VENEZUELAN GOVERNMENT EXPELS GERMAN AMBASSADOR DANIEL KRIENER

The Venezuelan government has announced it will expel German ambassador Daniel Kriener.

A government statement declared Ambassador Kriener “persona non grata” and accused him of “recurrent acts of interference in internal affairs”.

Mr Kriener was among a group of diplomats who helped opposition leader Juan Guaidó return to Venezuela on Monday by meeting him at the airport.

Mr Guaidó had defied a travel ban and was widely expected to be arrested.

But when he flew into Caracas’s main airport on Monday, he was let through immigration and a group of diplomats welcomed him and then escorted him out of the airport building.

Earlier, officials from the US, the EU and a number of Latin American countries had warned the Venezuelan government not to arrest or harm Mr Guaidó.

Mr Kriener has been given 48 hours to leave Venezuela, German broadcaster Tagesschau reports.
