Washington rules out "made in America" solution for Venezuela
The State Department spokesman said that any political transition in Venezuela must be the results of decisions by Venezuelans
"Obviously we talk to Venezuelans of the whole political spectrum, as we do with every country in the world. Any political transition in Venezuela has to be the result of decisions by Venezuelans, there is no 'made in America' solution," said Nuland at a press conference.
As late as Tuesday, February 25, there was some visible response from Gabriela Ramírez's office. Representatives of the Office of the Ombudswoman would visit independent human rights watch groups to find what happened in connection with repression of protests. That day, they visited NGO Provea. The next day, they met with the attorneys of NGO Venezuelan Criminal Forum. They pursued specific data because -they argued- no claims of human rights violations of demonstrators had been filed with the Office of the Ombudswoman.
