Earlier, the European Union included 11 Venezuelan officials and parliamentarians on the sanctions list for opposing the opposition led by Juan Guaido and “undermining democracy” in that country.

The Venezuelan government decided to expel the EU representative in Caracas from the country after the EU included 11 Venezuelan officials and parliamentarians on the sanctions list. This was announced on Monday by the president of the South American country, Nicolas Maduro.

“I decided to give the EU representative in Caracas 72 hours to leave the country and demand respect from the EU. Enough European colonialism and persecution of Venezuela,” he said at a speech broadcast on Venezolana de Television.

“She was already provided with a plane to fly away. Then we will gradually resolve issues with the European Union. If they do not like us, if they do not respect Venezuela, let them leave,” Maduro said.

On Monday, the European Union included 11 Venezuelan officials and parliamentarians on the sanctions list for opposing the opposition led by Juan Guaido and “undermining democracy” in that country. They are forbidden to enter the EU, and their accounts in European banks, if they can be found, are subject to freezing.
