In an interview on Sunday, Venezuela's Foreign Minister Elías Jaua remarked that Venezuela seeks "good relations" with the United States and ratified that President Hugo Chávez's Government has been taking steps to better US-Venezuela bilateral relations. However, he stressed that Venezuela is by no means "desperate" to reach said goal.

"We look forward to having good relations with the US, but we are by no means desperate to do so. We have learned and demonstrated that it is possible to live with dignity without having a US ambassador in Venezuela," the foreign minister stated.

However, Jaua condemned two episodes that recently took place amid attempts to resume the relationship. The first one came after US President Barack Obama said that Chávez adopted "authoritarian policies" in the past. The second one is related to a statement issued by newly appointed Secretary of State John Kerry, who warned about an impending "transition" in Venezuela.
