Vox Popoli: Italy imposes sanity

Rome has effectively derailed an EU statement meant to recognize Juan Guaido as Venezuela’s interim leader if President Nicolas Maduro fails to set up snap elections, a Five Star Movement source confirmed to RT. Italy announced the veto at an informal meeting of EU foreign ministers that started on January 31 in Romania, the source said. The statement, which was supposed to be delivered by EU foreign affairs chief Federica Mogherini recognized Guaido as interim president if snap elections were not held.

It's amazing to see 5 Stars aggressively following the nationalist tone being set by La Lega's Salvini. Or Santo Matteo, as he is increasingly being called.

And while the EU is at it, perhaps it should note that Macron is a less legitimate national leader than Maduro.
