The Netherlands does not recognize parliament chair Juan Guaidó Márquez as interim president of Venezuela. "The core is not to recognize the assumption of power, the core is an end to the violence", says Minister Stef Blok (Foreign Affairs).

Juan Guaidó Márquez, chairman of the opposition party next to President of the Parliament, declared himself the temporary leader of the South American country on Wednesday.

The European Union then said that it supported the parliament as a democratically elected institution. But in the statement the chairman was not recognized as interim president.

A number of countries, including the United States, do recognize the takeover of Juan Guaidó Márquez. Blok insists on an end to the violence. He believes that democratic elections are needed for this. "I fear more violence."

The re-election last year of May of President Nicolás Maduro is not recognized by the Netherlands because they were not fair elections. The opposition boycotted the ballot box. Venezuela is the largest neighbor of the kingdom.

Venezuela has slipped further under the Maduro regime in a deep economic and social crisis. The economic crisis led to major shortages of food and medication and a large flow of refugees to neighboring countries.
