Argentina announces it has severed diplomatic ties with the disputed Nicolás Maduro-led Government of Venezuela in favour of explicit recognition of opposition leader Juan Guaidó as interim president of Venezuela in the context of the 2019 Venezuelan presidential crisis.
The President of the National Assembly of Venezuela Juan Guaidó tells the BBC he is considering formally requesting the United States to launch a military intervention to topple President Nicolás Maduro. Guaidó led a failed uprising against Maduro last month.
The Organization of American States votes 18 to 9, with six abstentions, to accept Gustavo Tarre Briceño as the ambassador from Venezuela. Tarre is the envoy from Juan Guaidó's government; Nicolás Maduro's Foreign Ministry calls Tarre a "political usurper".
Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro, in an interview with the BBC's Orla Guerin, accuses U.S. President Donald Trump of being openly a white supremacist who is "warmongering against Venezuela", saying that "the Ku Klux Klan is running the White House".
The Venezuelan National Guard blocks off a bridge on the Colombia–Venezuela border with a tanker truck. The Venezuelan opposition had been planning to use the bridge to bring humanitarian aid into the country, while President Nicolás Maduro has rejected foreign aid, saying "we're not a nation of beggars".
A mutiny by members of the Venezuelan National Guard who oppose the government is quashed. The Venezuelan Military in a statement says they were involved in "treasonous" acts motivated by "obscure interests tied to the far right."
