In an interview on Sunday, Venezuela's Foreign Minister Elías Jaua remarked that Venezuela seeks "good relations" with the United States and ratified that President Hugo Chávez's Government has been taking steps to better US-Venezuela bilateral relations. However, he stressed that Venezuela is by no means "desperate" to reach said goal.

"We look forward to having good relations with the US, but we are by no means desperate to do so. We have learned and demonstrated that it is possible to live with dignity without having a US ambassador in Venezuela," the foreign minister stated.

However, Jaua condemned two episodes that recently took place amid attempts to resume the relationship. The first one came after US President Barack Obama said that Chávez adopted "authoritarian policies" in the past. The second one is related to a statement issued by newly appointed Secretary of State John Kerry, who warned about an impending "transition" in Venezuela.

Is protest over?

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.
