Venezuelan Armed Forces support the President of the country Nicolas Maduro, but not Juan Guaido, the self-proclaimed acting head of state, the President of the National Assembly (parliament) and an oppositionist, as Vladimir Padrino Lopez, Defence Minister of the country, said, Interfax reported.
The Minister assured that the army would “protect the constitution of the country and provide sovereignty” and would not recognize the president, “who is being ”imposed to protect the dark interests, the one who is self-proclaimed and illegal”.

On Wednesday, January 23, the opposition leader and the Head of the National Assembly of Venezuela proclaimed himself a temporary President and took an oath before thousands of opposition followers.
