Advisor Raps US’ Double Standards on Venezuela“Trump continues his intervention and the blatant abuse of Venezuela's internal conditions and insists on instigating riots and civil war in the country, instead of respecting democracy and pushing the opposition towards a national dialogue,” Amir Abdollahianwrote on his Twitter page today.

"This is another example of the United States and its allies' double standards,” Amir-Abdollahian added.

In a related front, Iranian foreign ministry called for the peaceful settlement of the crisis in Venezuela, stressing support for the country's government and nation against foreign intervention.

Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi reacted to the recent political developments in Venezuela and the US overt and unlawful interventions in the country’s domestic affairs on Thursday.

"The Islamic Republic of Iran supports the government and the nation of Venezuela in the face of any foreign intervention in the country’s internal affairs or any illegal or anti-popular actions, such as attempts to stage coups,” he said.

Qassemi expressed the hope that any political disagreements in Venezuela would be resolved as soon as possible by the people and government of the country through adoption of legal and peaceful solutions.

Following the US’ recognition of Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido as the interim president of the country, Venezuela’s President Nicolas Maduro said Wednesday that Caracas was breaking diplomatic relations with the US, giving American diplomatic personnel 72 hours to leave the country.

Maduro stressed that the US had attempted to stage a coup in Venezuela, and vowed to fight for the Venezuelan people's right to peace and a sovereign government of their choosing.

"We've had enough interventionism, here we have dignity, damn it!" he said in a televised address from the presidential palace.
