Washington will act in relation to Caracas “with some allies and partners,” said the head of the press service of the State Department, Ned Price.

The new US administration headed by President Joe Biden is not in the mood to enter into a direct dialogue with Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro. This was announced on Wednesday at a regular briefing for journalists by the head of the press service of the US State Department, Ned Price.
