PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC) — Leaders from across the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), met via video conference on Thursday in a special emergency meeting to discuss the ongoing crisis in Venezuela.

While CARICOM is yet to issue an official position on the situation in Venezuela, several countries in the region have already taken a stance on the crisis in the South American nation.

In the case of Jamaica, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs says the government is closely monitoring the latest developments.

The Government of Guyana says it is gravely concerned at the deepening of the political crisis and supports calls made at both the regional and international levels for immediate dialogue involving all political and social actors, with a view to the preservation of the democratic process and a return to normality.

On Wednesday, opposition leader Juan Guaid declared himself interim leader of Venezuela, a move recognised by the United States.

Since then, President Nicols Maduro, who retains some other nations’ support, broke off relations with the US.

Maduro has been in office since 2013. He was sworn in for a second term earlier this month, after winning a May 2018 election marred by an opposition boycott and widespread claims of vote-rigging. Earlier this month, Jamaica, Haiti, the Bahamas, Guyana and St Lucia supported a resolution by the Organisation of American States in not recognising the second five-year term of President Maduro, while Dominica, St Vincent and the Grenadines and Suriname voted against the measure.

St Kitts-Nevis, Trinidad and Tobago, Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, and Belize abstained during the vote, while Grenada was not present when the matter was put to the vote.
