The United States and Latin American nations want "the situation to be dispelled" in Venezuela, said US Assistant Secretary of State for Western Hemisphere Affairs Roberta S. Jacobson.

"It is a difficult period for Venezuelans," Jacobson replied when queried about the uncertainty prevailing in Venezuela as a result of the disease of President Hugo Chávez. She said once again that the US government quite a few times has reposed hope in the president's getting well, Efe cited.

The US government officer explained that she contacted "many" of her Latin American colleagues over the past few weeks to speak about the state of affairs in Venezuela.

"All of us want the situation in Venezuela to clarify," she said, adding that if the Venezuelan Constitution provides for "new election," she expects it to be "open to everyone."

In this regard, she advocated the resolution of problems in Venezuela under the Venezuelan Constitution and democratic legal instruments.

President Chávez remains in hospital in Havana following a fourth surgery last December 11 to treat his cancer. His health condition prevented him from taking office last January 10, as scheduled, after being reelected in the last presidential election.
