Appointed ambassador to Morocco last March, the Venezuelan representative of Juan Guaido, interim president recognized by more than 50 countries, held, on Thursday, a meeting with his counterparts from Canada, the United States, France, the United Spain, Colombia, Brazil, Peru, Paraguay, Guatemala, Panama and Argentina.
On Instagram, José Ignacio Guédez, said that this meeting was held with the support of Morocco and in the presence of the director of bilateral relations in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
If this is not the first hearing that has granted him, he has already met Nasser Bourita before, this is his very first public event. “He is sponsored, helped and supported financially also by Moroccan diplomacy,” said a source familiar with the issue.
However, no Moroccan ambassador has yet been appointed to Venezuela. According to diplomatic sources quoted by media, this will be the case “when Guaido will actually take power in Caracas”.
Nasser Bourita also said that Nasser Omar Solarzano, the chargé d’affaires in Rabat “is not representative of Venezuela, but the regime of Nicolas Maduro.”
As recalled, the Solorzana chargé d’affaires has been banned from official activities and has not invited by the Moroccan authorities for months.
According to media, Morocco is the first country in Africa to have recognized Juan Guaido as interim president, without breaking off diplomatic relations with the Maduro government. In statements, Guaido’s representative said that trips are planned to convince other African countries to join the cause of the current Venezuelan interim president.
