to freeze USA -based assets of up to 20 Venezuelan officials sometime this week.

But, on the same day, a summit of 17 regional opponents in Peru's capital Lima agreed 16 measures against Venezuela, including rejecting the new assembly and labelling Mr Maduro's elected government a "dictatorship".

The responsibility for human rights violations in Venezuela "lies at the highest level of government", the United Nations human rights office has said.

Since the protests turned violent four months ago, almost 130 people have died.

As the number of deaths continues to rise on the streets of Caracas, Nicolas Maduro threatens to unleash a ruthless army, if the protesters will attempt to overthrow the government, writes The Guardian.

The ambassadors also recognized that candidates from across the political spectrum had enrolled to participate in the regional elections in December. "When Maduro orders, I am dressed as a soldier for a free Venezuela, to fight against the imperialism and those who want to take our flags, which is the most sacred thing we have".
