Mozambique: Mozambican Ambassador to Venezuela Presents Credentials

Maputo — Mozambique's new Ambassador to Venezuela, Gamliel Sepulveda, on Thursday presented his credentials to President Nicolas Maduro.

During the ceremony at the presidential palace in Caracas, President Maduro also received the credentials from the Ambassadors of Suriname, Benin, Dominica, Laos, and Zambia.

Following the ceremony, the new diplomats laid flowers at the tomb of the national hero, Simon Bolivar, at the National Pantheon.

The ceremonies took place at a time when President Maduro is under intense pressure to step down both internally and externally. The head of Venezuela's National Assembly, Juan Guaido, on 23 January declared himself President and has been recognised, inter alia, by the United States, Canada, many South American countries, Australia, and Ukraine.

The European Union set Sunday as a deadline for President Maduro to call new elections. However, his response was "we don't accept ultimatums from anyone. It is like if I told the European Union "I give you seven days to recognise the Republic of Catalonia".
