Venezuela oil czar courts India after $20 billion hit from US

"Get out Donald Trump, get out his threats!", Maduro said.

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro officially launched on Sunday the country's most large-scale military drills ever, according to a live broadcast of the event.

Guaido asked supporters to participate in a mass mobilization, saying it may be up to the people to bring the aid into the country.

"(Guaido) will announce the day when, from Colombia, from the islands by sea, and from Brazil the humanitarian aid will arrive simultaneously", Toledo said.

Shipments of US food, medicine, and humanitarian aid are on the Colombian side, with a tanker and two large trucks sitting in the middle of the bridge.

Colman said. "We're going to get so pissed (drunk) later". "It's got my name on it, but we can scatch some other names on". He paid tribute to his co-star, Lady Gaga, who was attending the Grammys in LA, which were taking place on the same night.

Venezuela's self-proclaimed acting president Guaido on Friday refused to rule out the possibility of authorising United States intervention to help force President Nicolas Maduro from power and alleviate a humanitarian crisis.

The large-scale military exercise, which is being held in the country's 200-year history, will continue until February 15.

The United States was the first to recognize Guaido as the president of Venezuela, followed by Canada, and many Latin and European nations.

A humanitarian convoy carrying aid from non-governmental organizations may enter Venezuela in the coming days, self-declared interim president Juan Guaido's representative to the Organization of American States (OAS) Gustavo Tarre told Sputnik on Monday.

PDVSA also ordered its Petrocedeno joint venture with Equinor and Total to halt extra-heavy oil output and upgrading due to a lack of naphtha needed to dilute production, as sanctions prohibited US suppliers of the fuel from exporting it to Venezuela.

Under Maduro's stewardship, oil-rich Venezuela's economy has collapsed leaving the country wracked by hyperinflation, recession and shortages of basic necessities such as food and medicine.
