Germany ready to recognize Guaido if Venezuela doesn't call elections
Juan Guaido, head of Venezuela's opposition-run congress, declares himself interim president of the nation until elections can be held during a rally demanding President Nicolas Maduro's resignation in Caracas, Venezuela, Jan. 23, 2019.

The German government is ready to recognize Juan Guaido as interim president of Venezuela if elections are not called in eight days, a government spokeswoman said on Twitter on Saturday.

“If elections are not announced in eight days, we are ready to recognize Juan Guaido as interim president, who can initiate a political process (and) work with European partners,” spokeswoman Martina Fietz said on Twitter.

France and Spain made similar statements earlier on Saturday.
