US Orders Some Diplomats to Leave Venezuela

Thursday, 24 January 2019 07:55 PM

The U.S. State Department on Thursday ordered some U.S. government workers to leave Venezuela and said U.S. citizens should consider leaving the country, one day after Washington recognized an opposition politician as Venezuela's president.

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro broke off diplomatic relations with Washington and gave U.S. embassy personnel three days to leave the country after President Donald Trump on Wednesday recognized opposition leader Juan Guaido as president.

In a security alert, the U.S. Embassy in Caracas said non-emergency U.S. government employees had been told to leave Venezuela and American citizens should "strongly consider" departing while commercial flights were still available.
