Reports Regarding Expulsion of U.S. Officials in Venezuela

U.S. Department of State - Washington, D.C.



Regarding recent reports involving the expulsion of U.S. officials in Venezuela, the United States has not received any formal notification.

The allegations that the United States is helping to organize protestors in Venezuela is baseless and false. We support human rights and fundamental freedoms – including freedom of expression and of peaceful assembly – in Venezuela as we do in countries around the world. But as we have long said, Venezuela’s political future is for the Venezuelan people to decide. We urge their government to engage all parties in meaningful dialogue.
