Canada suspends operations at its Venezuela embassy

Canada has announced that it is shutting its embassy in the Venezuelan capital Caracas temporarily.

The reason, it says, is that President Nicolás Maduro’s Venezuelan government has “taken steps to limit the ability of foreign embassies to function”. Diplomatic visas unable to be renewed under Maduro government, forcing embassy closure, Freeland says

Canada is one of more than 50 nations that recognise opposition leader Juan Guaidó as Venezuela’s acting president.

For several months, Canada has advised Canadians to avoid all travel to Venezuela.

Freeland said Canada will still provide consular services through its embassy in neighbouring Colombia.
