US Rejects Mexico, Uruguay, Vatican Mediation Efforts to Keep Maduro in Power

A senior US official told Reuters on Thursday that Washington believes other countries will ultimately see that it is in their interests to recognize Venezuela's self-proclaimed interim President Juan Guaido and his government.

Moreover, the US government on Thursday warned Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro there would be consequences for what it called "egregious" acts of intimidation against Guaido, the senior US official said, according to Reuters.

According to Reuters, the US wants Venezuela's oil company PDVSA and its subsidiary Citgo to remain viable in wake of new sanctions that were imposed earlier this week.
