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.
That political protest in Venezuela has lost momentum seems pretty obvious: people are no longer building barricades to block off streets near Plaza Francia in Altamira (eastern Caracas), an anti-government stronghold; no new images have been shown of brave and dashing protesters with bandanna-covered faces clashing with the National Guard in San Cristóbal, in the western state of Táchira; and those who dreamed of a horde of "Gochos" (Tachirans) descending in an avalanche to stir up revolt in Caracas have been left with no option but to wake up to reality.
