Legal teams representing Maduro and Guaido will be at the UK Supreme Court onnMonday in the latest stage of a long-running tug-of-war over what amounts to about 15% of Venezuela’s foreign currency reserves. Lawyers representing the central bank say selling the gold would fund the response tonthe coronavirus pandemic and bolster a health system gutted by more than six years of economic crisis. The Bank of England, whose vaults house the gold, has refused to release it, however,nafter the British government in early 2019 joined dozens of others countries in backing Guaido on the basis that Maduro’s presidential election victory the previous year was rigged. The British Foreign Office said in a statement, having been invited by the Supreme Court said: “The UK government is clear that Juan Guaido is the only legitimate President of Venezuela. He is the only individual recognised to have the authority to act on behalf of Venezuela as its head of state.” Recently, speaking to reporters on the sidelines of a United Nations SecuritynCouncil meeting, Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard said Mexico would seek to restore diplomatic and commercial relations with North Korea.nIn particular, Ebrard emphasized, Mexico respects all governments and wants to reopen relations with North Korea, just like with any other country.

China has launched the world’s largest carbon emissions trading scheme (ETS)nafter weeks of delays because of concerns about companies falsifying data, in a move that will put further pressure on Australia’s energy-intensive exports. Itnbrings China a step closer to achieving President Xi Jinping’s goal of net zero emissions by 2060 Analysts said the scheme was structurally similar to those in other countries butnthat its implementation was weak as it was limited to the electricity generation sector without a hard cap on emissions and low fines for companies not complying. Although the scheme would broadly put pressure on Chinese emitters to use lessncoal and switch to cleaner energy sources – which would hurt Australian exports in the long term – it could also increase demand for cleaner thermal coal fromnAustralia.
