Vice-President Mike Pence’s visit Latin America comes amid unrest in Venezuela and concern by its neighbours about a possible American military role.
Pence planned to meet with Colombia’s president, Juan Manuel Santos, later Sunday at the start of a weeklong trip likely to be dominated by conversations about the crisis in Venezuela. The United States accuses Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro of a power grab that has sparked deadly protests and condemnation across the region.
President Donald Trump on Friday said he would not rule out a “military option” in response to Maduro’s moves.
