US fomenting a civil war, coup in Venezuela: Expert

The United States is attempting to push Venezuela in to a civil war by recognizing un-elected opposition leader Juan Guaido as interim president, an American human rights expert and peace activist says.

“Clearly they’re trying to foment a coup and possibly push the country into civil war,” said Daniel Kovalik, who teaches international human rights at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law in the state of Pennsylvania.

“They’re recognizing someone who wasn’t only not elected, he didn’t even run for office,” Kovalik told Press TV on Thursday.

Guaido, the president of Venezuela's opposition-led National Assembly, declared himself interim president of the country on Wednesday, and was immediately recognized by the administration of US President Donald Trump.
