The United States will withdraw all remaining U.S. personnel from the U.S. Embassy in Caracas, Venezuela this week.

Like the January 24 decision to withdraw all dependents and reduce embassy staff to a minimum, this decision reflects the deteriorating situation in Venezuela as well as the conclusion that the presence of U.S. diplomatic staff at the embassy has become a constraint on U.S. policy.
