Venezuela issues ‘reciprocal’ measures against US officials

The Venezuelan foreign ministry has issued the US embassy in Caracas with a series of “reciprocal” measures in line with President Nicolas Maduro’s announcement last weekend in this regard.

These measures include a requirement that Americans wishing to enter Venezuela have visa approval prior to their arrival in the country, and that the US reduce its diplomatic delegation in Caracas to 17 officials, Spanish news agency Efe reported.

The measures issued on Monday deliver another blow to the already fragile relations between the two countries.

The two have been without high level diplomatic representation since 2010, and developments of the last few days suggest a situation far from settled.

The new measures were announced last weekend by Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro.
