Palacek, like numerous protesters, said he doesn't blame Maduro or his predecessor Hugo Chavez for the humanitarian crisis in Venezuela.

While the USA never ruled out a military option to support Juan Guaidó's claim to power, so far Washington has called for a peaceful transition of power in the Latin American country.

Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido walks at the National Assembly before a news conference in Caracas, Venezuela February 4, 2019.

The situation deteriorated when Guaidó declared himself interim president and was recognized by a number of countries around the world including the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada.

Maduro said that if Trump was physically in front of him, he would reply to him saying, "Stop, stop Donald Trump, stop there, you are making mistakes that you are going to stain your hands with blood and you will leave the presidency stained with blood", CNN reported, quoting Spanish channel LaSexta Sunday. "You want to humiliate Venezuela, and I will not let our people be humiliated", he said on Monday.

Guaido is trying to force Maduro from power, set up a transitional government and hold a new presidential poll.

Radev, head of state for the past two years after election on a ticket backed by the opposition and pro-Moscow Bulgarian Socialist Party, said that there is a real risk of escalation and violence in Venezuela, and it was critical to maintain dialogue between the government and the opposition.

As a result, the new outlet claims she has hired herself a birth partner, something the rest of the royal family hasn't done. A source said: " Meghan is focused on calm and positive energy around the birth - she is a big believer in that".

Eurasia Group analysts say the humanitarian crisis "represents a lose-lose gambit for Maduro" who will either have to allow the goods to enter the country, further bolstering Guaido, or force the military to block their entry, risking a backlash in the streets.

The top Japanese government spokesman also said, "It is regrettable that the Venezuelan government held an inauguration ceremony for its president without fulfilling its accountability (to the people)", swearing in Maduro for his second term last month after an election in May a year ago.

"I spoke to Juan Guaido yesterday and was pleased to convey Canada's support personally", Mr. Trudeau told the Lima Group gathering.

His hardline position is at odds with poverty-stricken Venezuelans when have been hit hardest by the country's economic collapse.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he would formally recognize Guaido's chosen envoy as Venezuela's legitimate representative in Canada in a move his government called symbolic.

In contrast, Russia, Belarus, Bolivia, Iran, Cuba, Nicaragua, El Salvador and Turkey voiced support for Maduro, while China called for resolving all differences peacefully and warned against foreign interference. Uruguay's central bank and the office of the country's president did not immediately respond to requests for comment. "We are in patriotic march defeating a failed coup of the oligarchies, a patriotic civic-military parade, raising the flags of the independence of Venezuela".
