The United States will withdraw its remaining diplomatic staffs from the Caracas’ embassy as the crisis state in Venezuela increases, reports Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Monday.
Mr. Pompeo Twitter post reads, “This decision reflects the deteriorating situation in #Venezuela as well as the conclusion that the presence of US diplomatic staff at the embassy has become a constraint on US policy.”
On January 24, the State Department had ordered for all non-emergency US government employees to depart from Venezuela. Because Venezuela President Nicolas Maduro is going through a stiff challenge for power from his opponent leader Juan Guaido due to an acute economic crisis.
On that very day, the State Department has further urged the US people living in Venezuela to consider leaving the place.
