The announcement came after Washington officially recognized the president of Venezuela's parliament as the country's legitimate leader.

The United States, with an average of 500,000 barrels a day, buys 75 percent of Venezuela's oil production.

Juan Guaidó called two new demonstrations, Wednesday and Saturday, asking the Venezuelan army to position itself in favor of the people, and against Nicolás Maduro.
