US to use its power to reverse Venezuela crisis - Bolton

United States will use the "full weight" of its power to push for the "restoration of democracy" in Venezuela, National Security Advisor John Bolton said in a statement, reiterating his previous claims of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro's "illegitimacy."

"We hold the illegitimate Maduro regime directly responsible for the safety of all Venezuelans who cry out demanding to freely choose their leaders. We will continue to use the full weight of United States economic and diplomatic power to press for the restoration of a Venezuelan democracy that reverses the current constitutional crisis," Bolton stated.

Washington recently issued new sanctions against Venezuela.
