Iran’s Defense Minister In Venezuela For Maduro Inauguration, Bilateral Ties

He vowed to continue the legacy of the late President Hugo Chavez and accused the United States of trying to ignite unrest through its increasing economic sanctions.

"Venezuela is the center of a world war with United States imperialism and its satellite governments", the socialist leader retorted in a rambling speech which lasted around two hours.

Maduro, a 56-year-old former bus driver and Chavez's hand-picked successor, took the helm of government after narrowly winning election following Chavez's 2013 death.

He said Venezuela is willing to maintain high-level exchanges with China, share experience in the governance of the country and promote pragmatic cooperation in various fields such as agriculture to jointly build a better future of bilateral relationship.

In a special session in Washington, the OAS similarly backed a resolution declaring Maduro's government illegitimate.

Before he had even completed his inaugural speech, the United States decried a "usurpation of power", and Paraguay announced it was cutting diplomatic ties - highlighting the growing isolation that Maduro will face.

It was approved with 19 votes in favour, six against, and eight abstentions, with one member absent.

During an October 26, 2018 cocktail reception at in St. Kitts at the Embassy of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela the Government of St. Kitts and Nevis and the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela celebrated the 35thanniversary of the establishment of their diplomatic relations.

"President Maduro is today starting a new mandate on the basis of non-democratic elections", the statement said.

Venezuela has the world's largest underground oil reserves, but crude production continues to crash.

Most countries from Europe and Latin American didn't send representatives to the swearing-in.

The re-inauguration took place before the country's Supreme Court instead of its opposition-run Congress, which has been stripped of its powers since Maduro's ruling Socialist Party lost control of it in 2016. Output has plummeted to less than a third of that.

The economic collapse has left the nation of roughly 30 million in the throes of a historic crisis.

The International Monetary Fund predicts that Venezuela's economy will shrink by 5% next year, with inflation - which reached 1.35 million percent in 2018 - hitting a staggering 10 million percent.

According to the United Nations, 2.3 million Venezuelans have fled the country since 2015 to escape economic hardship. Maduro's government has jailed or driven into exile its most popular opposition leaders.

He also demanded "respect" from the European Union, accusing the bloc of "old colonialism" and "old racism" after it said Thursday that Maduro "lacked any credibility".

The Trump administration has increased pressure on Maduro through financial sanctions, targeting dozens in Maduro's government.
