Showdown Looms as US Tells Activists to Leave Venezuelan Embassy

The United States said Thursday that leftist activists defiantly occupying the Venezuelan embassy in Washington should leave and make way for representatives of U.S.-recognized leader Juan Guaido.

Elliott Abrams, the envoy heading the U.S. push to topple President Nicolas Maduro, called the sit-in “a violation of the law” and said that Guaido’s ambassador in Washington would discuss with security officials how to remove them.

“This is sovereign Venezuelan territory. They have to leave,” Abrams told reporters, without setting a timeline.

“It is really striking to find anybody in the U.S. defending the Maduro regime. It is shameful to see them,” he said.
