PARIS — French President Emmanuel Macron has met with senior figures of Venezuela’s opposition on a self-styled “European tour” to rally international pressure on President Nicolás Maduro.

Julio Borges, the president of Venezuela’s parliament, its vice-president Freddy Guevara and leading opposition activist Roberto Patiño arrived at the Elysee Palace Monday. Lilian Tintori, a prominent opposition activist and wife of prominent political prisoner Leopoldo López, was not present even though she was meant to attend.


Tintori said her passport had been confiscated and that she was barred from leaving Venezuela.

Macron recently described Maduro’s leadership a “dictatorship.”

Borges tweeted over the weekend that he will also meet with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, British Prime Minister Theresa May and Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy in the coming days.
