12:02 pm
using what they are throwing at us to continue with our protests we want an end to the usurper and demand freedom. bill sloper they talk about is nicole a model who was sworn in for another six year term earlier this month. one why you don't is the man that challenges his illegitimacy he's the president of the national assembly at powerless opposition controlled body that has proclaimed him the country's interim president. i swear to assume the powers of the national executive as the interim president of venezuela to secure an end to the usurpation and treasonous government and to have free elections if it is to be let god and country reward us and if not let god and country demand. on wednesday why the last claim to office was recognized by u.s. president donald trump and several other leaders in the region who regard a dictator he still controls the military and the country's main institutions.

12:04 pm
now russia says any moves to remove president nicolas maduro from power are illegal turkey's also expressed support for the embattled leader calling him a brother canada who has joined the u.s. in calling for nicolas maduro to resign saying it recognizes one garrido as the new leader of venezuela brazil has also joined the chorus backing quite a along with argentina chile colombia and guatemala but mexico says it still recognizes as president for now while bolivia and cuba say they remain maduro's committed allies alan fischer tells us more about washington's strategy. well donald trump says he's going to use all economic and diplomatic pressure he can on venezuela now you'll know that there have been sanctions on venezuela for the last number of years since that time in fact chavez the difficulty of course is then what do you still have that you can use and a senior administration official has been briefing journalists in the last few
12:05 pm
hours saying that there are plenty tools still in the box certainly we can see that this wasn't just something that happened as an isolated incident there was clearly a coordinated effort from a number of countries who said that if the national assembly leader declared himself as the interim president then they would ride in behind them with diplomatic recognition and we've certainly seen that from the united states we've seen it too from canada but they have been joined by brazil colombia and also part of quite interestingly enough though we are also seeing mexico saying just in the last few hours that their diplomatic relations with venezuela remain unchanged so they continue to recognize the government of nicolas maduro it's interesting too when they are talking about what sanctions they can employ that the united states are shying away from talking about any possible oil embargo that is because there's a great deal of venezuelan oil makes its way into the united states if you suddenly cut off supply that will drive up the price at the pumps that causes pressure on
12:06 pm
the economy an economy that is already experiencing some difficulties because of the partial government shutdown that is not something that donald trump wants to consider at this moment but it's clear that the united states are among the countries that are building up an alliance of coolish and against nicolas maduro and what is also clear is that the united states when they are talking about diplomatic and economic action against nicolas maduro that will be largely dictated by what nicolas maduro does in response on the streets in venezuela in the coming hours and days. well let's speak some more about this not to collin harding who is an analyst who was latin america editor of the u.k.'s independent newspaper a joins us via skype from manchester in northern england thank you very much for being with us on al-jazeera so nicolas maduro has given us diplomats until sunday to get out of venezuela but one of the south ticket president who has backing from the u.s. as we saw say if they can stay what does the last say who is in power today in
12:07 pm
venezuela according to the constitution of a country well i'm not a lawyer so i'm worthless this is a very different picture that's. wrong why no says that he is opposing the constitution which means that if they presidency is a day turns and the first medal has been declared a user if the president says major they president of the national assembly which is great you know take so reza interim president to go in our elections and that's what he says he's done because this is not recognized by the government so we do have this bizarre situation in which for instance a regular as a look at american troops not to leave now. they're saying that they've no reason to know they are president. has asked them to state we do have a impossible situation it's going to be a very dense drizzle indeed a bizarre situation as you say quite an uncertain one as well how do you see
12:08 pm
playing out do you think the recognition by the u.s. will both case. no well it may not be doing him a favor i mean some people think that's because the majority of the government is saying this is their an american inspired attempt to pull off now and illustrate khun. hoping that the military will join in better and that that is what happened so far. it is extremely difficult to replace coal. it is know that there are there is discontent in the military in that particular ranks and the fact that the situation in problem is with many other venezuelans that whether they will break ranks and whether they senior officers will decide this era that the game is up from there on the switch thousand is the big gamble that it is taking it is a huge gamble hoping there's that magic to really be convinced by this
12:09 pm
international coalition of support and will convince material that the game is that they have to go through something that can be asked and there's no guarantee that it will make tough doubts in the situations of the past and they may do so again so as you say the military backing the door so far what could lead them to change sides what would it take for the military to to to back quite a show instead of madeira. i think their calculation that's their best interest farai by switching sides and we had an interesting injury with a senior officer where the jan along the senior officer who said we are loyal to president maduro until he goes that's interesting choice of words because they didn't take the death you know forever they step until it goes leaving open the possibility is going to go and i think if they decide that's inevitable they will.
