CARACAS (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 30th October, 2020) Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has accused Spain of becoming the center of conspiracy against Venezuela after the arrival of Venezuelan opposition activist Leopoldo Lopez to Spain.
"Spain has become the center of conspiracy, Madrid is situated in the center of the conspiracy against Venezuelan peace and democracy, so I denounce it," Maduro said on his speech aired by Venezolana de Television channel on Thursday.
Earlier in October Leopoldo Lopez ran off to Spain from Venezuela where he had been convicted for the death of 43 people during anti governmental demonstrations in 2014. In 2019 he sought asylum in the residence of Spanish Ambassador Jesus Silva, whom Venezuela accused of conspiring against the Latin American country.
The Spanish government said that they would not send another diplomat to Venezuela after Silva's recall. Both countries accused each other of violating the Vienna Convention for Diplomatic Relations in the recent days.
