KATHMANDU: Russia has clarified its stance of providing support to Venezeula government.

“Russia support the Venezuelan authorities in resolving social and economic problems through legitimate humanitarian aid,” said Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Friday at a joint press conference with Venezuelan Vice President Delcy Rodriguez.

“We are cooperating closely and coordinating all our steps on the international arena,” Lavrov said.

Battered by an economic meltdown, Venezuela descended into political crisis when opposition leader Juan Guaido declared himself interim president in January and asserted that Maduro was no longer legitimate.

Maduro and his allies, including Russia, have accused Washington of attempting to carry out a coup against his government.

The United States has recognised Guaido and led a diplomatic campaign in support of his leadership.