12:10 pm
no doubt about that doing very well have been doing very well under the matter of government they control large parts of the economy that there is involved in the corruption which is rampant in the right if they decide that it's no longer possible they were there was such a kind hurting interesting reaction regionally as well with brazil argentina chile colombia and guatemala backing quite oh but mexico is saying that it's still recognizes dural as president who tell us about this regional you know this regional reaction and why is it this way how do you see this playing out in the long run. well there's that we're told the group the lima group which is out of mostly conscious of south america which i accept. which is being pretty pressure on the matter of government the organization of american states rights groups know little countries in latin america is also now meddling that is the first arab entity to recognize who i do as president before age he taken the oath and self
12:11 pm
mexico is an interesting case because and the president now look this obrador as reverse it to what he says this is his next case previous policy which is not to get involved in other country's internal affairs and he's sticking to that but he also has a certain sort of gist of sympathy i think for a major oh because it's not a separate or it doesn't sound as left of center and progressive and damned aides who want to be seen to be attacking and as a left wing government. trying to get the house of latin america in common with with many other countries narrow now has recognized grado as the interim president what right at least it is now if efficiency is going to stay there it is and i'm long to organize the free elections. legation but that's a big steps that still quite a lot of uncertainty in the meantime thank you very much for your insight colleen
12:12 pm
harding joining us there from manchester in the u k. yes present donald trump says he won't give up he won't give his annual state of the union speech of congress until there's an end to the partial government shutdown there was speculation he delivered somewhere outside after democratic speaker nancy pelosi withdrew her invitation to allow him a platform in the house of representatives tweeting earlier trump said i'll do the address when the shutdown is over i'm not looking for now turning to a venue for the state of the union address because there is no venue that can compete with the history tradition and importance of the house chamber he added i look forward to giving a great feat of the union address in the near future mike hanna has more on this from washington on the one side the speaker of the house nancy pelosi on the other the president of the united states the country's two most powerful political figures locked in a bitter dispute over the annual state of the union address. last year the president addressed
12:13 pm
a joint session of congress in which republicans controlled both senate and house and extend to you. but in the been busy lections of democrats seized control of the house of representatives nancy pelosi became house speaker and after the shutdown began she withdrew the necessary invitation to the president to speak in this letter the president brushed aside her stated security concerns and told the house speaker he would be in congress on tuesday night to deliver the speech not so said nancy pelosi in a letter by return of messenger she would not allow the speech in the house chamber to go ahead and answer portion or nancy as a call or she doesn't want to hear. the truth and she doesn't want to hear more importantly the american people have the truth so we just found out that she is careful that i think that's a great blood which of the incredible country that we all love
12:14 pm
it's a great great horrible mark. the president was expected to use his address to once again press for a wall on the southern border and continues to insist he will veto any funding legislation that does not allow five point seven billion dollars for the project there is serious and justify concern that this president which shut down the government any time he does not get his way legislatively that is why we must hold the line on this shutdown. but in a late night tweet the president conceded this particular argument saying he was not looking for an alternative venue that would hold his state of the union address until after the partial government shutdown is over mike hanna al-jazeera washington. the weather is next on al-jazeera and still ahead. zimbabwe remembers a musical and human life hero on even the to coetzee. through
