Pence: Democracy in Venezuela can be achieved by peaceable means

US Vice President Mike Pence stated that the US are confident that it is possible to «achieve a restoration of democracy in Venezuela by peaceable means,» speaking alongside Argentinian President Mauricio Macri at a press conference in Buenos Aires, Tuesday. «We truly believe that by increasing economic and diplomatic pressure on the Maduro regime — not just across the Americas, but across the... Еще wider world — that we can achieve a restoration of democracy in Venezuela by peaceable means,» said Pence. Pence pointed out that «Venezuela is sliding into dictatorship,» and, by quoting US President Donald Trump, he reiterated that «the United States will not stand by as Venezuela crumbles.» On Friday, Trump said that he was «not going to rule out a military option» against Venezuela, a statement that prompted the newly elected constituent assembly of Venezuela to respond saying that country is prepared to «do anything» to confront «any threat”. This was Pence's first visit to Argentina as US Vice-President since his swearing-in on January 20, 2017.
