By Agence France-Presse

Cuba sprang to the defense of its socialist ally Nicolas Maduro on Wednesday, expressing its “support” for the Venezuela president and hitting out at “imperialist” foes after opposition leader Juan Guaido declared himself president.

Writing on Twitter, Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel expressed “our support and solidarity to President Nicolas Maduro after the imperialist attempts to discredit and destabilize the Bolivarian Revolution.”

Foreign Minster Bruno Rodriguez described Guaido’s move, that was backed by the United States and many Latin American countries, as a “coup attempt.”
