Argentina's leading opposition presidential hopefuls are unanimous in their support of Venezuela's self-declared president Juan Guaidó.
Guaidó, the head of the Venezuela's outlawed National Assembly in Caracas, declared himself interim president on Wednesday, a move that immediately him earned the support of the Argentine, Brazilian and US governments, as well as the Organisation of American States (OAS).
"The world turns its back on the (Nicolás) Maduro dictatorship and the winds of change begin to blow. Good luck, Venezuela", dissident Peronist leader Sergio Massa wrote on Twitter.
The leader of the PJ Peronist Party minority bloc in the Senate, Miguel Angel Pichetto, described deadly violence in Caracas on Wednesday as "the true face of the Maduro dictatorship".
For his part, UCR Radical Party lawmaker Mario Negri said the "Venezuelan people deserve freedom and peace, central values in a democracy. From Argentina, we send them a hug in this fight against authoritarianism".
"(Argentine President Mauricio) Macri, (Brazil President Jair) Bolsonaro and (Chile President Sebastián) Piñera get on their knees before (US President Donald) Trump who is pushing for a government in Venezuela led by Guaidó", leftist lawmaker Nicolás del Caño said.
