Pence Meets With Guaido Amidst Venezuela Unrest
U.S. Vice President Mike Pence told U.S.-recognized interim president of Venezuela, Juan Guaido, that the U.S. is behind him “100 percent”.
Pence made the comment during a trilateral meeting in Bogota, Colombia with Guiado and Colombian President Ivan Duque.
While in Bogota, Pence and regional leaders are expected to discuss strategy to hasten the departure of disputed Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro and how to get humanitarian aid currently piling up on the border in Brazil and Colombia into Venezuela, where supplies of food and medicine have run low. He delivered a speech to the Lima Group on the growing crisis in Venezuela.
