    Venezuela’s Ambassador to the UK Rocio Maneiro is holding a press conference in London. The ambassador is expected to address issues such as the blockade her country is suffering and its political and economic consequences.

    Russia, China and a number other countries supported Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro as the only legitimate leader of the country.
