US Senator sees an "opportunity of transition" in Venezuela
"Depending on what will happen in Venezuela, there could be a real opportunity of transition there"
"Depending on what will happen in Venezuela, there could be a real opportunity of transition there," said Kerry in his hearing of confirmation for his position, where he also expressed confidence in renewed US relations with Ecuador and Bolivia, Efe cited.
There is "an opportunity looking at our face" in US-Latin American relations, Kerry reckoned. The Senator also expects the United States to "improve and making a greater effort" in the region during his incumbency as the next Secretary of State.
President Nicolás Maduro is not only the heir to the throne, but also to an economic crisis which demanded urgent measures to rectify the course. The crisis showed up in two aspects: a 50% inflation estimate, and shortage of staples ranging between 70% and 98%. These issues might hit the President's poor popularity; considering his feeble electoral victory of 1% over his challenger.
