EU Council President Donald Tusk said Wednesday he "hopes that all of Europe will unite in support of democratic forces in Venezuela" after several major countries recognised opposition leader Juan Guaido as the South American country's "interim president".

"Unlike (Venezuelan President Nicolas) Maduro, the parliamentary assembly, including Juan Guaido have a democratic mandate from Venezuelan citizens," Tusk wrote on Twitter.
