Lavrov: Russia 'Condemns' What It Calls U.S. Moves To Topple Venezuela's Maduro

In Washington, US Vice President Mike Pence kept up the pressure on President Nicolas Maduro's shaken regime by announcing that sanctions against his sacked intelligence chief General Christopher Figuera were being lifted.

In a statement on Facebook, the court said on Tuesday that the assembly would determine if proceedings could be opened to investigate crimes including conspiracy, treason, and rebellion, without detailing which actions the politicians had taken that could be considered criminal. It is only up to the Venezuelans to decide about the future of their country and an inclusive dialogue between all political forces is needed for that.

Guaido earlier met top diplomats from some of the more than 50 countries that support his campaign to seize power from Maduro, whose allies include Russia, China and Cuba.

"We will consider sanctions relief for all those who step up for the constitution and support the rule of law", he said.

"On Saturday, I think the protest was fulfilled".

After his failed attempt to overthrown Maduro, Guaido welcomed the discussions of military options in the U.S., calling them "great news", as he spoke to The Washington Post.

Meanwhile, US National Security Adviser John Bolton reiterated that "all options are on the table" in regards to Venezuela adding, that Washington hoped for a peaceful transfer of power.

"I told the generals and admirals yesterday: loyalty, I want an active loyalty", Maduro said in a speech to some 5,000 troops that was broadcast nationally on radio and television. Additionally, military action would shatter the precious hemispheric consensus that Maduro must go, and would further embolden enabling nations like Cuba and geopolitical powers like China and Russian Federation that immorally back the Maduro regime.

In an interview with Agence France-Presse on Monday, Mr Guaido blamed the failure on unkept promises by other members of the armed forces.

A number of high-ranking U.S. officials have repeatedly stated that all options remain on the table with regard to the Venezuelan crisis, including a military operation.

Without using such antagonistic language, Guaido said there could be a case to seek "foreign co-operation to overcome the unprecedented crisis Venezuela is going through". "Diplomatic options, political options, options with our allies, and then ultimately, a set of options that would involve use of USA military".

Pence will also offer assistance for refugees who have fled the country, and an economic aid package contingent on a political transition, according to the official.

Pence also pledged that the United States would work with other nations and lenders on trade finance and credit to create jobs and fight poverty in Venezuela once Maduro departs office.

The Trump administration has called on Maduro's senior officials and military to throw their support behind Guaido, offering the removal of sanctions should they change course.
