The Spanish Foreign Ministry issued a statement recognizing the proclamation of Nicolás Maduro as the president-elect of Venezuela. The statement came after a diplomatic impasse between Caracas and Madrid after the narrow win for the ruling party candidate over his challenger, Henrique Capriles, in the presidential election held on April 14.

"Upon completion of our internal constitutional and legal procedures, the Spanish Government respects the proclamation made by the National Electoral Council of Nicolás Maduro as the president-elect of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela," the Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs said, according to AFP.

Further, the Spanish Government said it hoped that "within the framework of the Constitution, all political players act responsibly and show respect for institutions."
