A new poll shows that people in Venezuela repudiate U.S. attempts to intervene with force. A new poll has found that around 86 percent of people in Venezuela are against international military intervention that would remove the democratically-elected government of President Nicolas Maduro.
The figures come after U.S. Vice President Mike Pence said that the United States would “bring the full measure of American economic and diplomatic power to bear” to see “democracy restored” in Venezuela. His remarks came just days after U.S. President Donald Trump said he wouldn’t rule out a “military option” in the country.
Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos and Argentine President Mauricio Macri both said the region would not accept a military intervention in Venezuela, after their respective meetings with Pence.
