Argentine ambassador backs Venezuela's Maduro to stay in power

The Argentine ambassador in Caracas, Carlos Cheppi, has declared his confidence that Nicolás Maduro would not be forced out of office early as president of Venezuela, describing rumours of that eventuality as "crazy" in an interview held today.

Speaking to Nacional Rock, Cheppi threw his support behind the head of state, whose administration has been targeted for the past two weeks by student protests.

"I am convinced that here there is no way for Maduro to leave the government, no chance. The government is very solid. It is crazy to think he has to go," the diplomat explained.

Cheppi also explained that with respects to the protests, "the situation is calm, the city has maintained a normal except for day 12," which he explained was when "all the most serious problems" took place.

"Afterwards some roadblocks have been kept up in some areas of the city and the biggest movilisations, like those yesterday, were luckily peaceful and there were almost no problems. At night some of the blocks in the east of the city were up with more strength but they are becoming fewer and fewer," he detailed.

The Argentine representative in Caracas took the opportunity to criticise several media outlets from his native country: "The way they manipulate information sickens you. People see that and it looks like we are in civil war, and it is far from that," he fired.

"The vast majority is moving for peace and non-violence."
