US Secretary of State John Kerry stated on Wednesday that the US Government had not made any decision on whether Washington would recognize Nicolás Maduro as the new president of Venezuela. Kerry explained that such recognition depend on the settlement of a dispute over the recount of the votes cast in the presidential election held on April 14.

"That evaluation has to be made and I haven't made it," Kerry told the House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee when asked whether the US would recognize the electoral results.

"We think there ought to be a recount," Kerry told legislators.

The diplomat warned that there would be "serious questions" if irregularities in the election are found, EFE cited.
