Today, all U.S. diplomats remaining in Venezuela departed the country.

I know it is a difficult moment for them. They are fully dedicated to our mission of supporting the Venezuelan people’s aspirations to live in a democracy and build a better future for their families. U.S. diplomats will now continue that mission from other locations where they will continue to help manage the flow of humanitarian assistance to the Venezuelan people and support the democratic actors bravely resisting tyranny.

The United States government, at all levels, remains firm in its resolve and support for the people of Venezuela and Interim President Juan Guaidó. We look forward to resuming our presence once the transition to democracy begins.
