Western Hemisphere: United States Assisting Venezuelans in Need”

Chavez, who is also the vice-president of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV), pointed out that governments like the one led by the Farabundo Marti National Liberation Front (FMLN) are targets of that USA counteroffensive.

Pence met with Julio Borges, a Venezuelan opposition lawmaker and former speaker of the National Assembly, David Smolansky, former mayor of the city of El Hatillo, Carlos Vecchio, political coordinator of the Popular Will party he co-founded with opposition leader Leopoldo Lopez, and Antonio Ledezma, former mayor of Caracas.
